Group Formed To Serve Solid Surface Sector

Hillsborough, NJ A new organization aimed at the thermoset solid surface products sector has been formed by a consortium of manufacturers, suppliers and others allied to the field, the group announced.

The new organization, called the Thermoset Solid Surface Council (TSSC), announced its formation in December of 2002. The trade group's headquarters is located in Hillsborough, NJ.

"With confusion over definition, benefits and aesthetic qualities, thermoset solid surface products now have an entity to educate, promote and support the essence, qualities and benefits of these products," commented TSSC organizer and spokesperson Lee Richard Jani.

Jani added that the TSSC will also "foster a better understanding of solid surface ingredients, materials and finished products."

The solid surface industry has been served by two trade associations the International Solid Surface Fabricators Association (ISSFA) and the International Cast Polymer Association (ICPA). While the two associations have differed in the past regarding the issue of performance standards for solid surface materials, leaders have met recently in an effort to bring the organizations closer together.
