This material is can be used for overlay, where it is fixed directly onto the surface and the finishing coat is then built up to level.
It lends it self to many applications including architectural, sign writing, furniture making, musical instruments, jewelry, fishing lures and many more.
Some of the characteristics include flexibility, it can be bent to a great degree especially when coated with flexible resin or spray system such as aliphatic Polyurethane.

Shell veneers can be cut with a sharp knife or even scissors. When cut with scissors it is advisable to apply adhesive tape to top side which is removed when the material is fixed to surface, alternatively it can be coated with resin or spray.

Shell veneers can also be cut using various types of CNC cutting machines such as laser, water jet etc..

Very cost effective when compared with solid shell material.
