Flexible natural shell surface covering

Flexipane is a seamless surface covering made of natural shells popularly known as Capiz. The shells are made soft and flexible after undergoing a special mechanical process. This surface covering includes uses such as architectural woodwork, furniture, interior paneling, countertops and other interior applications in which wood products are traditionally used. Moreover, unlike typical surface coverings made of shells that are usually hard, Flexipane is characteristically soft and flexible—allowing easier installation on curved or rounded surfaces.
