The well known linen is actually finely woven cotten cloth. Micarta® also is made with fiberglass and other exotic materials. Because it might contain fiberglass or other materials which would ruin your lungs when reduced to dust and breathed in, even through a mask: you should NEVER use salvaged laminate materials unless you KNOW they are safe.

International Paper decorative products division make a paper micarta and label it as such.
Is this company owned by Westinghouse? I would really like to see the label. Would you scan it and post it where it can be seen? Many thanks, A. G.
