In addition, to allow easy consultation of the products, our portal has reserved a product section, organized by categories, where you can find out about the technical characteristics, materials and functionality of each product.

The range of Rauvisio surfaces in Rehau is enriched with new colours

Rehau presented several new products at Sicam and among them the updates to the Rauvisio range of surfaces.  
Rauvisio is the range of surfaces in super glossy polymeric laminate, glass effect, corrugated and in mineral compound widely used in the design of designer furniture. These surfaces are in fact a valid alternative to the traditional quality lacquered panel offering designers and manufacturers many creative possibilities for the creation of trendy furniture.


Rauvisio brilliant SR high gloss

The Rauvisio brilliant SR (Scratch Resistant) surface, characterised by a special protective coating, has been presented in the new high-gloss variant, in addition to the matt version. The solution proposed by Rehau offers high resistance to shocks, scratches and UV rays and allows the original appearance of the furniture to remain unchanged over time, even in environments subject to daily wear and tear such as the bathroom and kitchen. Three new colours proposed by Rehau that respond perfectly to current interior design trends: Cappuccino, Cemento and Zucchero metallic. The perfect combination with the Raukantex edging, compatible with the edging technologies with zero joint effect, allow to achieve an elegant homogeneous effect on the whole component.


Rauvisio crystal, the glass effect laminate

In order to overcome the limits linked to the processing of such a delicate material as glass, Rehau has developed Rauvisio crystal, the innovative thermoplastic polymer laminate surface.
The design of glass-effect furniture is enriched with new chromatic and decorative possibilities: Rehau has in fact presented the ultra-thin Rauvisio crystal slim surface in the new Piano colour, with a fascinating and intense dark shade, ideal for furniture fronts and wall coverings, both glossy and matt.
With Rauvisio crystal decor Rehau, on the other hand, extends the colour range with trendy shades that echo the textures of stone and wood grain through 12 different decors. Rauvisio crystal decor is ideal for creating furniture fronts, niches, sides and walls with a sophisticated design in line with emerging interior design trends. 


Rauvisio mineral, the versatile stone effect surface

Rehau also updates the Rauvisio mineral collection with new decorations. Rauvisio mineral is a resistant stone-effect surface with excellent processing properties and pleasant to the touch, which can be used in domestic environments as well as in offices, public places and hotels. Composed for 1/3 by acrylic resin and for the remaining 2/3 by aluminum hydroxide with colored pigments, the collection is expanded with Ivory decor, which recalls alabaster and marble to give a classic aesthetic, and with Cement decor to perfectly align with the latest design trends.
