Nanotech Matte Material (NTM)
(NTM) is a laminated surface that is pressed onto a high quality engineered MDF core. It uses nanotechnology to achieve a matte finish that doesn’t show fingerprints and is very durable.
High Gloss Laminate
High Gloss laminates are created by laminating decorative paper to a MDF core then applying a high gloss finish to the outer panel and a matte finish to the inside panel.
High Gloss Acrylic Laminate
High Gloss Acrylic laminates are pressed onto a high quality super-refined engineered MDF core with PUR glue. The high gloss acrylic has a mirror-like reflective surface.
