Q4™ Advanced & Complete Imitation Ivory Cue System.
Seen in the above photo are the three grades of Resin ivory we make. The one on the left is Q4. The center one is our +S Grade Resin ivory and the one on the right is our R Grade Resin Ivory.
The Q4™ system is a high density polyester resin with ivory grain structure that works for all 4 of the original applications where real ivory was used in cues back in the day.
3) Butt Caps.
4) Inlay Material.
This material has been tested by top cue 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 for the cue trade 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. Our Resin Ivory material has a density of 1.2g /cm3 whereas Q4 has a density of 1.6g/cm3.
A) New color - this is white and it has grain. All of your round stock and inlays will color and grain match.
B) Great hit with powerful impact resiliency and superior strength. No chalking. Burnishes to the degree of polish desired from matte to high gloss on ferrules.
C) Machines beautifully for any part needed and accepts all common finishes used in the cue industry.
D) Holds up to the abuse of players.
E) Clean cut-outs on inlay stock.
F) 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.
Available in ferrule, joint, and butt diameter rod stock along with slabs for inlay and point square stock.
