Transformad®’s Tmatt and Crystal Collections Join Lathams’ Catalogue

James Latham Ltd (Lathams), one of the UK’s leading independent distributors of decorative products and materials, has added premium surfacing brand Transformad®’s latest surfacing ranges, Tmatt and Crystal, to its collection.

Tmatt is a silky-textured surface with an ultra-matt finish, while Crystal is notable for its high-gloss, highly durable finish.

Manufactured using the highest-quality MDF core and the very latest in surfacing technology, Tmatt and Crystal embody high-performance meets style. They are resistant to scratching, abrasion, moisture, and heavy impact. Designed to be used in demanding interior environments, such as kitchens, bathrooms, walls, ceilings or even furniture, they can withstand heavy use whilst retaining their aesthetic appeal.

Sensuousness on the Surface

Aesthetically, Tmatt is a new collection of lacquered supermatt surfaces, which achieves a delicate-looking surface that surpasses initial perceptions. Irresistible to the touch, it’s also completely smooth, with a silken texture.

Produced in a range of on-trend colours, such as Smeraldo green, Terracotta red and a dark, inky Blue as well as subtler white, grey, beige and black, the Tmatt range embodies understated elegance with a signature softness and warmth. Warm woodgrains in Legno Fumè, Toscano and Elba have also been incorporated into the collection, responding to a growing 2022 trend for natural timber finishes.

Dialling-up the gloss factor to 11, Crystal also has a wide range of attractive finishes, from solid colours to faithful representations of Concrete and Bronze.

The bright, clear definition of the collection’s highly-reflective finish makes it easily distinguishable from other, similar products. The maximum degree of gloss, achieved with a UV lacquer coating, gives it a light, clean and contemporary feel. This treatment also gives the surface essential hardness, important for maintaining its visual appeal in physically demanding environments.

The Union of Technology and Nature

Easy to work, Tmatt and Crystal are perfect for a wide variety of surfacing applications from kitchen doors to bathroom splashbacks, and even interior cladding and furnishing.

Highly resistant to staining and scratching, properties across both ranges include: anti-fingerprint treatment, high durability and abrasion resistance. Tmatt even possesses the ability to thermal-heal surface micro-scratches to maintain a consistently flawless finish, day-in-day-out.

Both surfaces are hygienic, safe and easy to maintain. Perfect for residential and commercial interiors, they are CARB2 certified, meeting the current emission standards set by CARB.

Tmatt and Crystal are Lathams-exclusive in the UK, available in panel sizes of 2850 x 1220 x 18mm, as well as a wide variety of colours and tones to suit almost any design brief.
