Being the first composite surface material product to combine rapidly renewable bamboo and post-consumer recycled paper fiber with its proprietary, clear, water-based resin system, Klip BioTechnologies has managed to effectively bring very durable and cost-effective products to market creating no adverse impacts on air quality, water quality or forest health.

“This new countertop addresses sustainability in the resource extraction of the main materials by using bamboo and paper fiber. It is aesthetically pleasing while focusing on indoor air quality issues and durability,” noted Aye.

EcoTop™ has superior UV stability against competitor products due to the water-based resin and color integrity all the way through the product. It is offered in 10 different colors, creating a very diverse line of products that will be able to suit any design. It is compatible with all household cleaning products and effectively cannot be stained with grease, wines, citruses, or coffee due to its lack of ability to absorb water.

Withstanding temperatures up to 360 degrees, this product’s composition makes it a very responsible, sustainable countertop option that out performs other mainstream product brand names. EcoTop products can be cut, sanded, and finished like wood and solid surface products without the risk of breaking, cracking, or sacrificing its pigment or natural appearance, making it very maintainable. Due to its long lasting, durable nature, this product will last decades and can be used for biofuel production at the end of its life-cycle.

Judges said the company’s “innovative approach to using post-consumer recycled product with rapidly renewable material has resulted in a handsome countertop.” In short, EcoTop promotes sustainability in both environmental health and design.
