WHAT IS IT MADE OF?
Flexible molding is a polyester resin based product.
The material feels similar to the side wall of a car tire.
All moldings are made to a specified curve or radius.

HOW DO I FINISH IT?

PAINTING
No primer coats are needed
Most standard paints are compatible.

STAINING
Thin, watery or mainly solvent base stains will not work well. If you must stain the
molding, be sure to use a heavily pigmented oil base stain, gel stain or artist oil.
You can also mix tints or stains into a clear glazing liquid available at most paint stores.
Wipe or brush stain to desired color and apply a clear top coat finish.

IS FLEXIBLE CROWN MOLDING TEMPERATURE SENSITIVE?
Flexible moldings are a polyester resin based product and are less flexible
 when stored at low temperatures. Improper flexing of the material
below 56 degrees F may cause breakage.
Before installing allow molding to reach room temperature
somewhere between 60-80 degrees F. for 24 hours.

MOUNTING MOLDING TO THE WALL
Can flexible moldings be nailed and glued like regular wood moldings?
Yes, pneumatic pin nailers work well and even better when nails end are
ground blunt and not pointed. Nails should be kept 6" apart and 3/8" for any edge.
Pre-drilling is not necessary when using #6 or smaller finish nails.
Some installers use only glue adhesives and no nails at all.
Creative Crown adhesives do the job well when no nails are used.

MORE INFOMATION
Flexible moldings be cut, shaped or sanded like wood moldings?
Yes, flexible moldings can be cut, shaped or sanded using
standard wood working equipment.

Flexible molding gives the appearance of real wood.
It is moisture and insect proof. It can withstand extreme heat and cold temperatures without
warping, cracking or deteriorating.

Why are  flexible crown moldings custom made?

Flexible crown moldings can't be bought off of a warehouse shelf.
Please look at the examples below to know why.
All flexible crown moldings should be custom made to fit the radius of a wall.

Outside curved wall

Here is an example of a curved outside wall.
Notice that the molding would have to notched out
to bend around the outside curve.
There would not be enough material to
to go around the curved wall.

Inside curved wall

Here is an example of a inside curved wall.
Notice that the molding would have to notched
out because there would be to much material
 to mount it flush against the wall.

How to order crown flexible molding to match a curve or radius wall
You will need to order your molding preformed to match your curved or radius wall.

HOW IS IT MADE?
Flexible molding is made in a silicone rubber mold that is precurved to meet you radius
or curved wall. When received it will come in a box and look like a rolled up fire hose.
When you unroll the molding it will have a curve in it. When you install it on the ceiling
it will form into place like the radius or curve of the wall.
