There is an ever-growing desire to make green design choices in our homes. Luckily, as interest has grown, so have our choices, from recycled glass and concrete to paper, agricultural by-products, seashells, reclaimed and FSC-certified woods and more.
|Richlite Stratum: Bamboo Embedded|
If concrete is not quite your look, Richlite may be the option for you. Richlite is a dense material made from recycled paper and phenolic resin, baked to create a solid sheet. In other words, Richlite is compressed paper, and yes, Richlite paper is recycled paper. The final product is exceptionally strong, yet maintains a warm and organic look. If durability is an important criteria for you, rest assured that Richlite is heat resistant up to 350°F and stain resistant.
Richlite has been used for industrial and marine purposes and as a skatepark surface for years and is SUPER durable. To quote it’s manufacturers, “The kitchen is Richlite’s least challenging environment.” Richlite can be a cost effective option for you if you are looking for a responsible material that will bring a natural warmth to your counter surfaces.
