Gococi´s commitment to technological advances, makes that all the materials have a very high performance. In this respect, we cannot say that one is better than the other.
In the same way, there are properties and characteristics that will make you decide on one material over the other.
Waterproof board composed by wood particles ironed and glued with thermosetting pastes, covered on both sides by two coats of kraft paper impregnated with melamine resins and edged in ABS of 1 mm and anti-humidity sealing.
This synthetic surface is hard and resistant to breakage, scratch and wear. For this reason it is being used since decades in the manufacturing of furniture.
Board made of particles, with both sides stratified in high pressure laminate HLP, composed by phenolic resins as a base and the decorative and wear layers are saturated with thermosetting melamine resins of between 0,8 and 1,2 mm thick, with edges in ABS and anti-humidity sealing.
The outer surface is made by applying the nanotechnology, characterised by the use of acrylic resins that are hardened and impregnated with colour through the “Electron Beam Curing” process.
Highly resistant to scratch, abrasion, wear and dry heat. Good resistance to knocks, acid solvents and chemical reagents of domestic use. Its reinforced anti-bacteria property makes this surface hygienic, good for the contact with food and easy to clean.It´s also water-proof and mould-preventing.
Extraordinary matt in colour, no-fingermark, nice and soft to touch, with an excellent intensity and deepness of colour, this material offers avant-garde technological features: antistatic, of high durability, with stability to light and dimensions in case of a high variation in temperature.
Thanks to the nanotechnology, it´s able to regenerate itself of possible micro scratches by a process of thermic reparation.
Glass is a must in the kitchens of today, as much for its painstakingly aesthetic as for its hygiene. And although at the beginning, they imply a risk because of its fragility, to avoid it, we take the necessary measures which allow the use of the kitchen with all the security that our home must offer.
The vitrified decorative finish and lacobel of our catalogue have a vinyl adhered to their back side that minimizes the risk of breakage. Once the damage is done, the glass would remain adhered to the vinyl, avoiding possible accidents. Besides the vinyl protects against early wear.
The modern techniques in manufacturing have allowed the use of this highly tested natural material in kitchens. It´s a homogeneous timeless material. Its hygienic surface is resistant to UV radiation, heat, scratch as well as wear and chemical products.
Its aesthetic, functionality and texturized finish make it ideal for the mineral tendencies in design, creating pleasant atmospheres.
Water-proof MDF board coated on both sides with three layers of polyester priming and acrylic finish. In the silk finish it´s got a high resistance to scratch, a great final durability and silky touch. When the finish is shiny, after the last layer, it´s very carefully polished in two phases, leaving the piece very shiny, and with the warranty of a longer durability, as well as avoiding the yellowing of the passing of time.
Being a natural material, it has differences in tone and structure. That´s why there will be variation in colour and composition. This is a symbol of authenticity of a natural product, but thanks to the exhaustive control of quality in the wood made by Gococi, these variations are minimized.
To reduce the possible damages derived from the natural fluctuations of the wood, we have developed a system of floating veneer. We have also substituted in most of them the acrylic varnish by water-based varnishes, whose qualities are totally equivalent but more eco-friendly.
Gococi has models in solid wood, coated ones over particles board, MDF or multilayers according to the models.
