FENIX NTM surfaces are the result of technology, but its colours are inspired by nature.

Discover FENIX, the new generation of smart materials for interior design created by Arpa Industriale for a range of vertical and horizontal interior design applications and furniture.
With low light reflectivity, the surface is extremely opaque, anti-fingerprint and pleasantly soft to the touch. Superficial micro-scratches can be repaired thermally.

What is Fenix®?

FENIX NTM® - NanoTech Matt material- is an innovative product created for interior design.
Designed by Arpa Industriale, it combines elegant aesthetic solutions with state-of-the-art technological performance obtained thanks to the use of nanotechnologies and next generation acrylic resins.

The panel surface has unique properties such as: thermal healing of superficial micro scratches,
low light reflectivity thanks to extreme opacity, soft touch and anti-fingerprint feature.
The nanoparticles of the surface make it highly resistant to scratches and abrasion, as well as to stains thanks to the barrier effect and thermal healing of superficial micro scratches.
The structure of the nanoparticles used for FENIX NTM (nano dimension, below 100 nm)
are amorphous and not crystalline.

Thanks to the high technology manufacturing process, these nanoparticles are evenly distributed and
incorporated in a homogeneous way in the coating of the surface designed specifically for FENIX NTM. After hardening of the surface coating, the nanoparticles are fully integrated and fixed inside the coloured part of FENIX NTM. FENIX NTM is suitable for contact with food as there is no evidence
of substance migration from the material.

What is Fenix made from?

FENIX NTM is a material produced by simultaneous application of heat and pressure (>7 MPa) in order to obtain a homogeneous non porous product with high density. 60% of FENIX NTM manufacturing process results from high -pressure thermo-lamination and 40% implies the use of nanotechnologies and processes developed exclusively by Arpa Industriale and its partners.

The core structure is composed of paper impregnated with thermosetting resins whereas the coloured external surface is made of decorative paper treated with next generation acrylic resins that are hardened and fixed with Electron Beam Curing process.

FENIX NTM is made of paper (over 60%) and thermosetting resins (30 - 40%).

Interior Design Applications

FENIX, the nanotechnological material from Arpa Industriale, has revolutionised the world of interior design. It is not only beautiful to look at but, most importantly, it is also a high-tech material, made unique by its characteristics.

FENIX has these characteristics by undergoing a particular series of processes, including a multilayer coating and the use of next-generation nanoparticles and acrylic resins, which are hardened and cured through an innovative Electron Beam Curing process. This process makes the material anti-fingerprint, soft to the touch, opaque and extremely durable, so much so that it can withstand serious knocks and scratches, but also makes it highly resistant to the aggressive action of solvents and reagents typically used for household cleaning.

FENIX is also heat-resistant. Additionally, should the surface have superficial microscratches, heat actually helps to repair them. The surface of the material is scattered with a dense grid of crosspolymers with their own memory, which can be reactivated by the application of heat.

FENIX is also water-repellent, hygienic and resistant to mould. All of these make it a perfect surface for contact with food and very easy to clean.
