PaperStone-Certified is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council or FSC, Smartwood and the Rainforest Alliance. It is the only architectural surface on the market today certified by these demanding third parties. Most PaperStone products are made from post-consumer waste, recycled paper and proprietary, petroleum-free, phenolic resins. To the maximum extent technically possible, water is used as the resin solvent. PaperStone is a composite made from recycled paper and proprietary, petroleum-free phenolic resins made from raw materials like cashew nut shell liquid. There are two series of recycled paper-based PaperStone products: 1) 'Original', which is made from 50% post-consumer waste, recycled paper and 2) 'Certified', the FSC, Smartwood and Rainforest Alliance-certified product which is made from 100% post-consumer waste paper. And Paperstone made from virgin fiber is also available. PaperStone is the 'greenest' architectural surface on the market today. Depending upon the project, the use of PaperStone may contribute up to five LEED points. The laminated nature of the product creates an edge that resembles a solid surface product with a faint wood grain appearance. Unlimited edge detail with traditional tooling
