Polaris HPL

Polaris is smooth and velvety to the touch, with a unique edge detail that is unlike anything on the market.

Unique Edge Detail: European birch finished with a innovative solid 1mm through-colour matt laminate perfect for cafes, homes, schools and any commercial space.

Oversized Sheet: Comes as a 3m length, ideal for benchtops.

Food Safety: Verification tests according to ISO 22196 / JIS Z 2801 conducted by an accredited laboratory to measure the antibacterial performance, demonstrate that the bacterial load is reduced by 99.9% after 24 hours. The structure of Polaris with its high degree of cross-linking makes its surface compact and non-porous. This characteristic doesn’t allow bacterial, fungal and / or micro-organisms colonies to penetrate and proliferate.
