KBIS 2017 Recap

Our bright and sunny Modern Surfaces booth was definitely an oasis in a sea of neutrals and Quartz. We could feel that our message was resonating and having the three brands – Durat, IceStone and PaperStone - under one roof made a tangible difference in how all the products were perceived. 

Cheers to keeping the momentum going and continuing to #createbetter. For more information on Modern Surfaces and alternatives to stone and granite, come visit us at www.modern-surfaces.com

Create Better….........Guitars

Did you know PaperStone is used to make guitar parts?  The durable material is ideal to create “jigs” which are used to machine guitar parts.  The durability of PaperStone coupled with the ability to easily machine it, makes it a great option for guitar makers like Sylvan Wells of Wells Guitars, who has been using PaperStone for years to help make guitars.  Sylvan says, “The workability and stability of PaperStone and the ready availability through CaraGreen make it the perfect option for Wells Guitars as we continue to create better and more innovative guitar designs.”

Skaters Love Gators

We are excited to announce a slight departure from our interior focused materials, as we bring on Gator Skins skate ramp material.  These 1/4” thick, incredibly durable sheets, create a better textured, more durable and cheaper ramp surface that performs better than comparable products on the market. 

We already have one successful installation at a snowboard park at SugarBush in Vermont.  If you are a skater, or have friends that are, please share the news that this great material is available locally and at a great price.  Call us at 919.929.3009 or email info@caragreen.com for more information and like us on Facebook.
