What is RAUVISIO brilliant?

20+ Years UV Stability | Mirror-like Reflection | Double-sided Gloss


Experience vibrant color with RAUVISIO brilliant high-gloss for vertical surfaces.

Vibrant Color

Unlike competitive surfaces that use a clear top layer, we color match our PMMA top layer to the laminate. This not only adds depth, but also enhances UV resistance.

Seamless Edging Technology

RAUVISIO brilliant edgebands can be applied using standard edgebanders or further processed into REHAU LaserEdge™, then applied using the latest adhesive-free laser edging technology. The result is a seamless board that rivals solid surface materials and high-end lacquered finishes.

Perfectly Matched

The laminate, balancing sheet and edgeband are perfectly matched to each other, producing a high-quality finished board. combination of matching RAUVISIO surface and REHAU LaserEdge edgeband, the appearance of total seamless integration is created without a visible joint.

Looking for custom kitchen doors?

RAUVISIO brilliant is offered as individual matching components (laminate, balancing sheet and edgeband) or as finished, cut-to-size pressed boards with REHAU LaserEdge applied, making high-gloss available to any woodworking shop without investment in machinery.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is RAUVISIO brilliant?

High gloss laminate (HGL), comes in 0.8mm sheets or pre-laminated double sided HGL to MDF at ¾” finished thickness.

Is RAUVISIO brilliant suitable for horizontal applications?

RAUVISIO brilliant is suitable for vertical surfaces only.

What are the advantages of RAUVISIO brilliant to other high gloss surfaces?

RAUVISIO brilliant has superior colorfastness (resistance to yellowing from UV exposure) and superior reflective image quality (no orange peel). High gloss laminates, balancing sheets and edgeband are all perfectly matched.

Can RAUVISIO brilliant be laminated like HPL, or other laminates?

Technically yes, but the quality of high gloss surface will suffer. Any imperfections in lamination of high gloss surfaces will be visible, even if the imperfection is the thickness of a human hair. We strongly recommend only PUR lamination to achieve a perfectly flat high gloss surface. All of our pre-laminated boards are PUR laminated in a state-of-the-art clean room environment.

Can RAUVISIO brilliant be postformed?

RAUVISIO brilliant can be postformed with heat - best results when heated to approximately 95C. If the temperature is too low it may cause stress cracks, if the temperature is too high it can cause a wavy surface.

What can be used for edging?

To achieve the intended seamless “invisible joint” between the surface and the edge, REHAU LaserEdge should be used (applied with hot air or laser edgebander). REHAU offers both Mirror Gloss and V-Edge solutions. All of our finished components come with REHAU LaserEdge applied. We do offer matching edgebanding without REHAU LaserEdge, but it will not give the best results.

Does RAUVSIO brilliant have any directionality?

Only the metallic colors have directionality. When applicable, directionality is shown on the protective film with an arrow in the direction of the height/length. 

What size are RAUVISIO brilliant boards?

RAUVISIO brilliant boards come in 1300mm x 2800mm (51”x 110”) and are ¾” thick nominally.

Do RAUVISIO boards come in special packaging?

Boards are shipped on a pallet, sandwiched between top and bottom protective boards. The pallet is banded with polyester strapping, and plastic wrapped. 

Are custom colors available?

Yes, MOQ is 600 sheets, and lead-time is approximately 15 weeks (approx 5 weeks to customer approval, approx 5 weeks to produce, and approx 5 weeks shipping via sea freight). There is a onetime charge of for a custom color. 

RAUVISIO brilliant Cabinet Doors

What materials are used in REHAU Cabinet Doors?

All of our components are laminated onto the highest surface quality MDF available, laminated with PUR hot melt, and laser edgebanded with our matching REHAU LaserEdge. 

Do REHAU Cabinet Doors come with a warranty?

Yes, they come with a 5 year warranty. See warranty for details.

Will REHAU Cabinet Doors have issues in a kitchen environment?

Our finished doors and components are designed to withstand heat and steam from cook tops and dishwashers in close proximity. This is because the MDF core is sealed in from the elements by the PUR glue and the polymer functional layer of the edgeband. We have passed strict European AMK kitchen tests, which test temperature resistance, infiltration of water vapor, humid climate resistance, alternating climate resistance and long term heat storage (4 weeks at 122F (50C) temperature).

What are my options for end panels?

For end panels, the best option is to order finished end panels with the doors. If this is not viable, then full sized 0.8mm laminate sheets can be purchased separately.
