Richlite Maker Series: Shape Studio

This past summer the creative team here at Richlite traveled around the UK and met up with some of our favorite makers, designers, and architects who frequently use our material in exciting new ways. 

FEATURES + BENEFITS

With many inherent advantages, Richlite continues to be utilized for its versatile range of features and benefits. Unlike stone or a solid surface, Richlite works similar to a dense hardwood and can be easily milled, sanded, routed, and joined. Richlite is water-resistant, sanitary, has low moisture absorption, heat and fire resistant, extraordinarily dense and durable, and has a natural appeal due to its paper construction.

DURABILITY

High impact resistance, deflective and flexural strength and structural capabilities make Richlite an extremely durable material.

MACHINABILITY

Dense, consistent and without voids, Richlite is an ideal machinable material for drilling, tapping, tooling and complex patterns.

SUSTAINABILITY

From 100% recycled products to waste-to-energy (WE™) technology, Richlite makes an obvious sustainable choice.

TACTILE

Richlite’s distinctive look and feel provides for a unique tactile experience.

SURFACE OPTIONS

*These are finishes that can be achieved by a professional millworker / fabricator. All Richlite products are shipped only as a mill finish.

MILL FINISH

Straight out of the press and on to your application. No applied finish needed to appreciate our mill texture.

LEATHERED*

Keeps the texture of Richlite, but an added applied finish enriches the color and adds a layer of protection.

HONED*

Looking for more of a satin look? A simple sanding process and an applied finish will achieve our honed look.
