TECHNICAL INFORMATION 

We are characterized by manufacturing products with various high-quality materials and by producing with various structuring systems according to the requirements of each of our clients.

MATERIALS

STRUCTURE

WOOD SOLID

Obtained from tree harvesting, specifically from the center of the trunk, which is the most resistant and massive part, is made up of cellulose fibers bound with lignin and beautiful typical of the tree of origin, giving it the title of unique material, such as cracks, knots and color variations. Over time, wood generally undergoes changes such as darker coloration, curves, twists, the appearance of cracks, etc.; Therefore, its drying treatment is essential for optimal quality and preservation.

RUBBERWOOD

Tropical hardwood obtained from the rubber tree. It is characterized by being a highly workable wood, light in color and easy to dye since it assumes uniform dyeing; It has a dense grain that is easily controlled in the kiln drying process, so it has very little shrinkage, making it one of the most stable construction materials available for furniture, toys, and kitchen accessories.

MDF VENEER

MDF is a reconstituted wood product, obtained by breaking down hard or soft wood waste into wood fibers that are combined with wax and resin binder, to form panels by applying high temperatures and pressure. Generally, a coating is applied to these panels that gives them a greater finish such as laminates, paints, lacquers and wood veneers that we call Veneer.  

AGGLOMERATE 

It is an engineered wood product made from wood chips or jute and a synthetic resin or other suitable binder, which is pressed and extruded. This type of board is very stable for construction, but difficult to mold for the furniture industry. The edges are difficult to paint, varnish and give a neat finish, so it is used for straight edges with straight veneers, generally in melamine furniture.

TEMPERED GLASS

Glass that has been heat or chemically treated to increase its strength, achieved by placing the outer surfaces in compression and the inner surfaces in tension, causing the glass to break into small, granular pieces that are less likely to cause injury compared to the jagged slivers left behind by untreated glass. Therefore, it is considered a security material.

METAL WOOD GRAIN

Finishing of a product that consists of applying a wood type print on a metal piece or structure chosen either for performance, durability or cost, giving a greater commercial appeal to the product by having a wood look. The process in simply words, consists of electrostatically coating the metal surface with powder paint and then subjecting it to high temperatures, giving it durability and protection against abrasion, corrosion and humidity. Subsequently, the surface is wrapped with a pre-printed transfer film which is vacuumed to get a complete adherence and finally processed by sublimation where the pigments are transferred.

FABRIC

Textile obtained by crossing and linking series of threads or fibers in a coherent manner by intertwining or joining them by different industrial procesess. They are characterized by being more less resistant, elastic and flexible sheets, which are commonly used for upholstery because they have great decorative advantages, because they have a wide variety of colors, design and type of material, but this material also presents some disadvantages of use since it is considered a delicate material about stains.

PU (POLYURETHANE) LEATHER

Textile created as a substitute for natural leather, imitating texture, color and shine, and can obtain different finishes, although it generally maintains even tones due to its synthetic colouring. On its back presents a woven sheet that supports the polyurethane sheet very firmly, giving it greater flexibility when torsion. Therefore, this material provides a soft and flexible seating surface, high abrasion resistance, durability and resistance to stains and also offers better breathability than PCV Leather. However, it is susceptible to direct sunlight and moisture, prolonged exposure to sunlight can make it brittle.

PVC (POLYVINYLCHLORIDE) LEATHER – ECOCUERO

Petroleum-derived textile material created as a substitute for natural leather, on its reverse it presents agglomerate material, therefore it is not as flexible as PU Leather, which has woven material on its back, since this agglomerate has no memory has less elasticity. This material is durable, inherently flame resistant, and has relatively better resistance to cleaners and disinfectants than PU Leather.

NATURAL LEATHER

Animal skin, generally without hair and wool, which is treated by tanning for its conservation and has great resistance and flexibility properties, but requires specific cleaning and emulsion care to avoid stains and cracks. It is considered a noble and very expensive material within the textile industry, due to its manufacturing, and it is usually used in the upholstery of sofas and automobiles.

BONDED LEATHER

Manufactured upholstery material containing approximately 17% natural leather. It is made as a layered structure of leather fibers that correspond to waste or shavings that are crumbled and mixed with binder to emboss with a leather-like texture. It is currently the most used material in the world as an alternative to natural leather, since it presents great properties of this product at a lower cost and much more sustainable.
