LEED v4 credits applicable to HPL are shown below:
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) consists of a suite of rating systems for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings, homes and neighborhoods. Wilsonart products can earn credits on a LEED-certified project, typically as part of a finished article or permanently installed product.
Our Spectrum designs pair subtle, layered design with a vast range of colors. If interested in this type of application, please contact your local Wilsonart Representative or email us firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes! Examples of Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces in healthcare applications can be found by visiting our case study page.
HPL, Quartz and TFL are all considered non-repairable surfaces. There are some commercial products available to mask or fill defects for HPL and TFL, but they usually wear off after some general cleaning. The best option to repair a damaged laminate surface is to use RE-COVER™. For Quartz, there are some commercial fabricators that will use commercially available fillers to mask the damage. The success of these techniques is highly dependent on the pattern, color variation and fabricator skill.
Solid Surface and EOScu are considered completely repairable and renewable surfaces. A quality certified Solid Surface or EOScu fabricator can repair or refinish heavily damaged areas back to an original condition while masking the appearance of seams that might have been required to repair the damage. Retention of color-matched materials obtained from the original job is recommended for a precise color match of the repair area.
Yes. ASTM E84 test method rated class 1 and class A performance is available for Fire-Rated Laminate and Fire-Rated Compact Laminate, Solid Surface, EOScu, Quartz and TFL. TFL is available provided the fire-retardant substrates are used to assemble the TFL panel. More information can be found on the Technical Resources page of our website. For EOScu, more information can be found in the EOScu CSI document, Section 2.3.H.
Chemical resistance data, if available, can be found in the Technical Data Sheet for each product. Please visit our Resources page to locate the Tech Data Sheet for the product you are interested in.
Yes! Wilsonart has Care and Maintenance documents for most of our product categories. More information can be found on the Technical Resources page of our website. Learn more about the EOScu Care and Maintenance documentation.
Wilsonart qualifies all laminate (HPL/Chemsurf®/TFL) designs using the Xenon fade test (ISO4586-3) during the development stage. Solid Surface shows a significant resistance to fade upon exposure to UV exposure determined by the Xenon fade testing using NEMA LD3-2005 Method 3.3 (no-effect observed). We are currently working on a method to test the UV performance metrics of our other engineered surfaces more frequently used in standard healthcare facilities.
Stains that remain on Wilsonart’s solid surfacing can be easily removed with water and/or commercial cleaner. The removal process may require extra refinishing steps depending on the duration of contact time, frequency and concentration of the staining agent.
