The material test examines a wide variety of surfaces and materials

As part of the test series, 17 interior architects and architects tested Pfleiderer products in the Lintex Showroom in Berlin on 14 November 2018. At the start of the material test, Matthias Hiller (Studio OINK, Leipzig) and Volker Katschinski (dan pearlman, Berlin) gave multi-faceted insights into the world of surfaces and materials. The two architects presented material selection and specific material developments on the basis of current projects. Volker Niepel from Pfleiderer then presented the PrimeBoards and the weather-resistant compact laminate XTerior compact and showed the guests the potential of the products in detail. The participants particularly appreciated the high-gloss paint look and the extremely matt surfaces. The anti-fingerprint effect of the multicoated surface and the abrasion and scratch resistance were also well received in Berlin. There was also time during the afternoon for ideas and requests regarding new products still to be developed. The participants could well imagine combining the multi-layer, clear coating applied without pigmentation with other base materials such as chipboard or MDF - for an authentic perspective. We can look forward to developments from Pfleiderer. Here you can read the individual impressions of the interior architects and architects:

Anja Fickenscher, Sweco GmbH, Berlin
"In particular, the PrimeBoard Xtreme Matt convinces with its high-quality surface effect and machinability (milling of the surface). The anti-fingerprint surface and the lacquer look enable the design of optically high-quality furniture".

 Sara Gomez, Graft, Berlin
"I am very positively surprised by XTerior compact, as it offers us a real and affordable alternative to facing existing buildings. Prime - Board Xtreme Matt offers a very good surface for furniture that we design exclusively for our customers".

Katja Hettler, hettler.tüllmann, Berlin
"A competent and informative presentation of the product range with background information on history, manufacturing process and areas of application. The company is interested in new ideas and suggestions for improvement and is environmentally conscious in its production, sustainability is of great importance".

Agathe Osika, hartmannvonsiebenthal the brand experience company GmbH, Berlin
"I like the products. Above all, I appreciate Pfleiderer for trying to respond to the market and its needs. I find the Xtreme High Gloss and Xtreme Matt surfaces as well as the anti-fingerprint surfaces very attractive and aesthetic. The Uni decors are definitely convincing".

Tamara Palasch, Berlin
"I find XTerior compact absolutely successful in the white and grey shades! With the PrimeBoard, the white and grey shades have been chosen aptly and the high-gloss surface offers a good alternative to glass!".

Wencke Katharina Schoger, Reuter Schoger Architects Interior Architects BDIA, Berlin
"Above all, the Primeboard helps us to give furniture with coated surfaces much more fineness, feel and elegance at only a slight extra cost. The break-out-free millability offers design possibilities that we have not been able to use in this form so far."

Arthur Fischer, Arthur Fischer Architects, Berlin
"An enormous leap in quality - both in terms of appearance, feel and value! The improvement of the panels allows additional design possibilities".
