Unilin Panels has introduced Master Oak to its portfolio – a new decorative surface that the company says 'looks and feels just like oak'. The new surface has been created thanks to technological leaps that have enabled Unilin Panels to add definition, detail and textures that go deeper so that it is more 'true interpretation of nature'.
At the heart of this innovation lies Unilin Timber Touch Technology, which has a new press plate that allows for 64 different depth levels for 20 times more texture than regular surfaces. The technology is also responsible for Master Oak's matt finish with almost absent shine levels for a natural ‘unfinished’ effect. The digital printing technology also ensures that Master Oak has more colour-play and depth, as well as better sharpness and contrast.
As well as the durability and value advantages of using decorative surfaces over genuine materials, Master Oak is also said by the brand to be a sustainable alternative, as it uses 100% recovered wood for Master Oak melamine-faced products.
Each of Master Oak’s six looks has been created by the company's in-house design team.
