High performance nanotech materials for interior design.

FENIX®, the next generation of smart materials created by Arpa Industriale in 2013. For a range of horisontal and vertical interior applications, including kitchens, hospitality, healthcare, transportation, bathrooms and furniture. FENIX® is not only beautiful to look at, it is a high-tech material that is made unique by its characteristics including – thermally repairable superficial micro scratches and abrasions, anti-fingerprint, soft to touch, hygienic, durable, hydro-repellent.

FENIX® is created by undergoing a series of processes including multi-layer coating, use of nanoparticles and acrylic resins that are hardened and cured using an innovative Electron Beam process. When viewed under a microscope, you can see that the surface of FENIX® is uneven, a landscape of peaks and troughs. Rather than being reflected the light is diffused making FENIX® highly matt. Its non-porous, high performance surface allows dust, bacteria and water to simply wipe away with normal cleaning, making FENIX® hygienic and mould resistant.


Visit the FENIX® website for cleaning and maintenance information and videos > www.fenixforinteriors.com/en/maintenance. It will show you that you will be able to remove just about any dirt marks or stains. So that you are better informed; the acrylic nano-particles and the electron-beam curing process completely closes the surface of Fenix NTM. The nano-particles are smaller than bacteria and as such bacteria or anything bigger than that (atomically speaking) lies on top of the surface and thus is easily cleaned.

FENIX® has a high heat-resistance with heat actually being used to repair the surface should superficial micro-scratches occur. This is due to the dense grid of peaks scattered on the surface which have their own memory and are reactivated with the presence of heat, restoring the surface to its original appearance.
