No limit to this laminate.

A digitally customizable and sustainable laminate featuring multi-layer, textural imaging capabilities is one of the new products on the market for commercial and residential applications.

Available from BioSurf, the new Stratus laminate is similar in makeup to the company's standard 2DL products, but with the addition of a tactile/relief texture that is registered and aligned with aspects of the image.

"Stratus uses a multilayer print technology to enable custom textures that perfectly align with high-definition images," explained BioSurf President Mike Riebel. "It delivers a look and feel that very closely approaches the kind of dynamic texture found in 3D printing and works especially well for retail store fixtures and hospitality applications where texture is integral to the interior design."

A bio-based product made with corn and soy byproducts, BioSurf 2DL Stratus is available in more than 100 standard colors and textures, with custom options available. It can be used in a wide variety of surface profiles and substrates, with typical applications that include wall paneling, tables, store fixtures, interior doors and cabinetry.

Sustainable Product

According to the company, BioSurf 2DL Stratus is manufactured through a process in which a corn and soy biofilm is laminated to an FSC-certified saturated paper backer. The composite sheet is sent through a wide-format HD printer, whereby the pattern or image is printed onto it. After the laminate is printed and cured, a final protective coating is applied.

A sustainable product, it can contribute to LEED Credits: MR 6 (Rapidly Renewable Materials), EQ IEQc 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 (Low Emitting), and MR 5.1 and 5.2 (Regional Materials) where appropriate.

BioSurf is a subsidiary of Biovations Holdings, which was founded by Mike and Milton Riebel.
