The AR plus range is highly resistant to scuffs and mar abrasions and has been accredited by the LGA Quality Testing Institute in Germany, with test results showing that this product is the best scuff-resistant laminate on the market. A beautifully tactile option, Sculpted by Formica Group will transform any surface, offering an on-trend look and answering the demand for sculpted, scraped and wire-brushed surfaces. This innovative new texture is perfect for creating an added dimension. Available in a range of colours, from subtle neutrals of Kashmir and Storm to Lime and the vibrant orange of Levante, or the mellow tone of Cassis. A versatile material, with solid colour throughout, ColorCore® by Formica Group is ideal for creating inlay effects and sharp edging detail. In addition to the classic Velour texture, ColorCore® is also available in MicroDot and Gloss finishes.
