We recommend TCT bladed circular saws, they cut well with minimal friction. We can recommend the DeWalt 1206 TCT and the Evolution Fury TCT blades. There is little or no breakout when using these saw blades. EcoSheet produces a plastic swarf when cut.
EcoSheet drills well with most drill bits, but we recommend HSS bits especially. Wood bits also give a good result. Holes are best cut by wood spade cutters. Pilot holes are not needed. EcoSheet can be countersunk, although this is not usually needed with posi-screws.
For a good colour match to standard EcoSheet we can recommend Isopon Bumper Fill from Halfords. Products such as Ultima Plastic Padding and Isopon P38 also worked well.The only wood filler that worked was Ronseal High Performance wood filler.
EcoSheet can be CNC routed, using a tungsten carbide head.
EcoSheet can be edge-banded.
EcoSheet can be profiled, although remember that the structure of the panel means that the strength is in the skin and the core is foamed, and will not give a smooth edge.
High Pressure Laminates (HPL) can be bonded to the face using Bostik Aquaseal 29952.
We recommend Loctite 3038 for general fabrication work. Sikaflex 552 will bond when used on the face.
Self tapping posi screws take and hold well without pilot holes.
Round wires and ring shanks work well. Nail guns can be used provided they are set to a 'flush' setting and you are fixing the EcoSheet board into timber.
