Paperstone is the new solid surface type. It is made from either 100% post-consumer recycled cardboard or 100% post-consumer recycled paper content with a non chemical resin used as a binder. The color of each Paperstone panel is determined by the content of the recycled paper type. It is surprisingly harder than wood and has a comparable beauty and strength to stone countertops. This brings an interesting alternative in countertop selections.
PaperStone isn't just eco-friendly; it's also homeowner-friendly too. It is extremely durable, natural looking, stain resistant, and waterproof. It withstands many harsh chemicals so it is often used in laboratories. Another advantage is that it inhibits the growth of mold and bacteria.
The material is not always stain proof and the color will darken over time. If discolorations appear, it should be cleaned with the Countertops-R-New™ Kitchen & Bathroom Countertop Renewer Kit which can completely rejuvenate the look and feel of stained Paperstone countertops. To maintain the look of your Paperstone Countertop, clean with the same product. No vigorous cleaning is required, simply wipe, clean and shine in just one step with this product and also use a gentle microfiber cloth.
