Processing and protective films for 2D/3D forming

2D and 3D foils are thermoplastic laminates applied as decorative surfacing for raw Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) using a thermoforming process for the fabrication of furniture elements in 2 or 3 dimension shape. 

The flexible process for furniture 

2D (flat lamination) and 3D forming (membrane and vacuum press) technologies offer new possibilities for shapes together with cost-effective industrial solutions for kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, bedrooms, offices and shop fittings.

High-value furniture films and foils require premium quality solutions to withstand the whole process of fabrication, ensuring perfect adhesion for sensitive high gloss, stylish silk aspects, as well as for the new super matt finish design.

Premium films for anti-fingerprints surfaces

Most of the decorative surfaces, based on PVC, PET foils and coextruded ABS/PMMA films, are now often covered with a hardcoat to provide additional features such as improved scratch and chemical resistance, and today, the anti-fingerprint effect of new stylish matt surfaces.  

Novacel, as the pioneer and market leader in the furniture industry, has developed special high-quality and low-gel content films coated with dedicated high-performance adhesive using visual assistance from our inline cameras, to provide the safest covering for these highly esthetic skins used in kitchen doors and drawers.
