ZzzFlex, although more expensive than straight wood moulding, is far less expensive than curved wood. If straight sections are involved, it is usually best to select a moulding style that can be obtained locally in wood. Due to the cost of shipping, we do not offer straight wood moulding. Most flexible mouldings in our catalog have corresponding "Full Size" PDF (Adobe Acrobat) drawings that can be printed for accurate matching to your wood mouldings.

HOW FLEXIBLE IS IT?
Flexibility depends on the mouldings width and thickness. Large, thick mouldings (over 1 inch thick) will be much stiffer than a thin moulding (1/2 inch thick).
The minimum radius that can be achieved is usually about 3 times the width of the moulding with a recommended minimum of 4 inches.

CAN I USE IT OUTSIDE?
YES, ZzzFlex and Flex Trim are impervious to moisture and insects and will not rot or warp.
CAN I STAIN IT?
YES, Some mouldings are available in various wood grain patterns. This means that they have a wood grain texture embossed in the surface of the moulding. If a thick stain is applied, the wood grain will appear. For best results, gelled stains are recommended.
Available wood grain patterns vary and are listed with each item.

DOES IT COME IN DIFFERENT COLORS?
Like wood moulding, flexible moulding is intended to be painted (or stained in the case of stainable grade). Material that is not painted or stained will darken over time. Prior to painting (or staining) the material is an off white color. Click this topic for painting and staining tips.
CAN I MACHINE IT?
YES, ZzzFlex and Flex Trim can be machined. Several shallow passes are recommended. Manufacturing moulding profiles from blanks is not recommended as it is too hard on moulding equipment.
WHAT IS IT MADE OF?
ZzzFlex and Flex Trim are composites formulated especally for the building industry. They are unique in that they have a hard surface resembling wood, yet are flexible. ZzzFlex is a composite elastomer with unmatched flexiblity even in the cold. Strong yet pliable. Choose ZzzFlex for the tough jobs or when only the best will do.
Flex Trim, the industry standard to which all others are measured is an excellant choice for most applications.
ZzzFlex and Flex Trim are NOT PVC plastic nor are they a "styrofoam"
They are NOT wood and contain no wood products yet stain grade versions can be stained like wood (see "can I stain it").
