New kitchen construction materials

Appeared in the early 2010s, FENIX is an innovative material from the large family of high pressure laminates, developed and produced exclusively in Italy by Arpa Industriale. The material can be used for modern kitchens as countertops and doors, wall coverings, close to hob burners and even inside the sink.

The outer part of the material consists of a nano-technological surface. The treatments by nano-technological processes allow the FENIX® surfaces applied on the raw panels with minimum formaldehyde emission (class E1) and implicitly the FENIX kitchens to be:

  • Anti-Fingerprint
  • Hygienic, anti-bacterial, with anti-mold properties
  • Resistant to dry heat
  • Visual comfort (low light reflectivity, extremely matt surface)
  • Velvety to the touch
  • Waterproof
  • Impact and abrasion resistant
  • Repairable in case of micro scratches
  • Solvent resistant

FENIX NTM® BLOOM, natural and innovative.

In 2012, the ultra-matt smart material is enriched with the BLOOM range based on a new core technology, for which four new colours have been specially developed: Rosso Askja, Verde Brac, Azzurro Naxos, Giallo Kashmir, all with Bloom black core.

Arpa products are made of paper and thermosetting resins based on phenol. With BLOOM, lignin technology was introduced to significantly reduce the amount of phenol included in the resin. Lignin is a natural polymer, defined as the glue that holds wood fibres together.

This proprietary lignin-based resin offers sustainability and a “gain” for both the environment and customers, without implications in terms of quality and performance.

  • FENIX is an exclusive product of the Italian group ARPA Industriale, so there is no other manufacturer of this type of material.
  • Even though it is basically part of the HPL group of materials, FENIX (NTM and NTA) is processed only on specially designed production lines.

Pros and cons

  • The unmistakable super-matt appearance, the special properties offered by NanoTech technology.
  • Kitchen countertops require careful cleaning with each use.
