Frame Method - Directions
1. Fabricate a framework with sufficient shaped
and supporting ribs to support a single skin of
For example – curved ribs would typically
be set at
350mm / 14” to 400mm / 16” centers.
2. Straight ribs used to support the curved ribs
should be set-back from the face of the curved
ribs to ensure they do not interfere with the
the Neatform to rough shape and offer up to the
framework to ensure a good fit. Position the Neatform
grooved face inwards unless making a feature of
the grooved surface.
4. Apply a good coat of PVA glue to mating surfaces
on the framework and Neatform, and finally position,
while noting that it is not necessary for the Neatform
grooves to be filled with glue. A paint roller is
an ideal tool for this job.
5. Either tack into position with hot melt adhesive
if access to the back face is available, or staple

to shape and finish in the normal way.
