The eight color-infused options available are: Amethyst, Cocoa, Copper, Natural, Onyx,  Ruby, Sapphire and Turquoise.  According to the company, the panels are suitable for high-traffic and demanding installations, such as countertops.

TorZo Launches Surfacing Material Made from Recycled Denim

Posted on 16 January 2015 by cradmin

Torzo DenimTorZo Sustainable Surfaces launched a surfacing material – Denim – made from recycled denim fabric scraps. The denim board is infused with an acrylic resin and mounted to baltic birch plywood, resulting in a panel that is extremely hard and durable, reports the company. As with all TorZo products, Denim is NAUF, made in Oregon and can contribute to LEED certification in several categories. It can be used for vertical, horizontal and specialty applications in any market segment. And, it’s easily fabricated using standard woodworking tools and practices. Suitable performance and durability is achieved through the exclusive TorZo Surfaces infusion process, which provides resistance to abrasion and scratching. Standard lamination to a Baltic Birch plywood backer board gives the panel added dimensional strength. It is offered in two surface treatments: one is finished without filling surface voids, providing a more rustic, textured appearance, and the other is filled and sanded, which eliminates the majority of the surface voids (perfect for horizontal applications). It comes in 2-ft. x 4-ft. sizes and in 1/2-in. thickness (including the plywood backer board). One sheet weighs 37 lbs.
