Formica Limited introduces AR plus® High Gloss Plain Colours

Formica Limited introduces AR plus® High Gloss Plain Colours

Formica Limited is pleased to announce the introduction of Formica AR plus® High Gloss Plain Colours to its High Pressure Laminate collection.

Perfectly on trend with the bold colours and gloss finishes being used in today’s commercial and residential interiors, AR plus high-gloss laminates demonstrate how Formica Limited continues to produce innovative surfacing materials.

A high-gloss finish reflects light around an interior which adds to its visual impact and flexibility. Available in a 3,050 x 1,300 x 1.2mm sheet size, the AR plus range features 29 colours that will complement any scheme – from a monochrome to a bright, zesty palette.

AR plus high-gloss, plain-colour laminates are perfect to combine with an understated backdrop to provide an accent feature, or to complement other colours and textures to create striking colour and surface combinations.

The unique AR plus technology has been specially developed by Formica Limited – AR means abrasion resistant. This new high-gloss laminate offers twice the performance of traditional gloss and is highly resistant to scuffs and mar abrasions. Additionally, the AR plus range has been accredited by the LGA Quality Testing Institute in Germany, with test results showing that this product is the best scuff-resistant laminate on the market.

Simon Wild, Marketing Manager of Formica Limited commented: “With the AR plus range of high gloss laminates we are offering designers and specifiers a surface solution which would work well in a number of environments. We foresee AR plus having a real appeal to those designing within the retail and hospitality sectors which are fashion and trend driven, but also in sectors like education and leisure where you can create interesting zones within bigger spaces. AR plus provides specifiers with the confidence to use a high-gloss product that not only looks good, but performs too”.

Formica Limited is the market leader and the only manufacturer of High Pressure Laminate in the UK.
