What is Richlite?
Richlite is a paper-based fiber composite material manufactured by Richlite Company. Based in Tacoma, Washington, Richlite Company pioneered the paper-composite surface industry beginning in 1943. Intectural is proud to offer this innovative, sustainable material made from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified paper.
Richlite starts out as pulp and is turned into paper before being transformed into a beautiful, durable, weather-resistant material. This product can be used like wood for a variety of commercial or residential surfaces or design accents, from sink basins and exterior wall cladding to bathroom partitions, guard rails and pillar wraps. Stain, water, scratch and heat resistant, Richlite surfaces come in a variety of colors and collections to suit all design tastes.
