DEKODUR - bark cloth- Hochdrucklaminat

Discipline: Material

Discipline: Material

Das DEKODUR® - bark cloth® gives any room a noble
character. Its surface creates a high quality individual
optical appearance. As the nature of the product is
such that the structure is never quite the same, a
unique surface appearance is created with each high
pressure laminate. bark cloth® is produced from the
naturally regrowing bark of fig trees (ficus natalensis).
Sewing together the processed cloths creates the
material which DEKODUR® then converts into an
elegant laminate.
The bark cloth® surface, protected by varnish, oil or
overlay retains its natural appearance. No high
pressure laminate is the same. Each one has its own
character. For each application, the resulting surface
created by all laminates together produces a
harmonious overall appearance.
Depending on cloth and treatment, the colours vary
between strong beige and a dark brown. The seams
are a distinctive feature and indicate the natural
origin of the material. DEKODUR® bark cloth® gives
any room a warm high quality optical appearance.
