|Construction:||PaperStone® is made from FSC® certified Recycled and FSC® certified Mix post-consumer recycled paper and that has been saturated with our proprietary phenolic resins and selected natural pigments on our treater 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.|
|Installation Method:||As with any quality countertop installation, a high level of precision is required during both the templating and installation processes. However, PaperStone® lessens the load because it is easily worked using traditional high-quality carbide-tipped woodworking tools. No special fabrication equipment is necessary as is the case with quartz or granite. And a wide variety of edge profiles can be achieved with a router. This may result in savings during the installation process as compared to the cost of installing other materials. Because of PaperStone’s rigidity and strength-of-span, it can be cantilevered an impressive distance without deflection.
