PaperStone® is made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper that has been saturated with proprietary PetroFree™ phenolic resins and selected natural pigments on their pigmented lines. After trimming to length, resin-saturated sheets are stacked and moved into a press where they are fused together under heat and pressure. Paper sheet count determines the thickness of the finished panels.
PaperStone®’s non-porous surface provides a lifetime of stain resistance and it absorbs virtually no water. Surface cuts or mars may be sanded or rubbed out with an abrasive pad and treated with PaperStone® Finish. PaperStone® is extremely rigid and dense, lending to additional applications beyond counter tops such as furniture, vertical panels and partitions, signs and cutlery handles. Its superior strength allows innovative cantilevered designs up to 18-inches of unsupported overhang when using 3/4-inch material. It is heat resistant to 350°F and has been certified ‘food safe’ by NSF, the public health and safety company.
IceStone surfaces are high performance concrete slabs made from three core ingredients: 100% recycledglass, Portland cement, and non-toxic pigments. Slab content varies per color. IceStone surfaces are fabricated and installed much like a natural stone and can be used in both residential and commercial applications such as tabletops, transaction surfaces, cash wraps, work surfaces, bathroom vanities, counter tops and more.
Plyboo sheeting products are manufactured from 100% bamboo. Bamboo has been widely regarded as a sustainable building material for thousands of years. Being a grass, Bamboo is a rapidly renewable resource, maturing every 5-6 years and unlike traditional hardwoods does not require re-planting once harvested as its extensive root system continues to send up new shoots. Made from 100% rapidly renewable bamboo, harvested from the only FSC-certified bamboo forest in the world, the sheeting is available in its Original form or as FSC formaldehyde-free (PlybooPure). These products are widely used for cabinets, counter tops, furniture, and any other applications where wood may be used.
