VIVIX® solid phenolic, engineered exterior facade panels have a decorative surface on both sides. They are resistant to impact and abrasion, weather and UV rays.

Easy to machine and cut into a variety of shapes and sizes, as well as being suitable for field modifications as needed, VIVIX® panels are available in many colours and patterns attuned to contemporary architecture and design.

VIVIX® panels are designed for installation as a ventilated facade to manage moisture, act as a defence against water penetration and aid in preventing the adverse effects of moisture on building finishes and structural components. The continuous circulation of air in the cavity between the inner structure and the outer cladding skin helps moisture to evaporate and keeps the building dry and well insulated.

They can be used with a variety of fixing systems, from simple timber battens to proprietary metal systems. If a building needs to be renovated it's easy and convenient to install VIVIX® panels on top of the old facade.

VIVIX® panels UV and weather resistance properties have been rigorously tested for severe use in accordance with EN 438-6&7.

VIVIX® panels are easy to maintain and, in most cases, can simply be cleaned with mild detergent and water, in accordance with the Formica Group Use & Care Guide for VIVIX® panels.
