AVONITE Flex: The Definition of Comfort and Eelegance for Sanitaryware Trends

Aristech Surfaces LLC is pleased to introduce two new shades to its AVONITE Flex Collection. This innovative, thermoformable solid surface gives a refined look to sinks, baths, formed wetwalls and other sanitaryware and bath applications. Recently launched to the hot tub and swim spa market, AVONITE Flex fully lends itself to the creation of elegantly designed products for the entire wellness sector.

The new shades are:

Euro White 8704 is inspired by the most popular color in European sanitaryware applications. It captures the clean, sophistication of a cool-toned white, perfect for both residential and commercial bath applications.

Pure Ebony 8702 is inspired by the latest in bold trends for premium finishes in sanitaryware applications.

For 50 years, Aristech Surfaces has partnered with customers to provide a broad range of surface and design material solutions, providing the highest quality materials with maximum performance and premium aesthetic qualities. Drawing on its experience of over 25 years producing and pioneering with AVONITE solid surface, the American multinational plans to invigorate the demand for luxury within the bath sector. AVONITE Flex indeed makes it possible to design a whole new kind of product. It was developed with the idea of combining two worlds that had seemed irreconcilable until now: on the one hand, the realm of sanitary applications, invested in materials that are practical and comprehensively designed to meet the needs of B2B clients – easy to mass-produce, customizable, durable; and on the other hand, the realm of interior design with its sensual materials – elegant, pleasantly warm to the touch, offering unlimited design characteristics, geared to private customers looking to give their home an additional element of comfort without sacrificing style.

AVONITE Flex boasts superior chemical and stain resistance allowing it to withstand intensive cleaning regimes within the commercial application space. Moreover, its nonporous, bacteriostatic surface limits the growth of microorganisms, making it a perfectly hygienic material.

AVONITE Flex is a new formulation in solid surface offering all the most sought-after functional properties: supplied in sheets or rolls, the sheeting is available in 3.2/4.0/5.0mm calipers and is available in widths of up to 108 in./2740 mm. The collection includes four boutique colors: Euro White 8704, Pure Ebony 8702, Pure Alabaster 8701 and Alabaster Wave 8705. It also allows for outstanding thermoformability, able to be formed over the sharpest angles and the most hard-to-reach recesses. Finally, AVONITE Flex is lightweight, making it easy to handle in the workshop, in transport and during installation.

Drawing on our experience with designer materials in a range of finishes, Aristech Surfaces LLC created AVONITE Flex with a luxurious, soft matte finish. As part of the AVONITE line of products, AVONITE Flex naturally offers the brand’s famous soft feel and signature texture. Like all AVONITE materials, AVONITE Flex can be milled, machined, etched, and even stamped. “The idea,” explains Group Marketing Director Jana Bartlett, “was to create a product that responds to the major demand for cocooning and high-end finishes; customers want their home décor to be inspiring and relaxing. With AVONITE Flex, we’ve successfully combined the comfort and sophisticated look of AVONITE for a range of applications that were not accessible prior.”

Finally, despite the innovative character of AVONITE Flex, Aristech Surfaces LLC was careful to design a material that would not require manufacturers to invest in new equipment. It can be produced using conventional molds and vacuum forming systems with no additional investment required. Moreover, the material is easier to repair than acrylic sheets, making it even more durable.

AVONITE Flex – the perfect synergy of maximum functionality and progressive design.
