Back to Products

AE Core is an innovative thermoplastic laminate, an alternative to conventional decorative materials, which has been created specifically for the world of architecture and design.  Created and manufactured in Milan, and boasting a number of unique advantages in just one material, AE Core offers a fantastic range of finishes, from realistic woodgrains and stones to on-trend decors in the new super matt, anti fingerprint and repairable texture of Serica®; making it the ideal material for covering almost any internal surface.

AE Core takes the world of decorative laminate to a new level. The thermoformability of its polymeric foils offers greater freedom of design, both in terms of surfaces (colour and printed decoration) and in a three-dimensional sense.

With outstanding wear resistance, a fire-retardant rating and solid colour throughout, AE Core is perfect for a host of market sectors and applications: residential and contract furniture, kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, doors, exhibitions, hospitality, leisure, commercial projects, hotels etc.

The Serica® texture offers a warm, captivating and silky finish that gives surfaces a real ‘WOW’ effect, both to the touch and to the eye. Incorporating both anti-scratch and thermal healing technology, Serica® is extremely durable, plus this super-matt, low-light reflectivity finish is also anti-fingerprint. In the case of micro scratches, Serica® can be easily repaired by simply using an iron or hairdryer to renovate the surface (please click here to see the on the link to see the Serica® video).

In addition to the fantastic Serica® decors, innovative EIR (embossed-in-register) technology gives a depth that brings AE Core woodgrains closer to the look and feel of real wood. There are also the concrete looking ‘Metropolitan’ decors that mix design and texture to great effect.

Available in 22 stocked decors in a sheet size of 3050x1300x0.8mm, AE Core is exclusively available from James Latham in the UK and Eire. To view the list of key features, product literature or order samples please see below.
