3D Laminates, also known as rigid thermofoils (RTF), can be membrane-pressed to flat or contoured surface profiles. This eliminates the need for T-molding, edge-banding, visible seams, and special edge treatments. Membrane pressing is a viable alternative to many traditional surface applications. With its 3D capabilities and the “no edge” look, membrane pressing expands design options.
Used in store fixtures and POP (point of purchase) displays, medical industry fixtures and cabinet components, 3DL is ideal for anyone who wants the three-dimensional capabilities and soft, rounded, seamless edges that membrane pressing offers. 3D laminates are resistant to chipping, cracking or breaking making them a popular choice for retail store fixtures. In addition, their application seals the core panel substrate from bacteria and moisture, which make them an increasingly popular choice in healthcare settings. Due to their ability to wrap around custom shapes, edges and contoured surfaces, designers often specify 3DL materials for POP displays, commercial hospitality components, office furniture and door/drawer fronts for cabinetry.
