Embossed wood grain is typically applied to PVC and wood-composite profi les with 12-in.-diam. rollers and a 36-in. repeat. Standex Engraving LLC in Sandston, Va., introduced a new, non-repeating embossing technology at the Plast-Ex show in Toronto in May, which creates an endless, non-diagonal wood grain pattern, closer to natural wood. The fi rst Forever-Wood Grain embosser was installed in January to make wood-composite decking. A second installation in June will emboss wall board. Grain patterns can be designed up to 48 in. wide for all four sides of a profi le. Tel: (804) 222-2821 . www.standexengraving.com
