Choosing your Solution

POLYMER laminated panels are available in HIGH GLOSS, SOFT TOUCH and the new DESIGN SERIES. They will add elegance to any design without breaking the budget. UV LACQUERED TFL HG panels provide a high level of gloss reflection with extreme scratch resistance, a pairing that is truly innovative. For a flawless smooth mirror-like finish free of any optical distortion, our ACRYLIC HG panels offer the closest thing to back painted glass at a fraction of the cost, not to mention easier to fabricate.

How it’s made ?

POLYMER HIGH GLOSS & SOFT TOUCH and DESIGN SERIES panels are made up of a premium quality MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) panel substrate that has been laminated, with a 0,30 mm decorative polymer film overlay or RTF (Rigid Thermoformable foil) using PUR adhesive (reactive polyurethane) that provides the highest structural bonding strength. UV LACQUERED TFL HG panels are manufactured by applying superior laser technology and 100% UV acrylic resin based decorative lacquer which is cured by UV (ultra violet) rays in a series of closed chambers. UV coating is a type of polish coating applied to an MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) panel surface with melamine impregnated layer. ACRYLIC HG panels are made up of a premium quality MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) panel substrate that has been laminated with a 0,7 mm to 1 mm scratch-resistant co-extruded polymer high gloss acrylic top layer using PUR adhesive (reactive polyurethane) that provides the highest structural bonding strength.
