Compound Dub-Plates.

Our Vinyl DubPlates are made of a very durable plastic compound giving them a lifespan similar to a pressed record, The audio is cut into the plastic on a lathe using a diamond cutting head. Most commonly known or used when cutting dub-plates (also known as lacquers) are acetate disks. An acetate dub-plate is, in fact, a metal disc covered in nitrocellulose lacquer.
The audio is cut into the lacquer on a lathe using a sapphire cutting head.

“What’s the difference”?

As the lacquer is a soft material, acetate dub-plates tend to have a shorter lifespan when compared to plastic material dub-plates, and a lot less than pressed vinyl.
