Science Behind AEON™

Laminate with AEON™ Enhanced Scratch & Scuff-Resistant Technology, exclusively available on Wilsonart® HD® and Wilsonart® Premium Laminates, creates a surface that is dramatically more durable than competitive laminates with similar finishes - a surfaces that keeps its good looks longer. For more information on how we tested AEON Enhanced Performance, click here.

           Traditional Laminate-Making Process

Particles of aluminum oxide – the primary material that determines the wear resistance of laminate – is incorporated in the paper overlay. Their deposition is dictated by the paper making process, before the overlay comes to Wilsonart to be made into laminate.

            Laminate with AEON

Technology deposits aluminum oxide particles in layers and controls resin flow, so small particles reside nearer the surface of the overlay sheet and larger particles reside within the overlay sheet – for superior durability, scratch/scuff/mar resistance, print fidelity and color saturation. This process is completed in Wilsonart’s manufacturing facility, ensuring consistency and quality of placement.
