Laminam is the first to obtain NSF certification for contact with food

A new record for the Italian multinational: it is the first manufacturer of ceramic surfaces in the world to obtain “Solid Surfacing for Food Zone” certification from the NSF – American National Standard for Food Equipment.

Laminam has set a new international record: it is the first manufacturer of ceramic slabs in the world to be awarded the “Solid Surfacing for Food Zone” certification, which authorises the use of its finishes in direct contact with foodstuffs and any related liquid condensate they produce.

The certification is issued by the NSF – American National Standard for Food Equipment, the most prestigious independent organisation for the certification of food zone products in the US and Canada and one of the most important globally.

Laminam finishes sold in 1620 x 3240 mm size for the purpose of manufacture as kitchen countertops meet all North American regulatory requirements with regard to an absence of heavy metals, ease of cleaning, and resistance to acid corrosion.

All of which are hallmarks of the Italian multinational’s surfaces, which are also resistant to heat, scratches, deep abrasions, and UV rays, as well as being intrinsically antibacterial and able to inhibit the formation of microorganisms.

NSF certification is yet another goal of excellence achieved thanks to the staff of Laminam’s Quality Management office, which is constantly engaged in the pursuit of product certifications which demonstrate the superior quality of Laminam surfaces and the natural aspect of the raw materials used to make them, with a view to sustainability across the board.

The results with which Laminam slabs pass stringent international tests are a reflection of the highest quality standards and of their supreme safety in a variety of applications: exterior façades, flooring and cladding, kitchen countertops and tabletops.

Evolution is Laminam hallmark; an ongoing process which combines art, technology, and creativity in order to continually offer brand new, sustainable, groundbreaking design solutions to architects, interior designers and consumers, giving substance, form and elegance to the world of tomorrow.
