Formica Corporation is a leading manufacturer of decorative high pressure laminate and surfacing materials. Our product offer is comprehensive, varied and of exceptional quality. High-quality Formica® laminate is among the most versatile of surfacing materials, providing an unbeatable low maintenance, durable and dependable surface that will continue to look good for years. It has potential for a huge variety of applications - such as worktops, wall linings, doors, cubicles and lockers - in many contexts, whether in the home, at work, in shops and offices, in private places or in public spaces. This familiar high pressure laminate is constructed from surface layers of melamine resin-impregnated décor papers with core layers of phenolic resin-impregnated kraft paper; these are pressed simultaneously under high pressure and heat to produce a high performance decorative surfacing material. High pressure laminate is available in several surface finishes, grades and sheet sizes, and comes in a variety of Woodgrains, Plain Colours and Patterns. Many of these designs are also available as Compact Grade, an impressively strong and damage resistant laminate with remarkable structural stability. New to the market for 2005 is our exciting development of Digital images, offering customers greater flexibility and the opportunity to create customised laminates. Special products of outstanding quality and appeal are characteristic of the Formica brand. To see the possibilities in our Special Products look, for example, at Veneers, Metallics, ColorCore or Solid Surfacing in The Collection. In addition to its extensive manufacturing activity, Formica Corporation licenses third party manufacturers to produce a variety of components and full structural systems that incorporate Formica surfacing materials. These products include wall linings and shower panels, partitions and ducts, cubicle systems, worktops, adaptable furniture and construction elements, doors, flooring and ceiling materials, and exterior surfacing.
