Installation & Finishing Tips

1. ALWAYS lay out the material to let it relax back into its original shape, this is a good time to double check the molding style and application. 2.  NEVER pre-finish the material prior to installation. The material may flex during installation and cause fractures in the finish. 3.   ALWAYS make certain that the surface you are applying the material to is flat and smooth. Flexible molding will follow any irregularities in the surface. 4.    NEVER use staples or nails with large heads. Keep nails to a minimum and away from edges to avoid "bumps" at the edge.

5.   ALWAYS use a construction adhesive in conjunction with (or in lieu of) nails or screws.  This will ensure a quick and easy application and a cleaner finished look.

Flex Trim Flexible Moldings - Cutting Tip

  • Flex Trim moldings can be cut, sanded and shaped using typical woodworking tools.
  • Hold material firmly to table or fence when cutting.
  • Cut material long and then shave to exact length.
  • When shaping, use several "shallow" passes rather than one "deep" cut.
  • Do not sand or shape the wood grain on stain grade material.
Flex Trim Flexible Moldings - Fastening Tip
  • Pre-determine material placement and layout.
  • Use construction adhesive.
  • Use our No-Nail(R) Adhesive for instant bonding.
  • Keep nails and screws to a minimum.
  • Keep nails and screws away from edges to prevent bumps at edges.
Flex Trim Flexible Moldings - Painting Tip
  • Clean material before painting.
  • A primer coat is recommended but not required.
  • Never paint before installation.  The material is flexible and the paint may crack during installation.
  • All paints work well.

Flex Trim Flexible Mouldings - Staining Tip

  • Wood grain material appearance can be affected if the surface is scratched, sanded or altered.
  • Never stain before installation.  Flexing of the material during installation may damage the stain.
  • Clean material thoroughly before staining.
  • Mask off surrounding areas.
  • Heavy stains such as "gelled stains", work best.
  • Clear coat after staining.

Staining Instructions:

  

Staining Flex Trim products is similar to staining wood. Most stains work well however, use of thicker heavily pigmented stains is recommended. Thinner stains may require multiple coats. Staining flexible moldings prior to installation is not recommended as the stain may crack when the molding is flexed.

  1. Before Painting or staining be sure the material is clean and free of dirt and oils. Clean with paint thinner or soap and water if needed.
  2. Mask off any adjacent non-stain areas.
  3. Apply the stain with a brush covering the entire surface of the material, especially in any deep grooves or crevices that may exist.
  4. Wipe off majority of excess stain with a soft, clean, dry rag.
  5. Wipe off remaining excess stain with a brush.
  6. Clear coat with lacquer, polyurethane or varnish using spray equipment. Applying clear coats with a brush may remove stain.

Painting Instructions:

Painting Flex Trim is easier than painting wood. Flex Trim moldings require no priming or sanding prior to painting. Painting flexible moldings prior to installation is not recommended as the paint may crack when the molding is flexed.

  1. Before Painting or staining be sure the material is clean and free of dirt and oils. Clean with paint thinner or soap and water if needed.
  2. Fill and sand all nail or screw holes.
  3. Mask off any adjacent areas. Priming prior to painting will improve finish luster but is not required.
  4. Apply the paint with a brush or spray equipment covering the entire surface of the material, especially in any deep grooves or crevices that may exist.
  5. Add additional coats as desired.

Fastening Instructions:

Pre-determine placement and layout prior to fastening molding into place. Use of construction adhesive in addition to nails or screws is recommended due to the flexible nature of the material. Failure to adequately adhere flexible molding may result in sags between fastening points. All standard methods of fastening work well with Flex Trim flexible moldings.

Cutting Instructions:

Flex Trim may be cut using the same tools and equipment and in the same manner as wood. Before cutting to length, make sure the material is held firmly against the saw table or fence. Place a backing (such as a piece of wood) directly behind the cutting area. Always cut the material a little long and shave to exact length.

When ripping Flex Trim on a table saw make sure the material will stay firmly against the fence during the cut and that it can be fed easily and continuously.

Machining Instructions:

It is possible to machine shape Flex Trim flexible moldings. When machining flexible molding the material must be securely held to the fence, guide or holder especially at the beginning of the cut, when the material first enters the machine cutter. Always make several small incremental cuts rather than one large one.

Machining of stain grade material will remove the grain texture from the cut surface.

Exterior Applications:

Flex Trim is not affected by salt, moisture, heat or extreme cold. Many builders and homeowners have selected Flextrim to replace even straight exterior moldings  because of it's durability in the harshest environments.
