Once again this year, Plasnor exhibited at the INTERZUM Fair in Cologne (Germany) between 21 and 24 of May 2019. With 1,805 exhibitors from more than 60 countries and a record figure of 74,000 visitors, 75% of whom came from foreign countries, it is the Fair in the furniture sector with the greatest worldwide impact.
Thus, it was the ideal showcase for the presentation of the new range of products developed by Plasnor.
New Premium Acrylic
Maximum scratch resistance on non-lacquered surfaces.
With the launch of the new product generation Premium Acrylic by Plasnor, we have reached maximum scratch resistance on non-lacquered acrylic surfaces, which doubles the scratch resistance of the standard quality on the market. Just after removing the protective film and without the need to wait for a surface curing process, the the material achieves the highest levels of scratch resistance. The different tests carried out in independent laboratories to verify scratch resistance (1.2N, 6H Pencil Test, 6mg Abrasion Test) confirm that the level of scratch resistance is much greater than market standards of other non-lacquered acrylics.
The new Premium Acrylic category is available for all our colours in our catalogue (more than 50 in total) among which it is worth highlighting the high quality of the gloss ad the mirror effect, which cannot be compared to that of other technologies.
As if that wasn´t enough, unlike the lacquered finishes, the material is post-formable and the joint of the sheet with the edge can be polished in a way so that the joints are not noticeable. This makes it possible to manufacture integrated handles and ensure that the finish is perfect.
The aesthetic of glass with the properties and benefits of Acrylic high gloss
In addition to the already impressive mirror effect of our Premium Acrylic sheets, Plasnor is adding the product Crystal Acrylic to its range. This new product inverts the proportions of ABS and PMMA, thus achieving greater depth in our sheets and providing them with a glass-effect.
The glass aesthetic is in fashion, it adds modernity and a high-end quality to the surface finish of kitchen, office, bedroom furniture, etc.
These are the main benefits in relation to the use of conventional glass:
- 50% Lighter
- Greater impact resistance. Fewer breakages
- Easy processing with carpentry tools
- Less manufacturing waste
- Easy to clean
Launch of 10 new colors
Do you want to know which colours will be fashionable in coming years?
At Interzum, Plasnor presented the 10 colours that will really stand out in the coming years in the furniture industry.
Following the trend of the main markets and international manufacturers, whites, browns and greys will not disappear, but the use of a wider range of colours has gained ground in recent years. This has provided an opportunity for new colours and the combination of them to achieve modern and up-to-date kitchens.
All of these colours are also available in Premium Acrylic quality.
After the monopoly of white in kitchens, colour is finding its place year after year. Blues and greens such as Denim and Fjord are forging a path among earthy colours, or derivatives of grey or black, which remain in the top spots among the most used colours in kitchen furniture. Combining them with natural elements such as wood, will be the finishing touch for an ideal kitchen.
Black and its shades, such as Indigo, Graphite, Dust grey, and Onix grey are always associated with a cosmopolitan aesthetic and fashion-proof elegance.
