Laminate plastics, lippings and protective edges for our table series are available in a multitude of materials and colours. The surfaces are impact- and abrasion-resistant, resistant to many chemicals and easy to clean. For hygiene-sensitive environments, the kuschmed® Hygienic-Line tables are coated with the material RESOPAL®+HIPERCARE®.

A special highlight in our standard collection is the nanotech material Fenix NTM by the Italian company Arpa Industriale which excels both in its technical properties and its unique soft-touch surface.

Material: FENIX NTM is a material produced by simultaneous application of heat and pressure (>7 MPa) in order to obtain a homogeneous non porous product with high density. 60% of FENIX NTM manufacturing process results from high -pressure thermo-lamination and 40% implies the use of nanotechnologies and processes. The core structure is composed of paper impregnated with thermosetting resins whereas the coloured external surface is made of decorative paper treated with next generation acrylic resins that are hardened and fixed with Electron Beam Curing process. FENIX NTM is made of paper (over 60%) and thermosetting resins (30 - 40%).
Abrasion resistance: EN 438-2:2016 - 200 cycles
Scratch resistance: EN 438-2:2016 :  5 Against microscratches: EN 438-2:2016 :  5.2
Fastness to light: EN 438-2:2016 :  4 
Cleaning: FENIX NTM surface should be cleaned regularly but does not require any particular maintenance. Almost all normal household cleaning products or disinfectants are perfectly well tolerated (household degreasers rinsed with warm water). For the daily cleaning, it is suggested to use a magic sponge. In case of dirt which cannot be cleaned with normal household detergents, due to the irregular topography and close surface of FENIX NTM, the use of non-aggressive aromatic solvents (acetone) is suggested. In case of micro scratches, please refer to the specific surface thermal healing instructions.
