Norplex-Micarta manufactures UltreX canvas and burlap Micarta. Micarta is a widely used laminate commonly seen in industries pertaining to the knife and gun market. It has increasingly grown in popularity due to its durability and easy-to-grip features. Canvas Micarta’s substrate fibers are larger and can be significantly larger when using burlap compared to linen Micarta products. Canvas and burlap laminated sheets consist of thermosetting resins blended with canvas cloth. The combined materials are then pressed together under high heat and pressure. The end result is a thick, durable material that can be fabricated into various shapes and sizes, commonly seen in knife handles and gun grips. This easy-to-fabricate material can be cut, drilled, taped, and machined into virtually any shape you deem necessary. It is precisely for this reason Micarta is so popular in the manufacturing industry.
