The paper with superhuman strength

Richlite – an incredibly durable material made from something completely unexpected – paper. It’s used by aerospace, extreme sports, marine, food prep and the architecture and design community.

About Richlite

Developed over 70 years ago for industrial tooling, Richlite has evolved into a premium surface material. Its mottled appearance, honed look, leathery feel, and warmth complement a range of interior and exterior applications including furniture cabinetry, shopfitting, cladding, consumer products, signage, retail displays, restaurant tables, bar tops, and worktops.

Nonporous, and heat/water resistant, this paper composite can withstand everything – from food prep to the harsh outdoors. Whether selected for its durability, strength, sustainability or unique look and feel, Richlite outperforms and outlasts conventional materials.
