End + Edge Technology
End+Edge was developed out of a need that arose from our commercial clients. Restaurants needed a durable, chemical-resistant finish that required little maintenance. They also wanted a warm, natural-looking finish that was smooth to the touch, not a maintenance-intensive wax or a shiny, candy-coated poly finish that would flake off in a year. Our team worked closely with a local chemical engineering firm and developed our proprietary formula that was originally developed as a protective coating for the bottoms of oak railway cars. The result was End+Edge Technology, a specialized process resulting in high clarity, and a rock-solid matte finish. End+Edge is National Food Safety Certified, chemical resistant, waterproof, and UV and impact resistant. This finish is the finest on the market and is only available on Caribou products.
