Intentek™ Wireless Charging Surface by Formica Group Brings Phone-Charging Technology to Interior Spaces

Integrated charging coils offer seamless design and superior user experience

CINCINNATI (Oct. 9, 2019) — With 72% of consumers reporting they have experienced “battery anxiety” as it relates to their mobile device1, many find themselves searching for a solution to recharge on the go. To help alleviate this challenge, Formica Corporation launched the Intentek Wireless Charging Surface – a Formica® Laminate surface with integrated charging coils that can wirelessly charge Qi Certified devices simply by placing them on it.

“Everyone knows the annoyance of searching for an outlet to charge a phone when away from home, but current wireless charging ‘solutions’ often fall short of both designer and user expectations,” said Amy Gath, vice president, marketing, Formica Corporation North America. “With the Intentek Wireless Charging Surface, designers can now help their clients offer visitors a simple, cord-free charging experience on horizontal surfaces designed to beautifully match any space from an airport lounge to a restaurant.”

Unlike similar products – such as wireless charging pucks or pads that clutter the surface and can be easily damaged with food or water – the Intentek System is fully integrated into the durable, easy-to-clean surface. Intentek is available in the full range of more than 300 Formica® Brand Laminate colors, patterns and woodgrains.

Featuring fast charge times that rival cord charging, the Intentek Technology is Qi Certified for safe, reliable wireless power transfer and device protection. Intentek Wireless Charging Surfaces are designed for applications in many spaces, including hospitality, entertainment, retail, health care, education and office settings.
