BEACHWOOD, Ohio -- Omnova Solutions was recognized for a decorative laminate design.

Omnova won the Gravure Association of the Americas’ 2019 Golden Cylinder Award in the Product-Decorative Laminates category. This was the second year in a row Omnova’s Laminates and Films business has won the award. The company also won the award for Best of the Best in the Product category for gravure-quality execution of graphics on various substrates.

The annual competition promotes the gravure printing process and provides peer recognition for technical achievement. Judges are selected from a group of recognized professionals with experience and an established reputation in the gravure industry, including designers, educators and publishers.

Recognized as the 2019 winner in the Product-Decorative Laminates category, Bodega Old Light Plank is a surf(x) Echo 3D laminate that uses the latest Emboss-In-Register (EIR) technology to produce realistic woodgrain. With EIR technology, the laminate texture ‘echoes’ the natural material, creating a realistic look and feel that simulates nature.

Bodega Old Light Plank, produced in Omnova’s Auburn, Pennsylvania, manufacturing facility, is a 16 mil rigid thermofoil (RTF) in a multicolored plank woodgrain. Mimicking paint-worn, distressed wood planks with crisp color and unique texture, this laminate offers an inspired design and is the first-to-market plank-style woodgrain featuring EIR technology.
