Akrilika chosen for TV Showcase

A countertop fabricated of Akrilika solid surface plays a starring role in an upcoming episode of “Dachny Otvet” on the NTV channel.

The episode running Nov.22 showcases a country house in Domodedovo during a kitchen makeover. The bright kitchen colored cranberry and mint contains everything needed for cooking. There is a spacious storage, a full set of modern appliances, a large and comfortable cooking zone. U-shape countertop is fabricated of Akrilika (A729 Ivory Melange).

Akrilika solid surface is durable, resistant to shocks, stains and scratches. Its non-porous and naturally hygienic surface does not absorb any dirt or moisture and does not support the growth of mold and bacteria.

The total length of the countertop exceeds 4 meters. Its parts are jointed with a special adhesive. After adhesive sets up, the surface is thoroughly sanded and the seams between parts become completely invisible. The same "invisible" joints connect the countertop and integrated sink. Backsplash of increased height protects the wooden wall from dirt, moisture and water drops.

Akrilika is easy to care and maintain, and even stubborn stains can be easily removed from its surface with a sponge and a household detergent.
