Trespa’s advanced in-house technology offers the performance necessary to represent and maintain iconic brand imaging over the life of the building. Trespa® is a decorative high-pressure compact laminate (HPL) with an integral surface manufactured using Trespa’s unique in-house technology, Electron Beam Curing (EBC). The blend of up to 70% natural fibers and thermosetting resins, manufactured under high pressures and temperatures yields a highly stable, dense panel with an ideal strength-to-weight ratio. Trespa products also possess exceptional weather resistance. Testing shows no signs of deterioration during extreme weather conditions such as intense freeze-thaw activity, saltwater and air exposure, desert heat, and direct Florida sunlight. Trespa has proven to be beyond comparison for offering the best fade resistance, scratch resistance, and providing a graffiti-proof surface.
