SOFT TOUCH ELEGANCE
AND RECORD PERFORMANCE
IXTEX MATT is an innovative, soft–touch, matt lacquer finish.It’s achieved by means of an elaborate UV coating hardening process made possible by the particularly evolved technologies the company is now equipped with.
It adds a pleasant, silk-effect feel to the refined and modern elegance of the 3 gloss matt finish.
IXTEX MATT lacquers, applied to an MDF base, are available in 10 colours readily available in our warehouse. Moreover, on request come in a very rich variety of colours aligned with the demands of a furniture market that is ready to satisfy new trends as well as more widespread tastes.
AVAILABLE ON REQUEST
AVAILABLE IN THE SAME COLOURS AS THE PANELS.
On request, TPS can also supply different edging materials for doors made from IXTEX MATT, IXTEX WOOD and ILUX panels.
WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE
The ASA (Antibacterial Silver Action) treatment applied on request reduces the growth of surface bacteria in 24 hours by 99% thanks to a silver ion-based additive used in the coating cycle. Moreover, ASA guarantees that this anti-bacterial action lasts over time while leaving the characteristics of the finishes unchanged, including their high chemical and mechanical resistance.
Our surfaces are anti-fingerprint which means you can touch them without leaving a mark.
Abrasion and scratch resistance
The high abrasion resistance of our panels is tested by subjecting their surfaces to a cycle of 160 rubs using abrasive nylon/alumina material. Grade 5 scratch resistance – corresponding to a Newton force of 9 – is the highest that can be obtained and is proven by tests in compliance with the EN-15186 European standards that define a resistance to scratches deep enough to be easily seen on a vertical surface.
Any small scratches produced on the surface of our panels can be repaired using a quick and easy thermal process.
Tests performed by cutting-edge systems
The compliance of our products with high quality standards is proven by strict tests and quality controls performed using some of the most accurate optical and electronic systems in the world. Any panels with surface defects are automatically identified and immediately discarded.
High chemical resistance
Our surfaces are tested using strict processes to offer high resistance to class 1B chemical agents, according to the definition of the German
CEE DIN-68861-1:81 standard.
FSC® - PEFC – CARB certifications
The initial semi-finished MDF panels come with the FSC® certification or, on request, with the PEFC certification, both of which testify that they are made using wood from responsibly-managed forests or plantations. They are also CARB (California Air Resource Board) certified, based on the ATCM (Airborne Toxic Control Measure) regulation aimed at reducing and monitoring the formaldehyde emissions of wood-based materials used in California.
Very low VOC emissions
Our panels feature extremely low emissions of VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds), i.e. much lower than the minimum quantities normally requested by the furniture industry. VOC are hydrocarbons that – at normal room temperature – are present in a gaseous state. They can have an organic or anthropogenic origin.
Melamine or wood in the same colour/finish on both sides of the panel
The front side of our IXTEX MATT, IXTEX WOOD and ILUX panels is covered by a protective film. The reverse side is in the same colour and finish.
