THE SLATE NAME: The first ‘colored’ product Richlite produced was Slate. Known for its durability and weather resistance, Slate has been the go-to choice for exterior cladding and other outdoor applications.

  • Slate is a true jet-black color. Slate is our most color-stable option for exterior applications.

    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 Slate 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 Slate; however, the mottled appearance is still present.
