Acrylic is ideal for furniture and architectural pieces, as well as benchtops and service areas. Its non-porous solid surface – composed from natural minerals, bound by acrylic resins – makes it a particularly strong surface and its smooth finish lends it to “bold” finishes. Acrylic happily moulds to work with sharp angles or flowing corners, with almost seamless joins.

Euroedge & Milano

Euroedge creates the appearance of a solid surface with seamless pattern and colour. Achieve the impression of a solid surface benchtop with the more economic option of our new Euroedge.

Milano gives a tactile and visual addition by adding a third dimension texture to the surface.

This look is achieved via a digitally-printed edge tape. The resulting tops are extremely durable and functional. Both Euroedge and Milano are suitable for commercial fit outs, furniture, counter tops, residential bench tops, table tops, and vanity units.
