About the new Grain Finish

The newest Formica finish, Grain is a hard-wearing, tactile, matte woodgrain texture. Beautifully finished and feeling like a woodgrain to the touch, Grain is used in Cabinetry Doors and Panels and Wardrobe Interiors and is available as Decorated Particleboard or Decorated MDF in select colours.

‘Tassie Oak’ by Formica is a new colour in the Grain range which mimics the look of the traditional Tasmanian Oak wood veneer doors. The process to achieve an authentic timber look is now more convenient and affordable. Simply cut down the Tassie Oak panels, run them on the edgebander with matching 1mm thick edging, and your project is near completion. No sanding, painting or lacquering is required, as the melamine woodgrain texture panels are ready to use.

Combining solid & woodgrain colours is now easier and more rewarding using the new grain finish range. This kitchen combines Formica ‘Warm White’ with the original ‘Natural Oak’ by Formica, both now available in the new woodgrain texture finish.

The wood panels are available in 16mm thick Moisture Resistant MDF which is ideal for use in Kitchens, Laundries and Bathrooms. Finger pull or pull-out doors can also be achieved with the new range, if you wish to go handleless on your cabinetry. For more commercial styled projects, select colours are also available in oversize 3600x1200x16mm sheets, in standard particleboard. This will ensure you minimise wastage and maximise your panel sizes to avoid joints for a neater finish. See the full range of colours here and their nominated sizes.

‘Charred Oak’ is a highly popular colour in the Formica range, with its dark woodgrain pattern and shade. Formica has re-invigorated this decor by adding it to the new grain range, now available in 2400x1200x16mm MR MDF.

Other new oak-styled colours have been added to the range such as: Bodega Oak, Sopporo Oak, Tassie and Autumn Oak, all now available in the new woodgrain texture surface. Formica’s new textured Grain finish allows you to deliver a more expensive look and feel to your doors, shelving and cabinetry.

Our interior spaces will soon be transformed with the introduction of this hard-wearing and affordable colour range. Trademaster carries these melamine panels in stock at their South Granville warehouse including matching 1mm thick edgebanding. Download the new Formica Grain colour range flyer here.

Wardrobes are a common interior space which require panel sizes to be extended in order reach ceiling heights and minimise wastage on materials. This is now easier to achieve using Formica’s new grain range, as their colour panels are available in a larger size of 3600x1200x16mm in standard particleboard select colours.

Formica can transform a space in an instant. The range encompasses a tailored collection of solid colours, patterns and woodgrains to suit a limited budget while still achieving a high quality, stylish finish.
