Resin-Ivory™ R grade Imitation ivory for cue stick ferrules, joints and 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 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.
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 you use new or newly sharpened tools.
