AE Core - The Alternative Laminate

Added 06.28.17

Advanced Technical Panels, part of the James Latham Group, has just announced that it has become the exclusive UK and Eire distributor for AE Core, an inspirational new collection of innovative thermoplastic laminate, boasting a number of unique advantages in just one material.


What is AE Core?

A completely new and alternative concept in decorative laminate, as well as exceptional post-forming properties, AE Core offers outstanding high wear resistance, a fire-retardant rating and a solid core.
Created and manufactured in the worldwide capital of design, Milan, the range comes in countless finishes, from traditional, beautiful and realistic wood grains to metal and mirrored effects, making it the ideal material for covering almost any internal or external surface.
Easy to cut and machine with conventional woodworking machinery, it will flex and form curves with very little resistance and it is also easy to post-form without the need for specialist machinery, plus, because it has a solid colour throughout the core, you don’t get unsightly joint lines.
Andrew Laverick, Product Manager for Advanced Technical Panels explained, “The extensive AE Core portfolio compliments our existing decorative surface offering perfectly.  One of its distinctive characteristics is its extreme versatility. Available in a wide range of surfaces, designs and colours, AE Core is fully customisable according to the project, thanks to innovative techniques such as OLED 3D printing or the embossed-in-register technology, which enhances the wood effect.
“And because it resists scratches, moisture and heat, the applications are almost limitless making it perfect for kitchen, bathroom and bedroom furniture in residential environments, as well as retail, hospitality, education and commercial spaces, plus, thanks to the possibility of bactericidal surfaces, it is also suitable for healthcare sector.”
