LEESBURG, VA  – FENIX, a nanotech matte material for vertical and horizontal furniture applications made by Italy's Arpa Industrial, will be distributed by REHAU as part of its surface solutions program. The technologically advanced surface material was developed using acrylic resins and electron beam technology to achieve a soft-to-the-touch, light-absorbing, “super-matte” texture.

FENIX NTM is described as abrasion resistance and can “heal” itself through thermal scratch regeneration. It is resistant to fingerprint marks, dry heat, mold, acid solvents and household reagents. It also has enhanced anti-bacterial properties make it a surface solution for healthcare and hospitality as well as offices, kitchens and bathrooms.

 “Not only is this material well ahead of the curve in terms of surface technology," said Dr. Thomas Troeger, director for REHAU’s furniture solutions division, "but its super-matte esthetics and wide range of application possibilities make it an important addition to REHAU’s line."  

Featuring a range of 11 colors and four pearlescent tones, FENIX NTM can be used for both horizontal and vertical surfaces. It is available in four different thicknesses including 0.9, 1.2, 10 and 12 mm.
