REHAU to Offer Exclusive Distribution of Italian-made FENIX NTM® Nanotech Matt Surface Material


FENIX NTM nanotech matt material for vertical and horizontal furniture applications.

LEESBURG, Va., June 23, 2015 – REHAU announces that it will distribute Italian-based Arpa Industriale’s FENIX NTM nanotech matt material for vertical and horizontal furniture applications as part of its surface solutions program. The technologically advanced surface material was developed by an international team of specialists using acrylic resins and electron beam technology to achieve a soft-to-the-touch, light-absorbing, “super-matte” texture.   

FENIX NTM is characterized by its abrasion resistance and the ability to “heal” itself through thermal scratch regeneration. It is resistant to fingerprint marks, dry heat, mold, acid solvents and household reagents. In addition, FENIX NTM’s enhanced anti-bacterial properties make it a surface solution for healthcare and hospitality as well as offices, kitchens and bathrooms.

"We are very pleased to be an exclusive distributor of FENIX NTM,” said Dr. Thomas Troeger, director for REHAU’s furniture solutions division. “Not only is this material well ahead of the curve in terms of surface technology, but its super-matte aesthetics and wide range of application possibilities make it an important addition to REHAU’s line of surface solutions, which now encompasses high-gloss, glass and matte,” he said.

Featuring a range of 11 colors and four pearlescent tones, FENIX NTM can be used for both horizontal and vertical surfaces. It is available in four different thicknesses including 0.9, 1.2, 10 and 12 mm. The material has received international recognition and awards including the Dwell on Design 2014 “Best Design Materials” award and the Interzum 2015 “Best of the Best” award for materials and surfaces.

REHAU is the exclusive licensed distributor for FENIX NTM throughout Mexico and in the US states of Indiana, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas and Wisconsin. In addition, REHAU will distribute FENIX NTM in 10 and 12 mm thicknesses in Quebec, Canada.
