With skai® Mattex, Continental will present an innovation in the area of single-color exterior surfaces, which will create new inspiration in the market.
Visually, skai® Mattex doesn’t just follow the ongoing matt trend. Rather, we will be presenting the mattest matt that is available on the market for laminated surfaces. The extreme matt surface has a gloss level of 2. This innovation is the result of a development process, the goal of which was to perfectly replicate the look and feel of powder-coated aluminum with a particularly fine, yet concisely structured surface.
In reality, a vinyl window laminated with skai® Mattex is indistinguishable from a window with powder-coated aluminum cladding. Due to the extremely matt finish, the surface looks very high-quality. When the surface is touched, this impression is reinforced.
The surface is particularly scratch resistant due to its newly developed grain structure. In addition, it is sealed with a PVDF layer. This is characterized by a particularly low surface tension and is therefore easy to clean. At the same time, it is highly resistant to chemicals. Due to its high temperature resistance, the PVDF layer shows no gloss development during either welding or bending.
