This material is used in both our shower systems and privacy partitions. Learn more about what is BioPrism® Solid Surface.
A: We offer a wide range of colors specifically geared toward our commercial markets in 3 color categories:
- A Colors: Solid pigmented colors (our most popular category).
- A1 Colors: These include small darker particulates that can help camouflage daily wear and tear or superficial blemishes.
- B Colors: Our most-decorative category has speckles and particulates designed to mimic the look of granites or natural stone.
All of our colors are solid all the way through which means they can be renewed for years to come. See our full palette of colors available and order samples today.

A: Our panels can be ordered to specific sizes or easily trimmed in the field with carbide-tipped blades. Just be sure to fully support the panel while it’s being cut.
Learn more about field fabrication by watching our video.
Soft Seam: Using translucent or color-coordinated silicone to produce a "soft seam" between the panels. Great for allowing subtle expansion and contraction of the building at inside corners or seams covered with trim.
Hard Seam: A 2-part color coordinated adhesive that is pumped into the seam, allowed to cure and is sanded smooth for an inconspicuous and watertight joint.

A: No, in fact some waterproofing membranes may hinder the adhesion of the panels with silicone. Unlike tile and grout, our BioPrism® Solid Surface panels are not designed to weep or leak and do not require an additional layer of water protection, saving you time and money!

A: In construction projects – be it new construction, major renovation or retrofits – installers may encounter wall conditions that are less than true. Solid surface panels with an s-curve “wavy” edge allows panels to fit together with a flat, flush seam where the wall may fluctuate.
A: The panels must fit inside the shower base’s outer flange or "water barrier."
A: Yes! Be sure the tile is cleaned and structurally sound before getting started. Next, the tile surface should be scuffed up with 36-grit sandpaper. Then, the solid surface sheet can be affixed to the tile with 100% silicone adhesive.
