What is Thermally Fused?

Thermally Fused laminate technology uses heat and pressure to produce a permanent thermal bond between the melamine laminate and a 1” high-density substrate. Delamination is simply not possible. Tops are resistant to scratches, abrasions, stains, chipping, radiant heat, steam and mild chemicals.

What is a powder-coat finish?

Powder-coating is a “dry paint” application process in which finely ground particles of pigment and resin are electrostically charged and sprayed onto a surface, which is then baked-on (cured) to set the coating. The advantage of powder-coating is that it is substantially thicker and therefore more durable, that a “wet paint” coating.
