VIVIX: VIVIX solid phenolic, engineered exterior façade panels have a decorative surface on both sides. Robust and resilient, these rigid homogeneous panels are manufactured using tough thermosetting resins reinforced with cellulose fibre for added strength and durability. An acrylic overlay provides enhanced UV protection and VIVIX panels have been rigorously tested for severe use in accordance with European Standards.

VIVIX panels offer impact and abrasion resistance and are UV and weather resistant. Formica VIVIX is available in an array of natural colours, abstract patterns and rich woodgrains. VIVIX panels are easy to maintain and can be used to clad an entire building envelope, create individual design features or be used in combination with other cladding materials to enhance the look, function and life span of any project.

True scale decors
Developed in collaboration with architects and colour consultants, True Scale is a range of patterns and wood decors that has no repetition across the width of the panel. Developed with architects and colour consultants, true scale captures the look and feel of natural materials, stones and woods.

Using the very latest digital and silk-screen print technologies, optimum visual replication of any design can be achieved with Younique, a bespoke service developed by Formica Group to transfer bespoke designs onto any VIVIX cladding panel.
