ChemGuard is a unique, chemical-resistant laminate that provides protection throughout its entire thickness. This makes it one of the most effective products of its kind available today by assuring the chemical resistance needed even if the surface is cut or scratched.

ChemGuard can be specified in any of Pionite's solid colors giving you the range of choices you look for to complete almost any installation. Thicker grades can be used as self-supporting work surfaces in certain applications.

Micastat uses a unique, grounded conductive layer that completely drains voltage away from your work surface. Unlike other electronic discharge (ESD) protective laminates Micastat doesn't store hundreds of volts before releasing them without warning on sensitive electronic devices. With its lifetime electrical properties, critical and valuable electronic components will never be vulnerable to work surface static again.
DecoCor™ is the ultimate choice available today for a structurally engineered laminate. Its unmatched strength comes from over four decades of experience perfecting laminate flooring for bowling alleys and other hard-use environments. It is ideal for lavatory and dressing room partitions, office workstations, and more. Engineered with a dense phenolic core, it is available in thicknesses up to one inch.
Leatherlam combines the luxury of top grain leather with the durability of a high quality laminate. Made from 100 percent leather, it incorporates an exclusive Thermally-Fused Leather technique on an engineered backing sheet. Leatherlam looks and feels like genuine leather because it is. Leatherlam is easily cleaned with mild soap and water. Yet, unlike other products, its surface doesn't require any special conditioners after cleaning.
MelCor II
MelCor II is Pionite's color-through laminate that provides continuous color even on the edges of your finished project. Using a patented process, Melcor II gives your design the flexibility to use the edge of your product to enhance its overall appearance. Melcor II is also available in multi-toned or sandwich colors that can provide interesting banding, engraving and groove techniques.
Hi-Wear Laminate
Hi-Wear Laminate Hi-Wear laminate is an outstanding product offering five times the wear resistance of standard grade HPL. Hi-Wear laminates are manufactured with a unique process that enables them to stand up in applications that are prone to increased abrasion, scuffing and constant cleaning. This durability, along with the style you expect from Pionite, make this an ideal choice for the food industry and retail locations. Salad bars and buffets, tabletops, bar surfaces, checkout counters, mailrooms and copy centers are just a few of the locations to specify Pionite Hi-Wear laminate.
Fire-Rated Laminate
Fire-rated laminate is a high performance product available in all Pionite colors and designs, including solids, woodgrains and abstracts. For this reason, Pionite fire-rated laminate provides an ideal protection and design flexibility. On the surface, you won't be able to tell the difference from standard laminate. However, once you look below you'll find tough, layer upon layer of high quality protection against combustion and smoke production - protection that can meet the most demanding specifications and fire ratings.
HPL and TFM Synergy
Pionite Laminate Since Panolam Industries manufacturers both Pionite HPL and ThermoFused Melamine (TFM), C.H. Briggs can offer a unique synergy of matching colors to ensure a coordinated look for all your project needs.
Doellken-Woodtape Edgebanding
Edgebanding and laminate often go hand-in-hand. Partnering with Doellken-Woodtape, North America's leading manufacturer of edgebanding, C.H. Briggs has a Stock Program & Laminate Cross Reference Guide to assist with edgebanding selection.
