The International Surface Fabricators Association (ISFA), an independent, not-for-profit trade association made up of companies that work with all surfacing materials, launched its Safe Solid Surface campaign. The idea behind the educational initiative is to help make architects, designers, healthcare facility planners, consumers and all other surfacing specifiers aware of the safe, clean and hygienic properties of solid surface during this time when cleanliness is so critical to our health.

Safe, hygienic surfaces are more important than ever in the age of COVID-19.

An article outlining the extensive reasons this material is a strong fit for those wanting to help ensure safe, quality materials are used in healthcare applications, commercial kitchens, the hospitality industry and even residential kitchen and bath applications has been put together by ISFA, the only non-profit association that focuses on all premium countertop and surfacing materials. Both a more in-depth article version and briefer article version can be downloaded and freely disseminated.

Outlines of the benefits of solid surface, including its hygienic and health-promoting properties, versatility, safety certifications and ease of maintenance, among others, along with a variety of photos are available on the ISFA website at
 and also on the blog at, a well-known website that provides education and other services regarding the solid surface product.

“Solid surface is just one of the many materials ISFA members work with on a regular basis, and the association also has various programs underway for quartz surfacing, large format porcelain/sintered surfaces, natural stone and other premium materials,” said ISFA Director of Communications Kevin Cole. 

“The solid surface educational initiative is just one part of a larger plan to help our members educate specifiers in regards to the properties of all of the high-quality products they offer.”
