THE r50 NAME: Richlite’s first ever recycled product is made with 50% recycled paper from Old Corrugated Cardboard (OCC). The cardboard boxes are collected from curbside recycling programs near the Richlite factory.
r50 starts as a medium brown, aging into a warm, honey-brown. You can differentiate this color by noticing the small specks common to recycled paper.
PATINA: Richlite patinas like a natural wood product and varies from sheet to sheet. Like wood, it will 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 r50 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, however, the mottled appearance is still present.
