Austin Custom CNC Review of King ColorCore®

Fabricator gives a review on using King ColorCore®

Transcript from video:

Check this out. This is my favorite new material. It’s called [King] ColorCore® by a company called King Plastic, and this stuff is amazing. You can see here [that] it cuts like butter. It’s super crisp and the best part about it is there’s zero finishing required. You take this off the CNC and it’s ready to go. It’s a product that’s totally stable outdoors and it’ll last forever. No finishing, no painting because it has a .05 veneer of whatever color you want. It comes in some standard colors. And you can, if you have a really large order of thousands of pounds, you can get custom colors as well… but certainly with standard colors. Once you engrave, you expose whatever the interior color is. Now the obvious use for this is [for] signs, which is what you see me doing here. But I’m really excited about the potential for doing much more creative things. Everything from furniture to art. Somebody actually, I’m not sure who this was, but the manufacturer’s rep sent me this image of a Miami parking garage where they did an entire facade with some really cool engraved [King] ColorCore® and I think this is just the tip of the iceberg with what you can do with this. It’s about 350 dollars for a three-quarter sheet. They also offer one-half inch and one, quarter inch. And this company also offers the solid colors which are often used for playscapes and things like that, [which] are a little bit less expensive as well. So check it out, I think this could be an especially good option for landscape architects and interior designers who want to do something a little bit different and a little bit more interesting. I’m especially curious if anyone can think of a project that would warrant about 3,000 pounds of neon colors because I just really want that. And finally, if you want to learn more about [King] ColorCore® or any other material, I recommend going to our website austincustomcnc.com and at the top, there’s a link to a materials database where we keep this material as well as some rough pricing and suppliers at least for Austin. All right thanks for watching.

King StarBoard® – Flood Damage Control During Hurricane Irma

Testimonial

My house is located on Trout River in Jacksonville, Florida. We were experiencing flood conditions during a nor’easter and the approach of Hurricane Irma. As Hurricane Irma was leaving the area, we received a storm surge with massive flooding throughout. Water came up over my bulkhead, submerged my dock and flooded the yard. Water was continuing to rise with several hours left until the high tide and we were doomed to have water enter the house. At this point the house was completely surrounded by water, we watched as water was inches from entering the house and water was starting to enter the garage.

In a last-ditch attempt, I used a piece of ½” King StarBoard® that was 2’ x 7’ and cut it to fit between my doorjambs on my back door. I used two tubes of latex caulking and caulked the perimeter, put the board in place and then covered the caulking and board with foil tape. I did this all while standing in calf-high water, watching waves over my back shoulder approach the house. I climbed into the house through a window. We sealed up the French doors and put towels at the base right as waves were starting to hit the King StarBoard® dam. By the grace of God, King StarBoard® prevented waves from entering my house.

If it wasn’t for the quick MacGyver-like thinking, and having a piece of King StarBoard® in my garage, I would be taking up my wood floors and drywall as we speak. We are extremely fortunate to not have flooding inside the house. I am so thankful I came up with the idea and used your product in a disaster situation. I know King StarBoard® material is very expensive, but in this case, it’s worth its weight in gold.

Using King StarBoard® to Replace Old Wood Panels on Boat

King StarBoard® is a great product to replace old warped wood panels on a boat. It is easy to cut and sand, and the finished project comes out looking professional. This panel will go on my twenty foot open cockpit walk around boat. This is the fifth project that I have used King StarBoard® and now one more for the port side. Thanks for the product and your help!

With King StarBoard® you quickly realize the applications are limitless!
