CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Formica Corporation, the inventor of laminate, introduces Formica Envision™, the latest product to capitalize on laminate’s limitless design potential by turning high-resolution images into captivating wall panels, doors, countertops or any surface on which a designer would use Formica® high pressure laminate or Formica® Compact™.
“Laminate has long been celebrated for its design freedom as interior designers have the ability to mix and match hundreds of colors and patterns to create a unique aesthetic”
“Laminate has long been celebrated for its design freedom as interior designers have the ability to mix and match hundreds of colors and patterns to create a unique aesthetic,” shared Amy Gath, vice president of marketing at Formica Corporation. “Formica Envision™ takes this design freedom to a whole new level by giving designers a durable and affordable ‘blank canvas’ on which to replicate artwork, photography and graphics with unprecedented clarity.”
Through a CMYK digital printing process, Formica Envision™ achieves perfect registration of color, 100 percent consistency and less dot grain, precisely replicating a high-resolution image. A technology employed by other regions of Formica Group around the globe, customers in North America can now use custom laminate to drive a branding or décor message.
Formica Envision™ is available in both standard grade laminate and Formica® Compact™ structural laminate. A thicker laminate requiring no substrate support, Compact™ has a decorative face on both sides and is ideal for areas exposed to high humidity and high impact. Formica Envision™ is available with a minimum order of one sheet.
“Laminate is one of the most prevalent surfacing materials on the market, and Formica Envision™ extends our value proposition to the architecture and design community by embracing originality,” Gath added.
Formica Envision™ is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) certified and is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® by the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute under the GREENGUARD Standard for Low-Emitting Products, including the requirements for Children and Schools.
