Our Schattdecor Printed Surfaces product line offers high-quality printed substrates such as decor paper or overlay for decorative surface design. An international team has been tasked with producing wood and stone decors that, in terms of appearance, are as convincing as the natural material with their high level of authenticity. Developments based on textiles, sand, concrete or purely imaginative decors also offer inspiration in terms of their color, brilliance and design. We always focus on current needs, trends and the desired range of application. Thanks to the state-of-the-art development and printing processes, we also create unique bespoke products and designs in oversized repeat or individual layout. In addition to printed decor paper, we offer a printed overlay. This opens up a multitude of new possibilities in the design of modern living and working spaces. Whether backlit or quite classically on wood-based material - our printed overlay creates visually sophisticated and particularly aesthetic highlights that enhance our customers' products!

Our Impregnated Surfaces

Surface solutions for heavy use! Durable and high quality.




Within our Impregnated Surfaces product division, we produce melamine films for further industrial processing. Thanks to our comprehensive technological expertise, our customers in the wood and woodworking industry are able to achieve an ultra-robust surface finish for furniture, countertops, interior fittings and flooring. Deep structures and special matt-gloss effects are in demand like never before. But as the depth of the structures increases, so do the challenges. Our surface recipe in combination with our Decolay Classic melamine films ensures special matt-gloss effects and an optimal separation effect between the melamine film and the press plate The result: Maximum deep structures with a special pore realism - even considering the challenges to coordinate synchronous pressing, complicated special plates involved structures and including the processing of decorative and plain surfaces in the matt-gloss arena.

In addition to our classic melamine films, we offer Decolay Resist, a particularly robust impregnated product for surfaces that are exporsed to heavy use. Decolay Resist extends the product advantages of our classic melamine film with the addition of abrasion resistance. This preserves the beauty of the decor from wear and tear for a long time.

Particularly innovative and cost-efficient, our Decolay Recoat melamine film is paintable. It does not require sanding and primer during further processing, thus saves our customers a step in the production of super-matt or high-gloss surfaces. Reliable coating adhesion and visual enhancement of your products is guaranteed!

With Decolay Real, our melamine film with its realistic appearance and vividly textured structure, we offer our customers an efficient, decor-synchronous solution with an unrivalled natural appearance. This process is particularly economical because the uncomplicated, flexible approach significantly reduces process costs for our customers. Read here why our customer Roseburg Forest Products chose Decolay Real from Schattdecor.

    With our Teclay product line we supply our customers with very specific impregnated specialty papers (overlays, underlays and backings): although these do not appear visually, they do provide added value for the technical construction of flooring and furniture panels. As part of Teclay, we also offer solutions for coating and finishing plywood panels and cleaning films for press plates for processing our melamine products.

    Both Impregnated Surface lines, Decolay and Teclay, fit perfectly into any production scenario. They enhance the quality of your products and turn them into sophisticated, particularly durable premium products. To this end, we offer you comprehensive solution expertise, well-thought-out service packages and fast, efficient implementation.
