Another Name for Juma? - 06-02-2019, 11:58 AM

Anyone have a generic name for Juma? I know it is a thermoplastic but not sure if it is polyethylene or another plastic.

Unlike many plastics we use in cue making that are borrowed from other industries & given a new name, I believe Juma is uniquely its own. Only one manufacturer and they only call it Juma.

That my very well be what the manufacturer calls it, but it would likely still be identifiable by it's actual composition. That information however is likely proprietary. My apologies for the intrusion.

The mix ratio is proprietary.
Darryn Hill claimed he told them to add more epoxy after he was sent some samples.

In the plastics world, the cue industry is just a dot in the universe.
It's a miracle Juma or T-34 are even being made.
But Juma is also now a popular knife handle material.

Agreed. When I was searching for the material for Project Tomahawk, it was a miracle that I found one particular company that was initially willing to deal with me. I was just a tiny niche blip in their world. When I turned the material over to Kelly Peterson, I was thrilled they agreed to continue supplying to him.

I discovered, as mentioned in an earlier post, that it is manufactured in Germany by one company. AS far as I know, Atlas is the main supplier in the U.S. It is available from some knife supply folks but Haven't seen it in .125 thickness, yet.

I have not found anything else that is close in appearance except elforyn and Avorin. Obviously, they have their own properties and are quite different from Juma.

I contacted a number of companies in the U. S. but nothing available.

Other than looks what makes Elforyn quite different from Juma?

And you have to fork up a good chunk to get it started.
