Attractive and Durable Designs

Trespa Athlon has established an excellent reputation for combining durability and beautiful aesthetics with design freedom in furniture and design applications.

Just as important, these material also meets the needs of the manufacturer for cost effective solutions. Trespa Athlon is easy to process and is well suited for applications requiring detailed design work and subtle finishing effects, meeting the needs of designers who wish to create a distinctive end product.

Impact Resistant

The combination of a solid, homogenous core with a hard surface based on melamine resins gives Trespa Athlon exceptional impact resistance. This is confirmed by its dayto- day practical use as wall cladding in public rooms and rooms susceptible to vandalism, sanitary cubicles or as bumper rails in hospital corridors.

Scratch and Wear Resistant

The special surface structure and durability provide excellent scratch resistance. Even in heavy-duty use, Trespa Athlon retains its appearance for a very long time. The panel is highly resistant to wear, making it ideal for installation where heavy use and frequent cleaning are expected. Trespa Athlon is commonly utilized in office or scientific furniture applications.

Moisture Resistant

Trespa Athlon is not adversely affected by moisture and is not susceptible to discoloration, mold or rot. Both the surface and the core are manufactured using specific, thermosetting resins, which make them impervious to moisture. The dimensional stability and workability of Trespa Athlon are comparable to those of hardwood.

Safe Fire Behaviour

Trespa Athlon is heat resistant. Due to the high density, Trespa Athlon ignites at relatively high temperature and carbonizes in a way similar to hardwood. The panel material does not melt, drip or explode and retains its stability for a long period of time. Authorized testing bodies throughout the world have confirmed that Trespa Athlon Fire Retardant grade (FR) panels fall within one of the most favorable fire classes.

The choice to use either standard modified panels or fire-retardant modified (FR) panels depends on the performance requirements of the building project. National and/or regional fire regulations are decisive in this respect.

Environmental Considerations

Environmental considerations play a significant role in the development and manufacture of Trespa panels. Trespa International was one of the first producers of panel material to be certified according to ISO 14001, awarded by Lloyd’s Register. The ISO 14001 standard describes the steps required for setting up, implementing, maintaining and improving a completely integrated environmental management system.
