XT Gloss and PET High Gloss & Super Matt boards offers long-lasting colour that won’t fade with an improved mirror effect on the High Gloss and a luxury fingerprint-proof finish on the Super Matt.
PVC, the common material other high gloss and matte finish panels are constructed from are not as stable and environmentally friendly as PET. The plasticizers in the PVC create toxic fumes when burnt and they also migrate causing discoloration of other materials that they are in contact with. Plasticizers present in PVC can cause leaching. MIRLUX’s PET panels are safe, inert, non-toxic and chemically neutral. No off-gassing occurs during lamination of the PET roll stock to the MDF due to using a cold process with PUR (polyurethane) adhesive. Once MIRLUX is installed, the PET surface is hygienic, stain resistant and keeps its color when exposed to UV rays.
XT Gloss offers the ultimate mirror-like finish. Produced using 18mm thick MDF board with a 1mm multi-layer acrylic decorative laminate on the front surface and matched colour backer to produce a finished board with a thickness of 20mm. The result is a finish with a perfect mirror finish, unseen in the South African market. Suitable for medium-duty vertical applications, not advisable for horizontal applications due to high gloss finish.
