Plastic door and window elements with a wood design and feel have very good weather resistance, low cost and high versatility. However, due to the different production steps, the profiles and the door leaves show slight differences in terms of visual appearance and feel. The project was motivated by the need to generate a semi-finished product that had exactly the same visual appearance and feel as the decoration film that it was based on. The semi-finished product had to be combined with the decoration film in a continuous process without using adhesives. To achieve this, a special apparatus was developed, designed and built, which can integrate the lamination directly into the plate production process. The process is configured in such a way that the embossed pattern typical of a film is retained and is even more resistant to the structural leveling that is typical for the thermoforming process.
