LEESBURG, VA -- REHAU is set to introduce its innovative RAUVISIO high-gloss surfaces line at IWF 2014. The line features two collections, RAUVISIO brilliant high-gloss surfaces and RAUVISIO crystal glass-design surfaces. Both surfaces can be fabricated using REHAU LaserEdge technology for a seamless, adhesive-free finish, allowing furniture designers to create the look of solid surface or high-end lacquered and glass-top finishes at a lower cost.
RAUVISIO brilliant high-gloss surfaces have a color-matched acrylic top layer that enhances color vibrancy and UV resistance. The laminate, balancing sheet and edgeband are perfectly matched to each other, producing a high-quality finished board.
RAUVISIO crystal glass-design surfaces provide the elegance of real glass in a lightweight, scratch- and impact-resistant polymer that can be cut and drilled during installation. Fabricated with the laser-compatible Visions Duo-Design edgeband, RAUVISIO crystal achieves a convincing glass-top design, recognized by the interzum award in 2013 for its high product quality.
RAUVISIO edgebands can be applied using standard edgebanders with traditional adhesive or further processed into REHAU LaserEdge, an innovative adhesive-free, non-PVC laser edging that is applied using the latest laser or hot air edgebanders for a seam-free board.
RAUVISIO is offered as individual matching components (laminate, balancing sheet and edgeband) or as finished, cut-to-size pressed boards with REHAU LaserEdge applied, making high-gloss available to any woodworking shop without investment in machinery. High-gloss pressed boards and edgeband are available through the REHAU Express Collection stock program. Cut-to-size pressed boards are produced to order with a short lead time.
This year’s REHAU IWF exhibit will also feature other advanced furniture surfaces and systems, including:
• Structure embossed edgebanding
• Tambour door systems in adjustable-size, ready-to-install kits
• 2014-15 Leading Edge Design Challenge, the second annual furniture design competition for students
