G10 round rods for decoration.
G10 round rods Ø6 mm (0.24in) for making colourful decorative inserts in knives handles or other everyday objects. Rot-proof, non-conductive and insensitive to humidity, the G10 composite material brings an original colour touch to all your creations.
An ultra modern composite material.
Composite materials are the result of a heterogeneous assembly of two or more components which do not mix, but which, through a high degree of interpenetration, form a new material with mechanical properties that the elements of the assembly do not have on their own.
G10 is a woven fibreglass and epoxy resin assembly that is hot-moulded under pressure.
Its properties make it a material of choice, particularly in cutlery for the manufacture of handles, decorative inserts or even... blades!
- Easy to work with.
- Lightweight and extremely strong.
- Electrically and thermally insulating.
- Insensitive to moisture and chemicals.
Coloured in the mass, our G10 round rods are available in 6 colours to give free rein to your creativity.
Did you know?
Composite materials began to be developed for industry in the 20th century.
As industrial development became more and more demanding, chemists and scientists devised extremely complex assemblies to meet the challenges of cutting-edge technologies such as aerospace, car manufacturing or information and communication technologies.
These materials, which have long been tested and proven under extreme conditions, have proven their worth and have been adopted, to our great satisfaction, in more common fields, closer to home, notably in cutlery.
As modern as composite materials are, their invention is not as recent as that.
Indeed, materials that aggregate different components into a new, stronger one were in use long before antiquity, long before the modern term "composite" was invented.
One of the best-known ancient "composite" materials is "cob", an assembly of water, clay and plant or animal fibres (straw, hay, horsehair, etc.).
This material, widely used in construction, became resistant after drying and can still be found today in the beautiful old half-timbered houses.
Finally, as nature always does things well, there are also natural composite materials such as... bone and wood!
Historical uses of G10.
Initially developed for the aeronautical industry, G10 quickly conquered, thanks to its exceptional resistance qualities, entire sectors of modern industry for, for example, products as diverse as windsurfing fins and firearm stocks.
Easy to work with, moulded in different shapes and thicknesses, coloured in a variety of colours, its insulating qualities also make it appreciated in electrical and computer constructions.
Highly prized in cutlery, Eurotechni offers G10 round rods for original decoration of knives, but also in sheets and plates for the manufacture of handles.
How to use G10 round rods ?
Very easy to work with, G10 round rods are mainly used in cutlery for decorating handles or to mask rivets or assembly screws.
Instructions for use :
- Make a shallow hole in the handle to the diameter of the round G10 Rods.
- Blow out and clean the hole well to remove any dust or shavings.
- Take the round G10 rod and "wipe" it gently with very fine sandpaper and by hand to make it slightly rough.
- The rod to be inserted should be very slightly smaller in diameter than the hole diameter so that it can be pressed in but without excessive stress.
- Insert the rod by gently tapping with a small hammer until it is fully inserted.
- Cut the G10 rod flush with the handle using a fine-toothed saw.
- Sand and polish as normal.
The assembly can be done with glue or resin for a very good hold.
However, for a perfect assembly that is just as resistant and without the risk of seeing a small thickness of glue or resin, a "dry" assembly is preferable, provided that the diameter of the shaft is perfectly adapted to the diameter of the hole.
To facilitate the insertion of the rod, some knife fitters lightly coat the perimeter of the rod with a little dry Marseille soap or paraffin.
With a lot of creativity, some knifemakers succeed in making roundels, for example, by inserting hollow carbon fibre rods into the handle and, inside, G10 round rods inserts of different colours.
Result and spectacular effect guaranteed!
