The Q4 system is a high density polyester resin with ivory grain structure that was originally developed for making 4 cue stick parts - hence its name of Q4.
This material has been tested by top knife makers who have been very impressed with this new material. This is not the Resin Ivory we have sold for years. We realized that our resin material needed to be improved and after a good deal of work we have this new and much improved high density resin. This is 25% more dense than our old resin and it is much stronger and tougher.
A) New color - this is white and it has grain.
B) Great strength and added density.
C) Works beautifully and accepts all common finishes used in the knife trade including high gloss by buffing.
D) Glues very well with quality epoxy. West System epoxy was used in the initial testing and it bonded very well. There are no bonding issues.
