Trespa’s Versatile and Vibrant Athlon Panels

Were you in the contract or hospitality venue, what would you do to assure high performance and good longevity of your walls in environments habitually susceptible to vandalism, hazardous spills, or impact of vehicular traffic? If this sounds like the kitchen on an average evening in typical Middle America, it very well may be, but it’s more likely the demanding venue of an office, hospital, or school—the perfect spot to display the virtues of Trespa’s Athlon Panels.

Trespa’s Athlon Panels are Resistant to Impact, Scratch, Wear, Moisture, and Fire

Sad to say so, but the above descriptors might accurately characterize the routine assaults on the infrastructure at any public school, so administrators at those institutions might be wise to investigate Athlon’s virtues.

Beginning with the product’s material make-up, interested parties would find a solid, homogenous core with a melamine-resin exterior. The combination renders Athlon impervious to all manner of impact—not only the aforementioned bumping of walls but also the routine projectiles (wadded toilet paper and ninja stars in my day) found in classrooms as well as hallways.

Next, potential customers would be wise to inform themselves as to Athlon’s scratch and wear resistance. What they would find is that the surface’s scratch-resistant formulation passes muster in scientific furniture applications, thus suggesting it should be more than up to the task of repelling the usual indignities thrust upon it by high school students.

Lastly, users would be sure to see that Athlon’s high heat manufacturing process assures excellent performance of the integrated thermosetting resins, making the panels impervious to moisture, just as Athlon’s high density structure deeds exceptional heat resistance. In the case of fire, the material wards off damage up to higher temps than conventional materials: “the panel ignites at a relatively high temperature and carbonizes in a way similar to hardwood... it does not melt, drip, or explode and retains its stability for a long time.”
