New Materials Naming Guide

As a part of our new and improved materials experience, we have made several updates to the names of our materials.  We believe these new names better represent the end value and hope these will help you choose the best material for your next project.  

For a full list of changes see below:

(Any of our materials and/or finishes that are not listed below will remain with current names)

Don’t worry!  We’ll keep the old names listed on our material pages so that you can quickly and easily reference the materials you know and love.  If you are a shop owner, the new names will also be visible in your shop.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to our customer service team.
