skai Mattex S-Bronze - a timeless graphitegrey as extreme matt surface

Dark colors continue to dominate, especially black, but are there new tendencies noticeable?

Certainly there are -  grey colors - already very popular outside North America, they are now also starting their trend here, but slightly different:

skai Mattex S-Bronze - a very dark graphitegrey and as part of the Mattex program with its distinct extreme matt surface, which we will showcase at the Glassbuild booth

skai Mattex – extreme matt with added value

With skai Mattex, Continental presents a new exterior surfaces program that inspires the market with an extreme matt in laminated surfaces. It has a gloss level of 2. This innovation  perfectly replicates the look and feel of powder-coated aluminium with a particularly fine, yet concisely structured surface. Due to the extremely matt finish, the surface has a very high-quality appearance, an impression that is intensified when touched. The surface is particularly scratch resistant due to its grain structure. In addition, it is sealed with a PVDF-layer resulting in a particularly low surface tension that makes it easy to clean. It is highly resistant to chemicals. Due to its high temperature resistance, it shows no gloss development during either welding or bending
