PET

Polyethylene terephthalate is a modern, synthetic, eco-friendly and totally-recyclable material, which makes it sustainable and compatible for the environment. It is totally impermeable to water and water-based liquids and so is highly hygienic and resistant. The PET-covered door is made from certified MDF (compliant with US directives EPA TSCA TITLE VI) on which a PET polymeric sheet with a thickness of between 0.3 and 0.5 mm is applied, using special adhesives. The main features that differentiate PET from traditional plastic materials are its flexibility and excellent dimensional stability which make it durable over time. Its good resistance to heat, wear and thermal ageing make this product one of the most innovative and forward-looking materials. Being smart, yet discreet, PET is perfect for furnishing modern areas which seek a simple, yet refined style.

Technical data

PET, the acronym for polyethylene terephthalate, is a synthetic (plastic) material – without PVC – obtained from petroleum or methane gas only during the first cycle of production and can always be potentially recyclable. It is used mainly in the food industry, because it is extremely hygienic, for the production of bottles for drinks and food containers, and is 100% recyclable and therefore, eco-sustainable and eco-compatible. PET does not lose its fundamental properties during the recycling process, thus making it transformable and endlessly reusable for the manufacture of valued products. It is, therefore, a product that respects the environment, and does not produce harmful emissions on incineration: it only emits water (H2O), oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2). The transformation of PET allows energy savings of 50%, compared to new production.
PET surfaces are produced in different thicknesses thanks to a nanotechnology process which makes it resistant and suitable for use in the furniture industry. The use of “green” materials that respect environmental and end-user health issues has become a trend as well as an objective which the whole industry is embracing. PET has therefore launched a revolution/innovation in terms of production (with the use of new technologies) and in terms of cultural values: the production of eco-sustainable kitchens is, to all intents and purposes, an evolution that shows humanity and solidarity, also at a company level. A new frontier which all industries need to move towards, and not least because it is the only alternative to PVC, the most popular covering used by furniture manufacturers.
Advantages:

  • Polyethylene terephthalate is a modern, synthetic, eco-friendly and totally-recyclable material. It does not emit toxic substances into the environment during recycling, thus making it respectful of the environment and human health throughout its lifespan and regeneration.
  • It is particularly hygienic to use, which makes it extremely popular in the food industry and also in the cosmetic, medical and pharmaceutical fields.
  • PET furniture is fully waterproof and impermeable to water-based liquids and is, therefore, also stain-resistant.
  • PET doors are highly practical due to their resistance to impacts, scratches, stains, light and heat.
  • Being smart, yet discreet, PET is perfect for furnishing modern areas which seek a simple, yet refined style.
  • It provides quality at a very reasonable price, despite its high technical performance.

PET panels are used for the vertical items in furniture, thus for the doors on base units, columns and wall units. These doors are 22 mm thick, made from a certified MDF panel (compliant with US EPA TSCA TITLE VI), covered in PET polymeric sheeting, with a thickness of between 0.3 and 0.5 mm, post-formed on four sides with the inside lined in melamine.
The main features that differentiate PET from traditional plastic materials are its flexibility and excellent dimensional stability which make it durable over time. Its good resistance to heat, wear and thermal ageing make this product one of the most innovative and forward-looking materials.
There is a wide range of available colours so as to follow the most up-to-date trends in style: gloss and matt single colours and wood, mortar or marble effect finishes.

Maintenance

PET is a practical material, because it is synthetic and thus versatile from a use and maintenance point of view. Hygienic and non-absorbent, it is easy to clean with commonly-used products. As with all materials in the kitchen, it is nevertheless good practice to quickly remove any water, wine, coffee, oil or other liquids from the surface using a soft cloth so as to avoid any marks left by substances that are allowed to dry. When cleaning, use only a soft, microfibre cloth and a mild liquid detergent. Wipe over with a cloth moistened with warm water and dry with care. Do not use sponges, scouring pads and abrasive products, aggressive substances such as acetone, alcohol or detergents containing chlorine or bleach, strong degreasers, descaling products made with formic acid, drain cleaners or hydrochloric acid. In general, as with all synthetic/plastic surfaces, we recommend avoiding direct and repeated contact with heat sources and steam. We advise, therefore, the use of hood extractors at all times when cooking foods, the drying of any condensation and steam and the use of protective materials and saucepan mats before resting any hot items on it, including ovens and other appliances unless the parts in contact are insulated.
