Rehau Rauvisio ingrain™ Wood Fiber Laminate Debut at IWF 2022


September 1, 2022 | Press Release

REHAU announces its surface line, RAUVISIO ingrain™ wood fiber laminate, that combines natural wood fibers with synchronized etching for a luxurious veneer aesthetic.

New to the North American market, wood fiber laminate is cellulose fibers derived from wood pulp bonded using vegetable-based adhesives, resulting in a high-performing, sustainable surface. With high-definition printing and precision REHAU LaserEdge™ duo-gloss embossing, the immersive patterns of RAUVISIO ingrain deliver an atmosphere of eco-conscience luxury to designed spaces.

The RAUVISIO ingrain line is available in 15 colors of PSA laminate and edgeband as well as double-sided boards, finished panels and modern cabinet doors. The wood-fiber paper is crafted in Italy, laid-up stateside on a particle board core using PUR glue and seamlessly finished with REHAU LaserEdge™ for a monolithic effect. Grain-matched panels with expanses up to 47 in by 119 in (119 mm by 302 cm) are also possible.

Synchronized etching, the new, proprietary technology used in RAUVISIO ingrain, adds visual dimension to a wood-fiber pore by applying a patterned matte and low gloss finish. It delivers the soft, crisp graining of a veneer, without the overcompensations typical of melamine embossing. On REHAU LaserEdge, this technique known as duo-gloss, recreates each laminate color using a precision embossing pattern for a visually seamless surface-to-edge transition.

“Textured melamines have printed designs that are then subjected to a resin bath causing the image quality to become diluted. The resulting finish is typically glossy and artificial,” explained Scott Blaire, senior product engineer at REHAU. “RAUVISIO ingrain maintains a high-definition print because its finish is applied by a proprietary print-roller process in a unique matte and low-gloss texture that matches the grain pattern. To match this high-definition effect in REHAU LaserEdge, our color-match artisens have advanced our edgeband technology with complex designs that use patterns in the color, gloss and embossing.”

Crafted from organic materials, the laminate is free of melamine resins, formaldehyde, phenol and solvents, making it especially suitable for spaces that prioritize health and wellbeing in addition to sustainability. The extreme flexibility of the RAUVISIO ingrain PSA laminate makes it ideal for expansive interior vertical design elements, including curved walls and soft 3D applications, and opens the potential for low-temperature application using widely available adhesives.

RAUVISIO ingrain is a step up from melamine, offering superior heat and moisture resistance. Because it is 3 times thicker than melamine, it has more depth to create a tighter seal between surface and edge. The engineered natural material is an economical choice, eliminating the labor-intensive finish work of real veneer and coming in at one-third of the cost of prefinished veneer.
