Lamalone is a similar product to Aba Lam and Shell "Lams." That is, it is a sheet of shell veneer  (MicroVeneer) laminated (or encased) in an organic polymer resin to a particular thickness.  This product is perfect for applications were strips of the Lamalone are cut, repeated heated (in 150 degree water) and bent to form a radius curve or a full circle (ring). It is very often used on Fishing Rods, Pool Cues and other applications were the veneer needs to be "wrapped" around a cylinder or cone shaped object or bent to match a given radius. Lamalone is a "Finished" product that is ready to cut, inlay, sand and polish. Lamalone, Flexalone, NacreLite or any Color Tinted product are all custom made products and are not returnable except in the case of Manufactor defects (more then 25 visiable micro bubbles or under thickness are examples of a returnable defect. Over thickness is not consider a defect but an update.

How is Lamalone different then Aba lam or other Shell "Lam" products?

 a. Lamalone is up to 150% cheaper then the other shell Lams products
    1. Green Abalone Aba lam in the (5"x9") in 0.05" thickness is over $130 plus shipping!!!
 
 b. Lamalone's veneer sheet is "floated" in its laminate
    1. "Floating" the  veneer (30% of lamination resin is on bottom and 70% on top) which
         allows the product to be heated in hot water (150 degrees) and it can be easily
         bent without the veneer cracking to match a radius or even into a complete circle
         (ring) for items like Fishing Rods and Pool Cues. Because of this technique, InlayUSA
         has been recently awarded a U.S. Patent for this production method.

   2. Most Shell "Lam" products are mounted on a fiberglass (with fiber cloth) backing with
       a urethane clear coat topping. Because of this, they become very rigid within 15
       days of being made and both the fiberglass base and attached veneer can crack and
       break during the bending process, but not Lamalone which uses a custom formulated
       organic polymer for encasement
