How is it best used:
While we mostly deliver PaperStone recycled paper countertops, we recommend PaperStone for a wide variety of interior horizontal and vertical applications such as counters for kitchens, reception desks, window sills and door thresholds. We also recommend PaperStone for structural applications, landscape components, furniture, table tops and other manufactured products. When i mentioned vertical applications I was thinking of toilet partitions, interior and exterior paneling, exterior cabinet work, and chair rail.
PaperStone is also an excellent choice for rain-screen.
PaperStone is available in both Certified and Original series colors in standard panel sizes 60″ x 144″ in standard thicknesses of 3/4″, 1″ and 1-1/4″. But 1/2 slab and 1/4 slab sizes are available as are custom thicknesses.
Solid Color Panels
The PaperStone recycled paper, original colors – continue to be a customer favorite for their versatility and attractiveness. Made from 100-percent recycled paper and petroleum-free phenolic resin, the traditional rich colors are solid throughout, including the edges. Although most commonly used for kitchen and bath countertops as well as commercial surfaces, wall cladding and partitions, Solid Color Panels are easy to work with for a variety of applications where wood is used, including tools and implements. The UL Class A fire rating and food-safe certification by the National Sanitary Foundation further expand its uses. A 100-percent made in the U.S. green product, PaperStone’s Solid Color Panels are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, earning points in the LEED green building program.
Designer Series Panels
Especially designed in response to customers’ desires for lighter colored panels, the FSC-certified Designer Series Panels consist of alternating 90-percent recycled melamine and 100-percent recycled phenolic saturated papers. This formula maintains the durability and workability of the panels while achieving a fresh, lighter look. It also results in a product with greater UV resistance and an edge profile that adds an attractive designer element. The primary use for the Designer Series Panels is for horizontal and vertical residential and commercial architectural surfaces, such as countertops, wall cladding, partitions and much more. Manufactured in the U.S., the Designer Series Panels are also UL Class A fire rated for both flame spread and smoke development.
