Vulcanized fibre source

Dr. StrangeloveVulcanized fibre source
LMC-Plasticsource makes a vulcanized fibre sheet  
called Dynos(tm) that is equivalent to NVF Forbon(tm).  
 
Both Dynos and Forbon commercial grades conform to the ASTM D-710 specification and their test numbers are usually within 5% of each other with Dynos holding a minor edge.  
 
I received two 8"x11" samples a couple years back. The Dynos looks good and cuts the same but has a harder-smoother finish than the NVF Forbon.

NVF commercial Forbon specs:

If I recall correctly, LMC wanted me to buy 4 big sheets at a time. Things may have changed in the last two years.
