The company distributes Formica high pressure laminates (HPL) and DuPont™ Corian® and DuPont™ Basic solid surfacing through its Surface Innovations business unit.
Furthermore, PG Bison manufactures Formica Life-Seal worktops (an HPL bonded to Bison-Bord with a sealing strip for added protection against moisture).
These products are all used extensively in home storage, such as kitchen and built-in cupboards as well as household and office furniture and the shop-fitting industry.
