Product Spotlight: PaperStone

July 12, 2012 · 1 comment

In Monday’s post, I took you through a little summary of the Solar Decathlon. If you missed it, be sure to check out my post.While touring through one home, I couldn’t help myself but stop and stare at the kitchen. I am always hunting and hunting for new products to try especially when it comes to kitchen countertops. After a little discussion with one team member, I learned that the countertop was a product called PaperStone. PaperStone® is made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper that has been saturated with our proprietary PetroFree™ phenolic resins and selected natural pigments on our treater lines. Really? Yes! After installation, the product looks very similar to a poured concrete.

‘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.’



Some important features about PaperStone® include:

  • non-porous surface means it is stain resistant
  • Surface cuts may be sanded out
  • heat resistant to 350 degrees
  • LEED certified product
  • Ideal for restaurant food prep surfaces, conference tabletops, signs and plaques, window sills, cutting boards, cutlery handles, furniture, restroom partitions, cabinets, indoor and outdoor (RainStone™) wall cladding
  • emits no radon gases and is VOC free

I love how clean these countertops look. The solid look is a favorite of mine. Would you like to install a PaperStone® countertop in your home? I know I would! If you are interested in learning more about this product, leave a comment below!
