How we improve your products
Raffir is taking a new approach to material design. Everyday we strive to take something traditional and practical and turn it into an art form.
Usually our costumers already make very appealing quality products, both as fine crafts and industrial high-end goods. So at first we have to ask ourselves: How can Raffir materials help our customers make even better products? Surely, they have to stand out from all the rest. They have to be more special, more beautiful, have a better story – simply be more appealing to the customers. All that while still meeting the requirements for strength, durability, machinability and safety.
This leads us to a whole variety of new materials. Every time we start a new project we want to create something original. To help us do that we even create entirely new manufacturing methods. Careful selection is another way of insuring a high quality. Therefore we use a lot of efforts on product development. Actually, for every product we put on the market there are about 10 more on our R&D shelves. And every time we launch a new product we set the bar a little bit higher. Thereby we ensure better and better products for our customers.
Our Product Range
We offer products in three main categories: Raffir Fossils and Raffir Composites. Raffir Wood is stabilized fine-grained wood. The stabilization process is a specially developed high-pressure resin treatment. After this process the material is stronger, more durable and obtains deeper grain patterns. Our Raffir Fossils are real ice age mammoth fossils that are preserved with a similar process. These rare and special materials are made useful with the stabilization process. Finally, Raffir Composites are plant fibers or metals that are cast in a deep colored 3D resin matrix. The finished materials are hybrids with unique structures from the untreated material plus mechanical benefits from the durable resins.
Raffir material applications
Our materials are most often used for fine handles. Meanwhile, this is far from the only application. They are also used for accessories, jewelry, inlays, musical instruments, pool cues and fishing rods etc. Actually they work well in most small and medium-sized quality products. Use them where you want that extra edge to your products.
