WHY AEON ENHANCED PERFORMANCE LAMINATE?

Wilsonart AEON™ high pressure laminate is not just your standard laminate, the science behind this technology sets it apart from all other laminate on the market. Laminate with AEON™ technology outperforms competitive laminates with similar finishes on wear resistance, as well as scratch, scuff and mark resistance. 

ALL WILSONART® HD® HIGH DEFINITION® LAMINATES HAS AEON™ ENHANCED PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGY, MAKING IT:

  • Up to 5 X MORE SCUFF & SCRATCH RESISTANT*
  • Up to 3 X MORE WEAR RESISTANT*

ALL WILSONART® AEON™ ENHANCED PERFORMANCE LAMINATE IS:

  • Up to 3 X MORE SCUFF & SCRATCH RESISTANT*
  • Up to 3 X MORE WEAR RESISTANT*

*Versus competitive laminates with similar finishes

 

THE SCIENCE BEHIND AEON™ 

High pressure laminate comprises layers of resin-treated papers, processed under high heat and pressure to create a strong, flexible decorative surface. AEON™ revolutionizes the way we make laminate.

 

SCRATCH, SCUFF AND MARK RESISTANCE

Abrasion tests on the scratch,scuff and mark resistance of the surface has defined the overall impact Aeon™ technology has on standard laminate.

Laminate samples were subjected to 200 passes with a weighted, industrial strength Scotch-Brite Pad. In this test traditional laminate was placed side-by-side with laminate manufactured using the new Aeon™ technology.

Depending on the finish type and pattern of the laminate (some finishes/patterns disguise wear better than others), Aeon™ Enhanced Performance laminate outperformed traditional laminate by a factor of 3x to 5x!

WEAR RESISTANCE

Tests developed by NEMA(National Electrical Manufacturers Association) standards measures the number of cycles it takes for an abrasive sandpaper pad to wear through the laminate surface at two points. The initial Point (IP) when the laminate surface first shows wear to when the pad wears all the way through the decorative surface.

The NEMA standard for traditional laminate is 400 cycles, with Wilsonart Aeon technology the cycles reach 1,200, outperforming the standard 3x!
