Richlite® offers beautiful pressed paper products for use as counters, which will develop a seasoned appearance over time. Similar to wood, there is a natural aging process which begins immediately and may take years to complete. The paper color and resin color combine to make the original product color. You may notice changes in the counters after one to three months, depending upon the exposure to natural light. Richlite® colors will darken with time. The color change is most noticeable in lighter colors. There will be more luster or burnishing where the counter is used more. Here’s the link to Richlte®’s features and benefits.
