PaperStone is made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper and our proprietary PetroFree phenolic resins. It’s unique beauty, functionality and reliability offers an exciting alternative to more traditional solid surfaces. Using pigments rather than dyes assures superior color stability and UV resistance as well as even color distribution throughout the entire panel. PaperStone is certified to Forest Stewardship Council Standards by the Smartwood program of the Rainforest Alliance.
Phenolic resin and paper composites have long been known to have superior tensile, compression, impact and flexural strengths. They are long lasting, abrasion resistant, absorb virtually no water and are the products of choice in application requiring high fire resistance. PaperStone has a class A fire rating.
Additional PaperStone advantages:
- Mechanical Attachments stay secure
- Remains structurally rigid and sound in both vertical and horizontal applications
- Can be fabricated and installed using traditional woodworking tools with high quality carbide-tipped blades
- Creative edge details can be achieved with traditional tooling
- Properly bonded seams remain tight and inconspicuous
PaperStone’s Pricing is comparable to quality granite, brand name solid surface or engineered quartz materials. The ease and efficiency of PaperStone’s fabrication and finish often saves on installation costs, making installed project pricing lower.
To enhance the rich luster of PaperStone, we recommend PaperStone Finish or other high quality finishes for hardwood.
