A.L.V.S acrylic laminated shell veneer sheets were developed by Masecraft back in 2008 to be a cost effective alternative to L.V.S. or Abalam. We found after many years of trying, that it was simply not possible to create a synthetic material with the natural beauty of real shell. These sheets work like acrylic but have the look of real shell because they are a combination of both. This created not only a much more cost effective material but a beautiful new hybrid material that is part natural and part synthetic. Available in several types of shell, some sheets are also color enhanced. All sheets are size 5 1/2" x 9 1/2" and are available in thicknesses from .040"- 3/8".
