A Look Back Through 2019

A Look Back Through 2019
As the end of 2019 approaches and a new decade starts, we would like to thank our loyal customers for their support and patronage over the past year. Here is a look back into what happened in 2019!

2019 is a year for celebration as polytec continues to expand and create innovative product solutions for designers, architects, builders and joiners. This past year was filled with events, new product releases, and the addition of new polytec Selection Studios across the Nation.

The Woodmatt range expanded with the walnut woodgrain of Rojo Walnut, a classic red and brown grain structure. 

Thermolaminated Doors & Panels
polytec's Thermolaminated doors & panels continued to grow and adapt to industry trends with the introduction of three new door profiles: Hampton, Chifley and Ascot. The varying rail widths on these doors allow for design flexibility and are made to suit the contemporary Australian landscape. 

Woodmatt was added to the Thermolaminated range of finishes in Florentine Walnut, Prime Oak and Bottega Oak - the realistic woodgrain now creating a unique feature in profiled doors. Oxford Matt, a dark navy-blue colour, became available in the range of which we saw an influx of navy Hampton-style kitchens emerge. 

Half Round 
The Steccawood Half Round profile provides new bespoke joinery opportunities and added luxury of curved timber. The Steccawood Half Round battens are available in a selected range of Woodmatt and Ravine colours. The pre-finished decorative battens are offered in 17mm x 34mm diameter and 31mm x 62mm diameter.

Compact Laminate Woodmatt
After a long-anticipated wait, polytec have released a range of Woodmatt colours in the 13mm Compact laminate range: Angora Oak, Antico Oak, Bottega Oak, Prime Oak, Notaio Walnut, Empire Oak, Perugian Walnut, and Estella Oak Woodmatts. polytec's newest solid Woodmatt colour, Cinder, has made its debut in the 13mm Compact laminate range, paving the way for an exciting array of new releases in 2020. 

Portland Stone Smooth has been added to the Xenolith range - a soft, warm grey with subtle veining throughout.

The ULTRAGLAZE Ultramatt range expanded with additional solid colours and a new metallic range of colours. Obsidian Metallic, Pewter Metallic and Mineral Metallic are the latest release of super matt products with a contemporary look and feel.

Design Awards
The biennial polytec Design Awards commenced for another year, celebrating the innovative work of national designers, architects and builders. Hosted by Anh Do, the events captured the essence of art deco theatre following the luxurious 2018 AWISA display. Judged in five categories, the hundreds of national submissions were narrowed down to four finalists and one winner in each category per State.

Selection Studio Openings
polytec’s prowess in the decorative surfaces industry continues with the addition of brand-new Selection Studios in Perth WA and Charmhaven NSW! The Selection Studios are open to the public to explore the innovative colours and finishes polytec have on offer. Our expert consultants will navigate you through the extensive range of high-quality Australian products available to help you create your unique design style.
