PureMatte provides peace of mind with spectacular anti-bacterial properties.


Testing by the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials in Germany to ISO 22196-2011 using Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella cholearesius, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa organisms, concluding...

“the surface coating had very high antimicrobial activity (R >3) for all bacteria tested, with more than 99.99% of the original bacteria no longer detectable after a 24hr contact time.”

PureMatte HPL food-safe-surface

PureMatte has been certified by European testing laboratory, ISEGA, as food safe and suitable for use in food processing facilities, in accordance with European Standards EN1186, EN13130 and CEN/TS14234. Their certification states...

“...the sample material submitted may be used safely as a coating for HPL plates in food processing factories and may stand in direct contact with all kinds of foodstuffs as far as no hygiene requirements are violated”.


To demonstrate its scratch-resistance we took to PureMatte with steel wool, a fork, and a key.

The PureMatte surface is hardened by an advanced electron beam curing process which renders it extremely robust and resistant to scratching.


PureMatte achieves a scratch resistance of >3N in accordance with EN438-3 and therefore can be used without restriction in horizontal areas such as tables, desks and worktops.


To demonstrate how incredibly stain-resistant PureMatte is we left red wine, beetroot juice, coffee, tea, curry powder and turmeric powder on PureMatte for 3 days. It all simply wiped clean with nothing more than a damp cloth and a melamine sponge.

We have also removed permanent marker and ball-point pen without trace using a damp melamine sponge.

Intensive Cleaning:

  1. Put a drop of detergent on a damp melamine sponge. Rub gently to create a light foam.

  2. Wipe excesses cleaning product residue off with a damp cloth.

  3. Rub surface with a dry cloth or kitchen towel. Again, if detergent residue remains repeat steps 2 & 3.


Scuffs or scratches:

Rub gently with a melamine sponge.
