Lasting performance for CoolSkin composites

Now nine years old, CoolSkin® technology has quite simply revolutionised both the panel door and timber-based composite door sectors, offering incredible levels of surface performance, whatever the weather.

Leading composite door pioneers such as Endurance® Doors and Solidor, specify CoolSkin® for the vast majority of their respective door colours and woodgrains, with the reassurance of a 10-year warranty and considerable testing across the climatic extremes of Europe.

The product harnesses a specialist VEKA substrate, along with a premium Cool Colors laminate foil from Hornschuch, one of Europe’s leading players in the sector. With exclusive trading relationships with both companies, the secret CoolSkin® recipe cannot be replicated by any other company in the sector, helping to preserve the technical foundations of the CoolSkin® development.

There are now eight different woodgrain finishes, along with nine solid colours and sheets can be mixed on rainbow pallets for ease of ordering. All of the laminate foils are a perfect replication of the foils used on PVCu window profiles, making for a far better finish, rather than having to rely on a poorly matching stained or embossed GRP skin.

Mark Lofthouse, managing director of 3D Laminates commented: ‘Nine years ago we promised to revolutionise the panel door and solid core composite door sector with a far superior door skin. Today I believe we have achieved that and the relatively recent introduction of a VEKA substrate will improve the performance characteristics of CoolSkin® further.

He continues: ‘Whether you are a manufacturer or installation company, make sure you ask for a PVCu door with CoolSkin technology, it’s the mark of a high quality PVCu door that’s designed to last.’

3D Laminates are a specialist company, offering an advanced foiled sheet product that’s been developed with CoolSkin® technology. The CoolSkin® technology is the result of a research and development programme with two global partners: VEKA for a newly launched PVC sheet substrate in 2015 and Hornschuch for their Cool Color film, which is laminated to the sheet. Each key partner is a leader in their respective field and the relationship with Hornschuch now goes back to 2002.

Within the product range there are a wide number of woodgrain and coloured options which are used by many of the leading door panel manufacturers such as GAP and Nice Door Panels and more recently the composite door innovators including Endurance® Doors and Solidor. CoolSkin® technology has quite simply redefined the UK door panel and composite door market.
