Nanolaminate: Brad Ascalon, PK52, Kite table

Nanolaminate is made based on nanotechnology and a new generation of acrylic resin. With its low reflection the surface is extremely opaque, fingerprint repellent and it has a very nice soft touch. Nanolaminate is resistant to wear and scratches, easy to clean and has anti-bacterial properties.

High pressure laminate: CH417

Laminate is made of impregnated paper, which is then compressed under high pressure and at a high temperature. The surface is covered with a thin layer of transparent melamine that protects the underlying decorative paper which gives the laminate its color and structure. Laminate has a resistant surface which is easy to clean.

 Normal cleaning and maintenance

The surface should be cleaned regularly but no special maintenance is required. For daily use, wipe the table with a damp cloth rung out in warm water or a mild detergent.

Special cleaning

If there are stains that cannot be removed with normal cleaning products, a melamine sponge is recommended. The melamine sponge can be used dry as well as slightly moistened. It can also be used for normal, daily cleaning. Certain chemicals, brightly colored fruit juices, spices and similar stains can discolor the surface if they are left unattended for long periods of time and, therefore, should be removed as soon as possible.

Special consideration

Although the surface of nanolaminate and high pressure laminate is very durable, it must never be cleaned with products that contain abrasives, abrasive sponges or with unsuitable products such as sandpaper and steel wool. Avoid using products with high acidity or high alkalinity as they can stain the surface and leave marks. Do not use furniture polish or wax-based cleaners as they will add an adhesive layer to the surface. We recommend avoiding products containing sulfur for daily cleaning as they leave a film on the surface.
