CINCINNATI  — Formica Corporation, the inventor of laminate, unveils its latest innovation, EliteForm™, a new surfacing technology that transcends the customary limitations of laminate by delivering a more durable and scratch-­‐resistant surface while improving the ability to post-­‐form tighter radius edge profiles.

Formica® Brand Laminate installations featuring the EliteForm™ technology will be on display in the Formica Corporation booth N1139 at the 2015 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas on January 20 – 22.

“One of our core company philosophies is to constantly push the boundaries of what is possible with laminate while continuing to improve the integrity and functionality that Formica® Brand Laminate is known for,” said Amy Gath, vice president of North American marketing. “This new technology is groundbreaking in that it offers a more durable surface with a broader assortment of finishes in our residential catalog.” With the introduction of EliteForm™, two existing Formica® Brand finishes now join the residential horizontal lineup — Artisan™ and Gloss. In the past, these finishes were restricted to light-­‐duty horizontal applications, but are now suitable for a wide variety of applications. These finishes will be in several of the new Formica Corporation product lineups for 2015. EliteForm™ surfacing technology will be available on all Formica® Brand Laminate products.
