Neatflex has a unique construction that enables it to be quickly formed into strong, smooth custom curved surfaces with less weight than other techniques.
Neatflex can be combined with itself, Neatform Bendy MDF, plywood or laminate to create frameless free-form curves.
Neatflex is speedy and a simple way to make inspirational curved surfaces.
In addition to frameless techniques, Neatflex can be used with a traditional frame to create robust curves.
Neatflex Product Specification
Neatflex has a 4mm (5/32") S - Grade Birch plywood face bonded to a 15mm MDF Lite platform. It comes in 1220 (48") x 2440mm (96") Cross Cut / Cross Grain sheets with un-grooved border edges, approximately 40mm wide on the two edges running parallel with the grooves.
The typical minimum bending radius obtainable using Neatflex is 300mm (12"). If a tighter radius is required it is best to use Neatform Bendy MDF which has a minimum bending radius of 150mm (6"). Bending capabilities of Neatform and Neatflex may vary with the moisture content and temperature and, because it is manufactured from natural raw materials, it may vary slightly from one batch to another.
WATER & FIRE RESISTANCE
Neatflex is not made from fire resistant MDF nor is it recommended for wet applications.
Neatflex should be acclimatised the same as the surfacing material, adhesives, paints or lacquers to be used.

The bending characteristics of Neatflex and other materials such as laminate vary with temperature. Care must be taken, especially in cool conditions, that the materials do not become to brittle to work with.
Because of the wood grain face, laying up with veneer prior to bending is not recommended.
Care should taken when handling Neatflex. The size, weight and flexibility of a full sheet will generally require two people to ensure that the material is not over-flexed or broken.
Neatflex should be stored flat in such a way that both surfaces are protected. Store in a dry area and avoid direct contact with the floor.
