You ’ll need to search very hard to find a standard white HPL sheet in the Trespa® range. The variety of colours, patterns and structures is so large that there is actually no question of a ‘standard’ sheet. To keep track of the vast number of types of sheets, Trespa® has placed its products in different product lines. In this blog, we provide text and explanations for the various Trespa® Meteon®, Trespa® Izeon®, Trespa® Athlon® and Trespa® Virtuon® product lines.
Trespa® Meteon® is the product line for wall cladding and exterior applications. These sheets are available in a large number of standard colours and are also available in metallic colours. Trespa® Meteon® sheets are also available with Naturals and Wood Decor motifs. These sheets have a realistic print of natural materials, whether stone, ceramics or wood, and have a corresponding surface structure. With this product line, Trespa focuses explicitly on the aesthetic side of exteriors.
Trespa® Izeon® is intended for simpler façade finishes where ease of maintenance and longevity are important. These rock-solid sheets are available in a sheet thickness of 6 millimetres and can be supplied in two sheet formats: 2.13 by 1.42 metres (this sheet is coloured on one side) and 3.05 by 1.53 metres. This last sheet format can be supplied coloured on both sides. Trespa® Izeon® is available in 9 RAL colours.
Trespa® Athlon® is a high-quality design product line that has been specially developed for interior applications. Trespa® Athlon® sheets are available in two sheet formats: 4.30 by 1.85 metres and 3.05 by 1.30 metres. It is available in four thicknesses: 6, 8, 10 and 12.7 millimetres. Trespa® Athlon® sheets are printed on both sides and available in approximately 63 colours/patterns: the availability of these sheets varies from country to country. Athlon® sheets® are specially designed for project-based interior construction and are nowadays produced by sister company Arpa Industriale.
Trespa® Virtuon® sheets have been specially developed for hygienic environments that need to be frequently and regularly cleaned. This decorative sheet has a top layer formed by Electronic Beam Curing (EBC). The process makes the top layer extra hard and resistant to wear and preserves an as-new appearance throughout its life. Thanks to the EBC process, the top layers are smooth and dirt is not absorbed: this makes the sheets easy to clean or disinfect. Trespa® Virtuon® sheets are homogeneous in structure; when cutting or drilling, no black edges will become visible, as with the Trespa® Meteon® sheets. This allows elements such as switches and socket outlets to be sunk into the sheet. Trespa® Virtuon® is also available in a fire-retardant version. The maximum sheet size is 4.27 by 2.13 metres and it is available in four thicknesses: 6, 8, 10 and 13 millimetres.
