1913年Herbert A. Faber及Daniel O’Conor製造出堅硬且不易滲透的薄片，取代了原有的雲母片（For-Mica）。直至今日〝Formica〞一字已成為美耐板、表面裝飾飾材的代名詞。除了美耐板外，富美家尚有金屬美耐板、抗倍特板、地板、人造石等，被廣泛運用在隔間、廚俱、櫥櫃等方面。也許，你可能不知道富美家；但，你已置身其中了。
Cincinnati, Ohio. 1913. Herbert A. Faber and Daniel O’Conor had an idea that revolutionized the materials industry. This amazing new material is flame-, moisture-, and heat-resistant, and serves as a substitute “for mica”, hence the name “Formica.” To this very day, the Formica brand stands for excellence in laminate and surfacing materials. Besides HPL, Formica also produces Decometal, Compact, as well as Flooring, Stone Surfacing materials, etc. All of them can be commonly seen in walls, kitchenware, cupboards, and more. While you may not have heard of Formica till today, you may already be living in a Formica home!
