The top of the dining table is in Fenix NTM, an innovative material that combines ultra-matte aesthetic with cutting-edge technological performance. This laminate was developed with acrylic resins and nanotechnology.
With its silky touch and fingerprint resistance, this material withstands scratches, abrasions, friction and dry heat. It is also extremely resistant to impacts, solvents and cleaning products. It has antibacterial properties that makes it easy to clean. FENIX NTM is also water-resistant and mold-resistant.
Micro scratches can be removed with a melamine foam sponge (not included) that is recommended to regenerate the material, or with a moist cloth and an iron by following the maintenance instructions.
