Facts Behind Richlite

Richlite is produced from resin-infused paper. The material was developed over 70 years ago and was originally used for industrial purposes. In time, the uses expanded to include applications in architecture, aerospace, sports, and more. Because of its durability, the material was eventually recognized for its capability in the culinary industry.

The cutting boards are composed of 65% recycled paper combined with 35% of phenolic resin. While the recycled paper is clearly a positive environmental activity, even the resin is certified as meeting and exceeding global environmental standards. The product also meets the criteria set by the Green Building Council.

The attractive mottled look is a result of the combination of the paper content with the somewhat amber tone of the resin.  The boards are highly durable to withstand years of hard service, resistant to stain and knife indentations.

Sustainable because of its renewable content of recycled paper products, Richlite is a dense and highly consistent material, free of voids. It is highly machinable and has a unique texture.

All of these qualities produce an ideal cutting board.
