Frameless Technique - Double Skin Method

Neatflex can be combined with itself, Neatform Bendy MDF, plywood or laminate to create frameless free form curves.

Example Applications
For fabricators who mainly work with bending plywood, the Neatflex double skin technique offers fantastic design and fabrication opportunities, whilst saving substantial amounts of time during fabrication and finishing.
Applications include display units, screens, display panels, shop fixtures, stage and film sets.

Features & Benefits
• Free-standing curved shapes
• Show surfaces on both sides
• From 20mm to 40mm thick


1. To create a free-standing curved shape with Neatflex, first bend the piece of Neatflex and the other material to the approximate shape (grooved face inwards), and roughly cut to size.
2. Lay both sheets flat and apply a good even coating of wood glue to the mating surfaces of both sheets, while noting that it is not necessary for the Neatflex grooves to be filled with glue. A paint roller is an ideal tool for this job.

Please note – contact adhesive should not be used with this method.

3. Place the two sheets together and bend to the finished shape.

4. While the glue is still wet, clamp into shape, applying moderate pressure to both faces to ensure a good bond, and leave to set. Follow the adhesive manufacturer's guidance on curing times.

5. When released the resulting Neatflex structure will retain its shape, ready for trimming and finishing.
