LAC-MÉGANTIC, Quebec -- Tafisa has announced that on August 27 the company will be adding a complete matching line of high pressure laminates to its Sommet and Prelude TFL Series. Made from the same texture plates and the same printed decors, Tafisa is launching The Perfect Match, the same look and feel of its products in both TFL and HPL. This applies to EIR synchronized textures too.

Branded Surforma, Tafisa’s 5 x 9 HPL line is manufactured by its sister company, Sonae Indústria de Revestimentos, SA (SIR) in Portugal. SIR has been producing HPL since 1959. The full Surforma line will be stocked in Canada close to Tafisa’s plant and will allow Tafisa to offer combined deliveries of TFL panels and HPL sheets on the same truck, or rail car.

According to Tafisa, the decision to stock the full range of HPL locally will allow the company to deliver its quality products with quick lead times.

Also, Tafisa will be unveiling two new EIR Synchronized Textures, Teak and Hickory, at IWF 2018 in Atlanta. Named Brava and Feria, the textures replicate the look and feel of teak and hickory, respectively, and will be available in both TFL and HPL. They will also come with a wide range of complementary products, including edgebanding, doors, 3D laminates and mouldings. Visit IWF Booth #1946. See www.tafisa.ca.
