Worktop in HDPE
The worktop for MATCH HDPE (High density Polyethylene A 500) is a material that Muller Vanseveren often uses in their critically acclaimed art and designs. This material is well-suited to kitchens due to its stable and robust properties in comparison with other types of plastic. The plastic is often used in the food industry where it is most commonly seen as cutting boards. The hygienic and antibacterial properties of the material make it highly useful for food storage containers as well. The material also lends itself well to recycling.
The material is untreated and raw with some traces from the production process. This gives the material a tactile expression and texture.
Scratches will be visible and must be considered a part of this material’s patina.
HDPE is easy to clean with a soft cloth wrung in warm water with normal household detergent. Dry off with a soft dry cloth to avoid water stains.
