Awards

The Red Dot Design Award is an international design competition. The corresponding “Red Dot” award has established itself internationally as one of the most sought-after quality seals for good design. To assess the diversity in design properly, the award is divided into three disciplines: the Red Dot Award: Product Design, Red Dot Award: Communication Design and Red Dot Award: Design Concept. Each competition is organised once a year.

Due to the high quality of the participating field, the Design Council also awards a Special Mention. This award acknowledges work whose design has particularly successful partial aspects or solutions – a title that honours the commitment of companies and Designers.

Special

  • For decors, see Duropal XTreme stock collection. Other decors possible on request.
  • FSC certification or PEFC certification available on request.

Colour and surface match

  • Decor, structure and core board all influence the final appearance of the end product.
  • Due to the product-specific differences in production technologies, even identical decor/structure/core board combinations can result in slight optical and tactile deviations across different product groups and formats. Such deviations do not constitute a defect.
  • The choice of surface structure in particular has a significant influence on the visual impression, the tactile perception as well as the technical characteristics of the product. Thus, the overall impression of a decor can change almost completely depending on the surface structure. Furthermore, mechanical influences on the product surface can lead to a higher contrast optical perception with dark decors.
  • To ensure that you always achieve the best results with our products and to clarify any deviations in advance, we will be happy to advise you individually.

Product handling

Processing

  • For the production of flat-bonded panels we recommend a symmetric construction. This means both sides should be identical HPL. If backing material (also HPL) is used, there is a risk of bowing.
  • Sufficient conditioning is required prior to installation and assembly. The premises themselves need to be at the normal climatic conditions in which the material will later be used.
  • Especially for large applications, we recommend paying attention to the colour and texture unifomity of the boards and cut products used when further processing and installing and that the production direction is taken into account.
  • We recommend carrying out your own tests depending on the respective application and material requirement.
  • For further information, please refer to our "Duropal XTreme” use and cleaning recommendation.

Machines and tools

  • Can be worked with carbide (HW) or diamond (DP) tipped tools on conventional woodworking machines.
  • For further information, please refer to our "Duropal XTreme” use and cleaning recommendation.

Storage, handling and transport

  • The material must be stored flat, level and horizontal on clean surfaces at normal climatic conditions (Temperature 18–25 °C, relative humidity 50–65 %).
  • Protect from moisture and wet conditions.
  • Avoid direct exposure to heat and any possible dehydration of the surfaces by light- or heat radiation or by air currents from heating- or air conditioning systems.
  • Avoid exposure to direct sunshine or UV rays, especially of products covered in film.
  • The stack must be weighed-down with a cover panel.
  • These storage conditions must continue to be ensured after removing panels from the stack.
  • Vertical storage is not recommended.
  • Please note that incorrect storage, regardless of its duration, may cause irreversible distortion to the sheets.
  • Foreign bodies or impurities in the pallet of sheets can lead to impressions and damage to the surface of the board.
  • Sheets / boards must not be moved against each other; they should be moved individually by hand or with suction equipment.
  • Ensure that sufficiently large and sturdy bases, e.g. pallets, are used for the transportation of stacked sheets. The sheets on the pallet must be secured against slipping.
  • To protect the high-quality surface Pfleiderer delivers Duropal XTreme with a protective foil.

Health and safety

  • Please wear the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) when processing and handling.
  • Provide adequate extraction when splitting/sanding.

Cleaning and care

  • The surface can be cleaned with water and gentle cleaning agents.
  • In case of stubborn dirt, the cleaning solution should be given the opportunity to take effect. The damp surface is then wiped down with hot, clean water until all residues of the cleaning agent have been removed. Rub dry with a dry, lint-free cloth, uniformly in one direction, to avoid smearing or streaks.
  • Cleaning products, cloths or sponges with abrasive ingredients, e.g. scourers, should not be used under any circumstances.
  • So-called ‘balm’ products (skin-friendly washing-up liquids etc.) are unsuitable for cleaning as they contain substances to protect the skin that leave a film on the surface that is difficult to remove.
  • Any contact with aggressive cleaning agents and lime scale removers – if they have to used at all – should be kept to an absolute minimum. Drips and spills must be wiped up immediately.
