How is Wilsonart® HD® HPL performance enhanced?

Wilsonart® HD® enhanced Antimicrobial Protection is built into the HPL to protect the surface against damaging microbes. Antimicrobial agents protect the surface by inhibiting the growth of stain- and odor-causing bacteria, mold, and mildew, when used for countertops and work

How does the Antimicrobial Protection work?

The antimicrobial protection is built into the decorative layer like AEON™ Performance Technology. It is not a coating. It will not wash away. The antimicrobial protection added to Wilsonart® HD® inhibits the growth of stain- and odor-causing bacteria, mold, and mildew.
