Protection films for 2D/3D forming
The furniture industry and interior design have discovered a world of unlimited creative possibilities thanks to thermoplastic films and foils laminated or wrapped on an MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) substrate for the production of kitchen elements.
A new trend for matt panels
2D (flat lamination) and 3D forming (membrane and vacuum press) technologies offer new possibilities for shapes together with cost-effective industrial solutions for kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, bedrooms, offices and shop fittings.
In addition to high-gloss decorative surfaces, still considered highly stylish, the furniture market is increasingly asking for matt surfaces with the touch-and-feel “WOW” effect.
High-value furniture films and foils require premium quality protection solutions to withstand the whole process of fabrication of front material for furniture, ensuring perfect adhesion for sensitive high gloss, stylish silk aspects, as well as for the new super matt finish design.
Most of these decorative surfaces, based on PVC, PET foils and coextruded ABS/PMMA films, are now often covered with a hardcoat to provide additional features such as improved scratch and chemical resistance, and today, the anti-fingerprint effect of new stylish matt surfaces.
