Lustralite® incorporates various organic and synthetic inclusions in saturating papers to help create high-end decorative surfaces with distinctive design implications. From pearlescent pigments that lend a subtle sheen to metallic inclusions that add a sparkle to decorative laminates, it has the ability to create the look designers want using flocks or fibers to provide texture and pattern. Lustralite can also be made with natural materials such as banana and coconut husks, or other materials that are organic in nature. The result is a dimensional paper with a handmade, textured look that can be manufactured in a production environment, giving designers freedom in creating innovative laminates, packaging, stationery and other customized products.
