Perltec Base Superbo panels are creations based on natural cotton. Through a unique process, cotton is transformed into a solid, plastic-like material. This raw material is then coloured by hand with pigments and layered to form a large block. Thin, decorative sheets are sliced from the block and combined through glass composite technology with Optiwhite plates on both sides. The finished panels feature a 3-dimensional, ribbon-like surface.
The processing of the decorative sheets contained between the transparent glass plates is based on an over 100 year old tradition in manufacturing. Each panel is a one-off since, like a veneer, the decorative sheets are individually cut from a solid block made from layers of a hand-coloured, raw material. No two panels are identical – any kind of industrial mass manufacturing is impossible.
Perltec Base Superbo panels are suitable for both wet and dry areas of an interior and the design is usable on both sides. Standard panel sizes are 600 x 600 mm and 600 x 1200 mm, with a smoothed or polished edge. The standard thickness is 9mm with customised thicknesses available upon request. Lotus effect, mitre cuts, customer-specific glass forms and special glass colours are also possible on request.
