Formica Protec+ Antimicrobial High Pressure Laminate for Hygienic and Safer Environment

Formica Protec+ in Soft Matte surface finishes that allow designers endless combinations to improve the decorative quality of building and structures


Choosing the right finishing is a test of skills for interior designers, who often have to balance the demands from end users in terms of budget, safety and hygiene, durability, aesthetics and comfort. Adding complexity to this is yet another checklist where the designers need to practise careful selection of colour, form, space, texture, pattern, line and light to tie the final design together and complete the project.

Formica Group, being at the forefront of the decorative laminate industry, has all these concerns and demands addressed, and each of the checklist boxes ticked. Formica Protec+®, a high performance premium laminate product offers a wide range of designs and colors has a built-in antimicrobial surface protection feature, which stops bacteria, mildew and mold or fungal growth that leads to stains and unpleasant odours.

The antimicrobial main active ingredient is silver ions which binds key protein in micro-organism. This mechanism effectively stops the cell division, inhibits their growth and damages the microbial key structures, thus disabling their energy production and other essential functions. The end result is a safer, cleaner and more hygienic surface, and this has been scientifically tested and proven, in which a sharp reduction of up to 99% of microbes within 2 hours has been observed and recorded.

This surface protection action prolongs the lifespan of the structures 24/7, a plus factor especially in hot and humid tropical weather here in Singapore. The Soft Matte finishing is also visually appealing, less reflective, pleasant to touch, and less visible to fingerprints and smudging.

Formica Protec+® in Singapore Luminous Residential Collection offers Solid Colors in Soft Matte surface finishes. This extensive selection choice allows the designers endless combinations to improve the decorative quality of building and structures, adding depth, layering and dimensionality to their designs. The Solid Colors selection enables designers to fuse beautiful design with purposeful functionality, exploiting clean lines and modern use of materials and colours that gives the Urban Contemporary design theme a welcoming and chic interior space to individual homes.

Formica Protec+® offers vast potential for innovative and stylish interiors. Applications such as counters, desks and furniture can be enhanced with special inlay effects and sharp edging details. It is also suitable for any other design themes; ranging from modern, minimalist, industrial, mid-century modern, Scandinavian, traditional, transitional and the list goes on. 

Whether designing new space, upgrading or remodelling, Formica Protec+® is the perfect solution for designers that are inspired by and adapt to the way people live, work and play. The antimicrobial feature is an added advantage especially in current pandemic situation afflicting nations worldwide, including Singapore, where hygiene is being increasingly emphasized and prioritized.
