Everlife™ by Innovative Stone® ANNOUNCES NSF CERTIFICATION



HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. (February 2009) – Everlife by Innovative Stone has announced its recent NSF® International Certification. This certification states that natural stones having polished finishes protected by Innovative Stone’s PermaShield™ technology meet the material standards for cleanability according to NSF-51.

The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) provides industry standards for food equipment and testing to ensure kitchen products – such as Everlife countertops – are safe and sanitary materials to be used in high-traffic food service areas like restaurants. PermaShield™ anti-stain technology allows NSF to issue its certification to the only natural stone countertop offering meeting the criteria.

“We are honored to receive the NSF certification as it’s a testament to the years of extensive research and production that went into developing our PermaShield™ technology, which protects each countertop surface,” commented Karen Pearse, founder and CEO of Innovative Stone.

“Builders, interior designers, chefs and restaurant managers no longer have to choose between safety and design. Our luxurious Everlife offering of resplendent colors allows designers to focus their efforts on creating visionary designs while being ensured the highest level of safety,” she said.

Everlife countertops are protected by PermaShield, a proprietary process that covers microscopic staining paths below the surface of granite or natural stone material. These paths are infused with molecular technology causing them to adopt water and oil-repelling properties. As a result, PermaShield protects the countertop surface from harmful elements.

NSF® International, founded in 1944 as the National Sanitation Foundation, is known for the development of standards, product testing and certification services in the areas of public health, safety and protection of the environment. NSF® Certification programs are accredited to the international standards through the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Standards Council of Canada, assuring the highest level of integrity, quality and acceptance.

In addition to the NSF certification, Everlife has received industry certification by the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI). For more information on Everlife, visit www.everlifestone.com or call 1-800- 627-8663

What you should know about selecting your slabs


Can I view my Everlife™ granite slab prior to fabrication? Due to the variation found in natural stones, in-person slab views are encouraged and may be coordinated by your local Everlife™ dealer, through their corresponding slabyard. This not only assures that you are pleased with the color you have chosen, but may give you the ability to select the precise slab you desire prior to countertop fabrication and installation.
