Exterior Compact HPL Facade

PANELEX is a laminate manufactured from cellulose fibers impregnated with thermosetting resins, compressed under high pressure and temperature. During the process, the resins are cured and the material is compacted into a monolithic plate that becomes inert. This provides the material with excellent physical, mechanical and structural properties that make it a high performance material.

PANELEX has more than 120 possibilities consisting of solid colors, wood grains, and patterns, complete with UV filters which ensure the stability of their colors and appearance. Its sealed surface has nonstick properties, which prevent dirt accumulation and facilitate self-cleaning. Subject to conditions of outdoor environments it is highly resistant to pollutants, sunlight, ultraviolet radiation, large temperature changes, extreme cold and water in outdoor conditions.
