Prism TFL, the only laminate with InCopper® antimicrobial protection in North America

Langley, B.C., January 2, 2019 Introduced by ARAUCO, InCopper® is a proprietary antimicrobial technology now incorporated in PRISM TFL panels. InCopper uses a patented formulation of copper salts developed to actively protect the Prism panel surface against deterioration, stains or degradation caused by bacteria, mold, fungi and other microbes. InCopper antimicrobial technology will be standard in all Prism TFL exclusive designs starting January 1st, 2019, and offered as an option for commodities. Available at KBIS through Hardwoods Specialty Products and Rugby Architectural Building Products, showcased at booth #SL4116 (Rugby Hardwoods Paxton).

 

Prism TFL with InCopper protection is perfect for high traffic or interior applications with increased exposure to humidity where the panel may be susceptible to contamination from microbes or mold. Ideal applications include offices, hospitals, restaurants, school, kitchens, closets or bathrooms.


Safe and proven, InCopper protects Prism TFL during the entire life of the panel surface by actively and continuously eliminating bacteria, mold, fungi, viruses and parasites. More reasons to love your Prism TFL laminates!
