A selection of the most widely used and preferred finishing options
Finishing refers to the possibility to shape and design structural core materials to suit application needs, whether related to processing, design, weight or surface finishing, for instance.
The benefits of choosing a suitable finishing option include cost-effectiveness and efficiency in creating curvature as well as the elimination of the need for external flow media.
The choice of finishing depends on:
