PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate)

PVC, the common material other high gloss and matte finish panels are constructed from are not as stable and environmentally friendly as PET. The plasticizers in the PVC create toxic fumes when burnt and they also migrate causing discoloration of other materials that they are in contact with. Plasticizers present in PVC can cause leaching. MIRLUX’s PET panels are safe, inert, non-toxic and chemically neutral. No off-gassing occurs during lamination of the PET roll stock to the MDF due to using a cold process with PUR (polyurethane) adhesive. Once MIRLUX is installed, the PET surface is hygienic, stain resistant and keeps its color when exposed to UV rays

MIRLUX Components


PET (Polyester – Polyethylene Terephthalate) film with a 10 micron SSR (super scratch-resistant) coating. The PET is co-extruded as .49 mm film that is roller laminated with PUR adhesive that results in a water-resistant seal that won’t delaminate and allows MIRLUX to have the smoothest surface possible.


Super smooth, low surface variance TSCA Title VI Certified medium-density fiberboard (MDF).


Hot Air edgebanding is applied without adhesive. Made of polypropylene, it melts and bonds with the substrate and fills in voids and pits to result in an encased, water-resistant seal. Super matte faces with matching edgebanding give the look of a continuous painted surface without cracking, peeling with an easy-to-maintain surface. Our high gloss edgebanding has a reflectivity of 91° and super matte a 4°.
