No-stick Filler Strip

About This Item

For easy abalone purfling installation!
The "slick" way to install abalone purfling strips.

Rout the ledges along the edge of the guitar, sandwich a no-stick strip between the bindings, and glue and tape them in place. When dry, pull out the no-stick strip and glue the purflings into the channel. Fast and easy!

The strip is .062" x .095" x 36" (1.68mm x 2.41mm x 914mm) and made of non-stick Teflon®.

Thickness not uniform

(Customer's Reviews)

The last strips I got were as thin as .058 and none more than .060. I did not measure and had to thin my strips to install the pearl. I will not order any more as it took way too long to do the inlay. I guess the sheets these were cut from were too thin from your supplier.


Filler strip

(Customer's Reviews)

An inexpensive invaluable aid in creating a uniform channel for the pearl



(Customer's Reviews)

I don't think I have never seen anything so roughly cut - expected to receive item with reasonably clean edges, but they look like a dog's breakfast! Will require more work than making them.


Works great

(Customer's Reviews)

This Teflon stripping work really really well for its intended job of temporary purfling filling to make way for shell. I also use it in rosette making to pull the bwb's tight around the shell. I also use it for various non stick CA glue jobs. Can be reused


Does what it says, but easily damaged

(Customer's Reviews)

This makes pearl installation a breeze, but I found that even though it does not adhere to glue, great care is required to remove it from the purfling channel without kinking. I might get two tops done with one before I have to replace it.
