THE BLUE CANYON NAME: Named for the natural blue haze that blankets the area near Lake Whatcom in northern Washington, Blue Canyon is one of several colors from the Northwest Collection, dedicated to the natural landmarks near Richlite’s Washington State headquarters.
Blue Canyon first appears as a dark cobalt blue and darkens toward navy, eventually becoming midnight blue. Note that images of materials are a close representation of color and texture, but the actual product color and texture may vary.
PATINA: Richlite patinas like a natural wood product and varies from sheet to sheet. Like wood, it will oxidize and mature in color, giving greater depth to the surface. Over time and with use, Richlite will develop a seasoned appearance characteristic of the material. There will be more luster in areas of heavier use. Overall, it will appear softer and deeper in tone.
THROUGH COLOR: The Blue Canyon color comes from a combination of the paper and the deep amber tone of the resin. Richlite's unique manufacturing process uses pre-colored paper. As a result, the color is solid all the way through the material.
SURFACE APPEARANCE: Due to the natural variation in the way fibers lay within the panel, Richlite has a mottled appearance that patterns in a lengthwise direction. This is less apparent in dark colors, such as Blue Canyon; however, the mottled appearance is still present.
