Description

Richlite is a phenolic resin/cellulose compound material produced by Richlite Company. Like other phenolic resin/cellulose compound material it is a dense material made from partially recycled paper and phenolic resin. The paper is soaked in phenolic resin, then molded and baked into net shape in a heated form or press.

Originally distributed as a commercial kitchen surface in the 1950s, it has recently been adapted for use in skateboard parks as well as various other applications, such as residential counters, fiberglass cores, guitar fingerboards and limited architectural materials.
