Mystera Artisan Collection Oceanic

Artisan Series – Oceanic

Mystera Solid Surface, from GSP Surfaces, introduced the Artisan Series comprised of 22 acrylic solid surface particulate colors suitable for commercial or residential applications. These colors range from a solid white to rich blue, black and brown tones at a conservative price point.  Mystera also currently has 23 veined solid surface colors in the Fusion, Winsome and Platinum Series. The new particulate colors generally offer a quieter palette than the veined colors, although some colors (such as Oceanic pictured here) stand out. Like all solid surface, the material is hygienic, non-porous and mold- and bacteria-resistant, meeting commercial guidelines for restaurants and healthcare. All Mystera products are covered by a 10-year limited liability warranty.

TorZo Launches Surfacing Material Made from Recycled Denim

Posted on 16 January 2015 by cradmin

Torzo DenimTorZo Sustainable Surfaces launched a surfacing material – Denim – made from recycled denim fabric scraps. The denim board is infused with an acrylic resin and mounted to baltic birch plywood, resulting in a panel that is extremely hard and durable, reports the company. As with all TorZo products, Denim is NAUF, made in Oregon and can contribute to LEED certification in several categories. It can be used for vertical, horizontal and specialty applications in any market segment. And, it’s easily fabricated using standard woodworking tools and practices. Suitable performance and durability is achieved through the exclusive TorZo Surfaces infusion process, which provides resistance to abrasion and scratching. Standard lamination to a Baltic Birch plywood backer board gives the panel added dimensional strength. It is offered in two surface treatments: one is finished without filling surface voids, providing a more rustic, textured appearance, and the other is filled and sanded, which eliminates the majority of the surface voids (perfect for horizontal applications). It comes in 2-ft. x 4-ft. sizes and in 1/2-in. thickness (including the plywood backer board). One sheet weighs 37 lbs.

Aristech Acrylics/Avonite Surfaces Rebrands Identity as Aristech Surfaces

Posted on 12 June 2014 by cradmin

New Aristech Surfaces logoOn June 1, in a letter to the industry, Aristech Acrylics/Avonite Surfaces CEO Ross McMillan announced that the two wings of the company would now be folded under a new name – Aristech Surfaces. “There is a long history behind these two global product brands, which have co-existed since 2003, and we are refocusing our efforts to leverage the obvious synergies between them,” stated McMillan. “As we look toward the future, we are looking at the entire surfacing market with its many product/material functionalities. Our goal will be to further expand our ‘surface solutions’ offering, providing customers and markets with a one-stop shop for their various surfacing project needs. This is a much broader approach than our prior individual product and markets approach, and changing our name from Aristech Acrylics LLC to Aristech Surfaces LLC is a natural progression in line with this philosophy.”

StonExpo Joined By 3rd Show, Expands To Twice Annually

Posted on 23 October 2013 by cradmin

Hanley Wood announced that a new, third show, will join with its combined StonExpo and Surfaces event in January, and that it is launching a second StonExpo show on the East Coast in October. The new third leg of the event, TileExpo, will be housed alongside of the two previous shows in a mega trade show event Hanley Wood is calling “The International Surface Event.” Additionally, the show will be held twice in 2014 (and presumably beyond) with the second instance October 19 to 22  in the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami Beach, Fla., and monikered as “The International Surface Event East.”

“We are thrilled to launch these two events. TileExpo will be the perfect complement to SURFACES and StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas,” said Dana Teague, Vice President of Hanley Wood Exhibitions. “Launching The International Surface Event East diversifies our geographic and market segment reach, and creates new opportunities for our audiences to engage with the industry.”

According to a release by the company, TileExpo will have an array of  innovative, trend-setting and distinctive tile products. It will offer an education program that includes hands-on demonstrations and on-floor education.

Industry trade groups seemed to have favorable reaction to the second, eastern, event. “The International Surface Event East will fill a void that has been missing,” said Jim Hieb, executive vice president and CEO of The Marble Institute of America (MIA). “We are eager to see all of our members and industry colleagues in Miami Beach.”

Matt Lansing, executive director of the Stone Fabricators Alliance (SFA) said, “The SFA is very pleased with Hanley Wood’s decision to launch The International Surface Event East. We believe in a Fall show that allows businesses to take advantage of annual fiscal tax opportunities, which are beneficial to suppliers and customers alike. We look forward to this expansion and are confident that this show will be appreciated and embraced by all involved.”
