Black & OD Green G10 (used to be listed black&green)
*NOTE: If you purchase 12"x12" Or 12"x24" Sheet there could be a lead time depending on In Stock Quantities.
We had this Black G10 custom made for us. The difference between Micarta and G10 is: Micarta is a high pressure laminate that (often) uses linen or canvas based fiber. G10 is an epoxy based high pressure laminate that used glass mat (think fiber glass) for the fiber base. G10 is tougher and more water resistant than Micarta.
Tip: I buffed this sample piece first with black compound and it darkened the black layers. I then followed with a green chrome and it really polished it up nicely. This is a 120 grit and then buffed. If you sand it with a finer grit, you will get an even better finish.
Tip: This is glass based. Wear a respirator. Wear gloves when you are cutting it too. After cutting a bunch of it, I can feel several dozen little prickly glass threads in my hands.
Another tip: In the picture you will see the buffed finish (black) and the raw finish. The raw finish actually looks fairly good and in this case was sanded to 120 grit. Nothing wrong with leaving it raw like this.
