Wilsonart Launches Antimicrobial Protection for Residential Laminate

New Antimicrobial Protection inhibits growth of microbes on Wilsonart® HD®

LAS VEGAS, NV (January 18, 2016) – Committed to developing beautiful, durable, affordable, sustainable and practical engineered surfaces that meet the demands of today’s consumers, Wilsonart, a leading manufacturer of decorative engineered surfaces for 60 years, today announced its new Wilsonart® HD® Laminate with Antimicrobial Protection.

Wilsonart HD Laminate continues to combine the most dramatic designs and textures with Enhanced Scratch and Scuff-Resistant AEON™ Technology to produce the best laminate for countertops and work surfaces. All Wilsonart HD designs now also include an antimicrobial agent that protects the surface from odor- and stain-causing mold and mildew.

"Wilsonart is recognized for its innovative surface options with beautiful and dramatic designs and textures,” says Ricky Crow, director Wilsonart® High Pressure Laminate. “Once again, we’ve combined both art and science to create a surface option that consumers want in their home for its elegance and enhanced performance features. And new Antimicrobial Protection shields countertop surfaces from stains and odors.”

Antimicrobial Technology
Wilsonart’s enhanced antimicrobial protection is built into the laminate to protect the surface against the growth of damaging microbes that cause stains and odors on countertops and work surfaces.  Wilsonart’s Antimicrobial Protection won’t wash away or wear off, and doesn’t change the beautiful surface design and texture.

Wilsonart introduced Wilsonart® HD® in 2005 as the highest performing laminate for countertops. The company amped up performance another notch with the addition of Enhanced Scratch and Scuff-Resistant AEON™ Technology in 2009. Today Wilsonart HD designs contain both high performance features – scuff resistance and antimicrobial protection – at no additional cost.  

Wilsonart HD Laminates are available now from kitchen and bath retailers and home centers nationwide. To learn more about the product and to request samples, visit www.Wilsonart.com or call 1-800-433-3222 to speak to a Wilsonart representative.
