According to Formica its new 180fx collection of laminates is closing the gap between real and faux. There are five new natural-stone designs featuring featuring a premium-level, softly polished Etchings finish and highlights from tiny fissures similar to that found in granite and stone. The product captures the true scale and visual drama of a full granite slab by recreating its sweep of striking colorations and veining.
In addition the new edge treatments add to the material’s realism by eliminating the black lines and are suitable for curved, clipped or 90-degree corner installations. There are a total of 21 realistic patterns and colors available in the collection.
