EcoTec Surfaces is the next generation of green building material. Its patented blend of recycled glass and bio-renewable soybean resin is a unique alternative to traditional acrylic and other solid surfaces. EcoTec Surfaces allows you to make an environmentally conscious and visually striking design that is both earth-friendly and affordable.
EcoTec Surfaces contains a high percentage of recycled glass and bio-renewable materials. Its light weight further reduces the monetary cost and carbon footprint of shipping traditional materials such as acrylic solid surfaces, quartz, granite, or marble.
EcoTec Surfaces contains at least 53% recycled and renewable materials. Its proprietary mixture uses recycled glass, including windshield glass, one of the more difficult glasses to recycle because, due to the coating on the glass, windshield glass cannot be used in recycled consumables. EcoTec Surfaces gives new life to a cast-off resource.
EcoTec Surfaces also utilizes a bio-renewable soybean resin in place of the environmentally-unfriendly petroleum-based resins used in traditional solid surfaces. When combined with the recycled glass, the resulting proprietary mix is earth-friendly, strong, and beautiful: an alternative to traditional solid surfaces that is good for the environment.
We manufacture EcoTec Surfaces right here in the USA. We believe in creating American jobs and using American agricultural materials in our product. We’re proud of our local roots, and to honor our hometown, our standard colors are named after streets in St. James, Missouri where our headquarters are located.
Acrylitec Surfaces is available in a vast array of colors and patterns, including:
- infinite solid colors
- variegated, swirled, and veined patterns of small multicolored particulates
- granite-like patterns of large particulates
- random large and small particulates in variegated, swirled, and veined patterns that do not repeat
In addition to the vast color options, Acrylitec Surfaces can also be printed with your custom images using a dye sublimation process. The heat and vacuum process permanently bonds the image to the pores of the surface, and the surface can then be thermoformed, fabricated, cleaned, and lightly sanded as usual.

With the proper care, your new Acrylitec Surfaces™ solid surface will retain its beauty for years to come. It is not necessary to seal Acrylitec Surfaces solid surfaces. However, you should avoid using undiluted bleach, strong chemicals, solvents, paint removers, or furniture strippers. on the surface.
Routine cleaning with soap, water, and a sponge, or window cleaner and paper towels, will remove most dirt and stains. To disinfect, wipe the surface with a diluted solution of equal parts household bleach and water and always towel dry to remove water spots. Removal procedures for stubborn stains will vary depending on the surface finish. See the following information.
– Basic Care: Many countertops have a matte finish. For this finish, rub with a damp cloth and use a solid surface cleaner.
– Scratch Removal: Start with 180-grit sandpaper and a 5” or 6” palm sander. We recommend using SIA 1950 180-grit paper. Follow by using a 280- and a 400-grit paper, feathering as you go. Wipe the surface clean between sanding. Finish by using a recommended grey Scotch-Brite® pad on a palm sander.
– Basic Care: Use a non-abrasive cleanser with diluted bleach, rubbing with a white Scotch-Brite pad. Rinse and towel dry. A non-abrasive polish may be used to enhance the shine.
– Scratch Removal: Start with 180-grit sandpaper and a 5” or 6” palm sander. We recommend using SIA 1950 180-grit paper. Follow by using a 280- and a 400-grit paper, feathering as you go. Wipe the surface clean between sanding. Finish by using a grey Scotch-Brite pad on a palm sander and then using an 800-grit wet polish pad.
– Basic Care: If the counter has a polished or high-gloss finish, apply a bleaching non-abrasive cleaner with a sponge or use a white polishing compound and rub with a soft cloth.
– Scratch Removal: Start with 180-grit sandpaper and a 5” or 6” palm sander. We recommend using SIA 1950 180-grit paper. Follow by using a 280- and a 400-grit paper, feathering as you go. Wipe the surface clean between sanding. Use a grey Scotch-Brite pad on a palm sander. Perform a two-step finish using SIA 1500- and 3000-grit wet polish pads. Wipe thoroughly, and polish with a solid surface polish.
– Use a hot pad or a trivet under heat-producing appliances or hot pots and pans.
– Never cut directly on the surface of the countertop. Always use a cutting board.
– Avoid dropping heavy objects on the surface of the countertop
– Do not allow harsh chemicals (such as acetone) to come into contact with the countertop. Wash these chemicals off with water immediately if they touch the surface.
– Avoid sliding hard objects across the countertop to prevent scratches.

Stains: While all surfaces can be marred by stains and scratches during daily use, Acrylitec Surfaces is nonporous and stain-resistant. Most stains can simply be wiped or scrubbed away using water or a gently abrasive cleaner.
Scratches: All surfaces eventually become damaged through day-to-day use, but you can easily repair minor scratches, small chips, and light scorches from cigarettes or hot pots by lightly sanding the surface then cleaning as normal. Deep gouges or cracks and extreme burns may need the attention of a professional solid surface repairman. We recommend using a cutting board when using a knife on the surface.
Chemicals: Acrylitec Surfaces is resistant to common chemicals like ammonia, mild acids, and trisodium phosphates. However, nail polish remover, strong acids, or concentrated bleach may cause hazing of the surface. This hazing can be removed by cleaning the area with a wet scratch pad, such as a Scotch-Brite cleaning pad.
Heat and Fire: While Acrylitec Surfaces is heat and fire resistant, we recommend using a trivet or hot pad when placing hot pots or heat-generating appliances (e.g., electric skillets or electric cooking pots) on the surface. Fire resistant does not mean fire proof.
No Sealing or Painting Required
More Stable Than Wood
Wood surfaces are subject to instability when faced with moisture and heat. Wood grain expands when it absorbs moisture, and even finished wood can dry and crack. EcoTec Surfaces does not absorb moisture the way wood can. Though solid surfaces can slightly expand and contract from extreme temperature changes, it does not crack under that stress.
Wide Variety of Colors & Designs
In addition to the vast color and particulate options, Acrylitec Surfaces can be printed with your custom images using a dye sublimation process. The heat and vacuum process permanently bonds the image to the pores of the surface, and the surface can then be thermoformed, fabricated, cleaned, and lightly sanded as usual.
