interior endcaps

Has anyone use Formica as a segmented endcap in lieu of aluminum or wood?
Just thinking out loud.

Formica is very brittle when not adhered to a substrate. Attaching it with Rivets or screws would most likely be unsuccessful.

On the contrary. Best to ask and receive sound advice, rather than making a poor material choice. That is what this forum is about.

Here are a few more possibilities....

https://www.renolit.com/design/en/br...-applications/

OR, you can vinyl wrap your end cap with any type of bendable heatable film......how about a leather look, or chrome?

Below was quoted from a vinyl wrap supplier page.

Can the Vinyl Wraps film be installed on plastic or ABS plastics?

Yes. Vinyl Wraps are made made from premium vinyl films and can be applied to plastic or polycarbonates.

Many different options, and very glad this thread made me research some of them as I'll be doing mine one day.

Cheers

Has anyone covered their end-caps with fabric? It would need to be hot-glued on.
