Laminated Boards, Formica
Formica laminate, as supplied by Saxon Laminates Ltd, is the most recognisable name in the laminate market. Invented by Westinghouse Electric Corporation in 1912, it was originally used for electrical insulation (as a replacement for ‘mica’) the product was quickly adopted for many industries who recognised its versatility.
The Formica Corporation ‘barrier sheet’ patented in 1927 is the forerunner of the modern kitchen and bathroom countertop. Every laminated Formica board that Saxon Laminations Ltd supply can trace its antecedents back to 1927.
