AVONITE Solid Surfaces Invoke Comfort and Elegance in Bathroom
Florence, KY – Aristech Surfaces LLC has introduced its patent-pending ultra-formable solid surface – AVONITE® Flex. This innovative, thermoformable solid surface brings a refined look to sinks, baths, formed wet walls and other sanitaryware and bath applications. Recently launched to the Hot Tub and Swim Spa market, AVONITE Flex lends itself to the creation of elegantly designed products for the entire wellness sector.
Drawing from more than 25 years of production experience with AVONITE Solid Surfaces, Aristech Surfaces intends to stimulate demand for luxury in the bath sector. AVONITE Flex makes it possible to design a whole new kind of product. Developed around the idea of designing a material that is easy to produce, customizable and durable while also delivering the style, design and sensory appeal sought by today’s discerning homeowners, AVONITE Flex boasts superior chemical and stain resistance to withstand intensive cleaning regimes within the commercial application space. Its non-porous, bacteriostatic surface limits the growth of micro-organisms, making it a highly hygienic material.
AVONITE Flex delivers a broad range of functional properties. Available in sheets or rolls, the sheeting is 3.2 mm thick and is available in widths of up to 108 in. (2740 mm) and two colors: Alabaster Wave 8705 and Pure Alabaster 8701. It offers outstanding thermoformability and can be formed over the sharpest angles and hardest-to-reach recesses. Finally, AVONITE Flex is lightweight and easy to handle, transport and install.
As part of the AVONITE line of products, AVONITE Flex delivers the brand’s famous soft feel and signature texture. Like all AVONITE materials, it can be milled, machined, etched and even stamped. “The idea,” explains Group Marketing Director Jana Bartlett, “was to create a product that responds to the major demand for cocooning and high-end finishes; customers want their home décor to be inspiring and relaxing. With AVONITE Flex, we’ve successfully combined the comfort and sophisticated look of AVONITE for a range of applications that were not accessible prior.”
Finally, despite the innovative character of AVONITE Flex, Aristech Surfaces took care to ensure the material would not require manufacturers to invest in new equipment. It can be produced using existing conventional molds and vacuum forming systems and is easier to repair than acrylic sheets.
