Solid Phenolic is a unique material designed especially for full water contact, high traffic, and vandal-prone environments. It is ideal for high humidity areas, or where hose-down cleaning methods are used. The material is composed of melamine impregnated decorative surface papers superimposed over a varying number of Kraft phenolic core sheets to achieve a desired thickness, forming a one-piece solid and compact core panel, which will not delaminate. The heavy duty and superior strength of phenolic offers many advantages, including overall damage resistance. Phenolic exceeds the Fire Protection Association’s recommendation for smoke production. The finish is available in many designer color and wood grain texture options to appeal to any decorating taste. If you are seeking a heavy duty, water-proof beast, you have met your match!
