As any number of frustrated homeowners can testify, nothing makes a new kitchen or bathroom look old faster than glossy door, drawer and panel surfaces quickly giving way to moisture warpage, mold or mildew.

To combat these problems, Cyro Industries has developed its new Parapan solid acrylic material. Manufactured as a single, non-porous sheet, Parapan is designed to bring a permanent level of radiance, gloss, and moisture-resistance to bathrooms and kitchens.

The material retains colour, gloss, and UV-resistance after processing, the company said, eliminating the need for coating. Additionally, Parapan can be thermoformed, allowing it to follow the contours of a round or oval frame.

Available in 17 standard colours, in thicknesses of 18 mm and 4 mm, Parapan sheets are delivered as cut-to-size and ready-to-install furniture elements. And unlike coated high-gloss lacquer fronts, the material is also solvent free, allowing it to be recycled and ultimately returned to the manufacturing process.

“Parapan’s appearance, functionality, and durability give homeowners, architects and interior designers a level of creativity they did not previously have,” said Debbie Sulewdki, Parapan product manager. “It sets a new standard for high-gloss furniture fronts.” Cyro Industries (Parsippany, N.
