It would be best to contact the manufacturer, PaperStone, directly for this type of information.

Paperstone is easily cleaned with natural cleaners, it does have to be polished with a Paperstone polish a few times a year. It will patina. No, it would not be possible to backlight Paperstone.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Design 2011: Trends to Build On
Finally, the trend I know there will be increased interest in over the next several years is how to make a home more green through the use of new and emerging products. From paint to fabrics, building materials and surfaces such as this recycled paper countertop, it will be exciting to see what new products enter the marketplace. What trends do you hope to see more of in 2011?
The counter in the foreground of this kitchen is a green product made from post-consumer recycled paper mixed with resin. The material is called Paperstone and it's a strong, waterproof option if sustainability is one of your renovation goals.
Paper CompositePaper countertops? You read it right. Created from paper fibers mixed with resin, this surface is ecofriendly and a whole lot more durable than it sounds. Pros: Paper composite evokes the look of solid surfacing or laminate but with a warmer sensibility. It's surprisingly hardy and can withstand heat and water admirably. It's also a great deal lighter than natural stone or concrete. Cons: The material isn't scratchproof and is susceptible to chemical damage. It needs an occasional rubdown with mineral oil, and even sanding, to refresh it. Although it sounds as though it would be a lower-budget option, it isn't (unless you install it yourself).Cost: $85 to $125 per square foot, installedTell us: Do you have a countertop you love?
