Duropal XTreme Touch from Pfleiderer is the first high-pressure laminate to combine matt, robust surfaces and natural textures - and is thus perfectly in tune with current surface trends. With Duropal XTreme Touch, natural-looking stone and wood structures can be realised in supermatt for vertical and especially horizontal applications.
Duropal XTreme Touch features the product advantages of the well-known FunXTional Products from Pfleiderer:
- Reflective arm provided with anti-fingerprint effect
- Designed for vertical as well as horizontal application
- Improved cleaning properties compared to classic matt structures
- Even grease stains can be easily removed
- Extremely scratch-resistant and chemical-resistant
For the warm, velvety-soft feel, customers can choose between two structures for XTreme Touch: the Volcano stone surface and the Rustic Wood structure. In terms of decors, Pfleiderer presents diversity: all plain and printed decors are also available for XTreme Touch, with the exception of full-surface mother-of-pearl decors. There are thus no limits to creativity - as a worktop, table, furniture front, contract furniture or even as a door, Duropal XTreme Touch will arouse enthusiasm thanks to its haptic effects. The postforming capability of HPL, which makes it possible to completely sheathe worktop profiles, for example, is a further advantage for processors in joinery or industry.

The fact that the specialists for wood-based materials have developed a very special product with Duropal XTreme Touch has already been confirmed twice, as the new surface immediately received two design awards.
- "Winner" at the German Innovation Award 2022
- Red Dot Design Award 2022 in the category Product Design
"With our product innovation, we create a completely new haptic experience that is also a sensation visually," says Michael Schiebe. "This was recognised by the juries and we are delighted with the two awards. Furthermore, it was important to us that Duropal XTreme Touch also fits into our sustainability strategy. And we have also made sure of that: the material contains no nanoparticles and is already certified with the Blue Angel."
With Duropal XTreme Touch, Pfleiderer has succeeded in combining two trend themes for the first time: While on the one hand the demand for matt surfaces with a high utility value is increasing, natural textures are in demand at the same time. Duropal XTreme Touch is the first high-pressure laminate to combine these two properties in one product.
"Surfaces shape our perception with their visual and haptic effects," says Michael Schiebe, Sales Manager Trade and Contract Core West at Pfleiderer. "They make materials tangible and touch the senses. That's why we are very proud of our new product, which actually makes it possible for the first time to experience natural-looking stone and wood structures in Supermatt for vertical and especially horizontal applications."
Our innovative XTreme products inspire with their noble appearance, a warm, velvety feel and the tangible anti-fingerprint effect*.

Responsibility for tomorrow begins today
At Pfleiderer, we want to do full justice to the environmentally conscious "green" material wood. That is why we have been offering an extensive range of low-emission and environmentally friendly products for many years. Sustainability - ecological, social and economic - as well as the careful use of natural resources are unshakeable pillars of our company philosophy.
Through the multi-stage use of wood (so-called cascade use), wood recycling and the use of thinning and industrial waste wood for high-quality materials with a long service life, Pfleiderer conserves valuable resources and actively contributes to the reduction of carbon emissions, air, water and soil pollution as well as to the reduction of energy consumption. We control the wood mix individually for each product in order to achieve the perfect balance between quality requirements and resource conservation.
Made by life - How Pfleiderer translates trends into surfaces
How do trends develop? And how does a trend become visible in a particular design, a piece of furniture, a decor? As one of the leading wood-based materials manufacturers, Pfleiderer deals with these questions every day - and has found some answers with its new decors.
Sustainability: Outstanding performance certified by independent rating agency
Sustainability is a central topic for Pfleiderer, which we are pushing forward with strategic emphasis. It is important to us that all measures taken are traceable via certificates or rankings and that their effect can be proven. Now we have received another important confirmation.
Film off: consistent circular economy in the use of natural resources
The world must become more sustainable, resources must be conserved and climate change must be stopped. The right materials make an important contribution to this.
