Cheap Laser-engraveable Modeling Material
from Friendswood, Texas
Comments about All-Purpose Chipboard:
I bought the chipboard after reading about a model railroad structure builder using the material as a substrate for tiny basswood strips. My goal was to use it for laser engraving and cutting and as a replacement for the difficult to obtain 1.5 mm MDF which comes from the United Kingdom. While the board does not have the bend-resistance of the MDF, it is more than adequate for building scale models. Reinforcement can be added to the backside of modeled components if necessary, to alleviate unwanted bending.The material is very dense and is obviously a recycled (and very green) product. I used it in my laser engraver and it worked very well, although the power settings need to be higher than for materials of the same thickness such as Taskboard. Confirming the recycled nature of the product were minute flashes caused by the laser beam striking tiny, micro-thin pieces of aluminum. These micro shards are way too small to cause any problems in fabrication or usage. I am continuing to find new uses for the product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Perfect for making a boardgame board!
from Lancaster, PA
I searched for a while both locally and online to find chipboard thick enough to make a board for a boardgame I am working on. This chipboard is perfect, it's thick and not too difficult to cut with a rotary cutter! I would definitely buy it again.

Needed firm tagboard, paint-able, staple-able
I needed some tagboard that was paintable, stable-able, as part of a rough construction project. This chipboard was perfect. 1/16 inch thick, tough, it won't bend and break. Need a power saw to cut, though, this isn't kids poster board.I feel lucky to have found this site with these products.
Great for book covers
from Brentwood, CA
This is the best chipboard I have found for making book covers. It's sturdy and doesn't warp when paper or cloth is glued to the surface.
from Greenbelt, MD
I thought this was a great deal - the sheets are large enough that you can use them for a variety of projects. Cuts nicely. Product was packaged well and sheets arrived undamaged.
