Richlite is an incredibly dense, durable, and highly sustainable material made from resin-infused paper. Originally developed over 70 years ago for industrial tooling and pattern making, Richlite has expanded into a premium surface material used in the aerospace, marine, culinary, and architecture industries, as well as in the musical instrument world in the making of tuning pegs, tailpieces, fingerboards, and more. Handmade from many layers of high quality custom craft paper, the composite material is composed of approximately 65% FSC®-certified or recycled paper content and 35% phenolic resin. With its smooth, natural aesthetic, Richlite is an excellent substitute for endangered ebony wood.
Uses: Tailpieces, Pegs, Chinrests, Endpin, Fingerboards, Saddles, Nuts, Guitar Bridges.
