Panel Processing Inc., headquartered in Alpena, Mich., U.S., has launched its 2019 exclusive Thermally Fused Laminate line, The Crater Lake Collection. The new collection, which includes nine exclusive colors and two new textures, is produced on Panel Processing’s newly purchased, state-of-the art Wemhöner press at its Klamath Falls, Ore., facility.
With this introduction, Panel Processing adds two new textures to its capabilities: Caldera, a woodgrain with prominent cathedrals and arches that creates a dramatic profile; and Cleetwood, a clean, linear woodgrain with subtle changes in the texture through depth and contrast. Varying levels of gloss and movement draw the eye and attention to the finish. The two textures were chosen to complement the woodgrain designs in the collection.
Panel Processing has worked closely alongside designers to create a collection that resonates with a diverse design audience. The colors and textures embrace the strong natural elements that are inspired by Crater Lake, which is located near the company’s Klamath Falls, Ore., U.S. facility.
The Crater Lake Collection blends many of Panel Processing’s classic designs with some of the current trends in texture and color. The rustic, weathered neutrals with cool grays and warm taupe tones bring nature inside while also embodying a traditional palette ideal for creating clean design.
The Thermally Fused Laminate line will not only complement the current product line but will more than double current production. This increased capacity will allow Panel Processing to service more customers as well as supply a wider range of textures, which are in high demand today.
