James Latham Ltd has announced the addition of premium surfacing brand Transformad’s latest, high-tech surfacing ranges Tmatt and Crystal, to its collection.

Responding to an increasingly popular design preference for visually striking, sensuous, tactile and hard-wearing surfaces, 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.

Commenting on these new additions to the Lathams catalogue, Paul Morson, Group Melamine Product Manager, says: “Transformad is one of the world’s most forward-thinking materials manufacturers, and these surfaces directly respond to a number of new design trends coming to the fore, particularly the desire to balance looks with longevity, and strength with sustainability. We have a reputation for bringing the very latest premium, and innovative, architectural products onto the market. When we first saw Tmatt and Crystal, we instantly knew we wanted to be the first to offer UK specifiers unfettered access to these high-performance surfaces.”

Transformad’s Nicolás Villaverde added, “Working with partners whose initiatives align with our own is very important to us, and Latham’s dedication to innovative materials and sustainable design made them a natural choice to launch Tmatt and Crystal in the UK. We look forward to collaborating with them to promote these high-tech surfaces, distributing them without disruption to construction and design professionals nationwide.”
