Aegis II™ Tube
Aegis II™ is a Linen Melamine based thermoset plastic ferrule, joint and butt material. It is linen rolled and molded for high strength. It bonds well with Epoxy, Cyanoacrylate, and wood glues. Machines well, and the color varies from soft white to Ivory. Sold per foot- Available in 3' foot lengths.
Please note that the industry standard when manufacturing this material, for the tube lengths, is +/- 2" inches.
Thermoset materials were originally developed as strong, inexpensive alternatives to metals for industrial applications (i.e. washers, insulators, bushings). For these types of industrial applications characteristics such as color and cleanliness are less critical. Therefore, the manufacturing process for thermosets does not adjust easily to control such factors. We have made enormous efforts to control these characteristics when manufacturing thermoset materials for the billiard industry, however, despite our best efforts you may discover some inconsistencies. Such inconsistencies are unavoidable and should be considered part of the cost of working with these materials.
