New VEKA Substrate Advances CoolSkin Performance

3D Laminates have recently changed the formula of their revolutionary CoolSkin® product for the composite and panel door markets, with the introduction of a new VEKA substrate, which is designed to improve product consistency and longevity.

Following a period of exhaustive testing in both hot and cold climates, the new formulation will offer their customers a product with a realistic life span in excess of 25 years, which will be great news for respected companies such as Camden Frames, Endurance Doors, Panels Direct, Safestyle and Solidor. With the market for composite doors quickly changing from the imported GRP slabs from the Far East to UK manufactured solid core composite doors, 3D Laminates will be able to continue to supply its customers with a next day service from the main UK warehouse, which carries £1million in stock.

Bonded onto this new VEKA substrate will be the proven Cool Colors® foil from Hornschuch, which 3D Laminates have the sole rights to in the UK, ensuring that the CoolSkin® brands remains associated with high performance, long lasting composite and panelled doors. With 16 different woodgrains and 8 different colours, it’s already an impressive range and there are further plans to expand this during the course of 2016.

Mark Lofthouse, managing director of 3D Laminates commented: ‘The introduction of a new VEKA substrate is an important milestone for us as a business. It’s a technically better product that’s been tested to the extreme and with VEKA and Hornschuch as key partners for us, the future for our customers looks very good indeed, particularly given the success of the new generation of solid composite doors.’
