Trespa Meteon is a flat panel based thermosetting resins, homogeneously reinforced with cellulose fibers and manufactured under high pressure and temperature. Using special techniques, the panels have an integrated, decorative surface with pigmented resins. These resins are cured using patented technology (Electron Beam Curing) which was developed by Trespa International B.V. The resultant properties make the product particularly suitable for a wide range of exterior applications.
