CINCINNATI, OH – Formica Corp., the inventor of high pressure laminate and the first to pioneer large-scale laminate design, introduces another breakthrough in laminate with IdealEdge, decorative edges suitable for curved, clipped or 90-degree corner installations. Available in two versatile profiles – Ogee and Bullnose – IdealEdge transcends the customary limitations of laminate by eliminating flat edges and brown seams.

“Laminate has benefited from major innovations in the last few years that have revitalized the surfacing material; IdealEdge is yet another one of those breakthroughs,” said Brian LaDuke, senior director of marketing at Formica Corporation. “IdealEdge profiles are fabricated like a bevel edge, which allows for more installation flexibility, and have the ability to curve and encase all sides of countertops, islands and tables. IdealEdge eliminates the final telltale sign of laminate – the brown line.”

Available in hundreds of Formica Brand Laminate colors and patterns, IdealEdge profiles are produced in 12-foot lengths and are customizable to design specifications.

Formica Corporation continues to lead the industry with innovative designs and green building solutions. Formica Brand Laminate is available with FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification 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.

In addition to IdealEdge, Formica Corporation expands its 180fx Collection with five new lighter, more neutral options. The patterns feature the premium finish Etchings, a softly polished finish etched and dappled with highlights from tiny fissures reminiscent of those found in real granite and stone, or Radiance, a high-gloss finish that is punctuated with texture and features holographic facets that refract and reflect light.
