Resin-Ivory™ R grade Imitation ivory for cue stick butt caps. Resin-Ivory™ is the highest quality imitation ivory we have seen,worked or handled - ever. Arvorin and other alternative ivories are made as a spun polyester but Resin Ivory™ is a resin based material that has greater strength and better properties for cue stick making. The others will shatter when dropped on the floor - Resin Ivory will not.
The R (Regular) grade Resin-Ivory™ is for ferrules, joints and butt caps. The Resin-Ivory+S™ grade has the Shreger lines in the end grain - hence the +S designation. The Shreger lines are those forming the herringbone pattern as seen in the end grain view of real ivory. Glues to wood with white glue and to other materials with super glue or epoxy.
This regular grade Resin-Ivory™ has an attractive grain that looks like real ivory. As one turns a cue in one's hand this imitation ivory shows side grain, flat grain and then back to side grain again. This material flouresces purple under a black light so customs agents will be able to discern it from real ivory without a problem. Glues to wood with white glue and to other materials with super glue or epoxy. Does not chip if using new or newly sharpened tools.
