BAU 2023 and DNP Initiatives for Living Spaces

BAU 2023 is the world’s leading trade fair for architecture, materials and systems, and will host more than 2,200 exhibitors from 49 countries. DNP will be exhibiting for the first time, and will offer highly specialized interior and exterior materials to visitors, such as architects, designers, housing equipment and building material manufacturers.

DNP is a comprehensive printing company that continues to create value by leveraging our proprietary strengths in Printing & Information (P&I) to contribute to the advancement of environmental, social and economic sustainability, along with the improved well-being of all people. In this latest development, we will propose exterior decorative sheeting comprising a variety of functions that have been enhanced via the use of DNP’s proprietary Electron Beam (EB) technology. We will also exhibit interior and exterior materials with sophisticated design patterns created by our in-house designers. 

EB technology takes various functional materials that are thinly and uniformly coated on a base material, such as a film, and instantly hardens them via EB irradiation to produce weather and scratch resistance functions. 

In addition, DNP's Instagram and LinkedIn accounts will post the content of this exhibition and of DNP activities in the living space-related business. The DNP Instagram account can be found at:, and our LinkedIn account at

DNP Aluminum Decor Panel

Decorative printed aluminum panel developed as both an interior and exterior material for buildings, such as public and complex-type facilities. From natural materials such as wood, stone, and metal to geometric patterns and abstract patterns, we can design custom-made products. With excellent workability, corrosion and weather resistance, lightweight aluminum is suitable for reducing the construction load. In addition, as the surface is a thinly printed coating film, it is highly recyclable.

DNP EB Olefin Sheet for Exterior 

Decorative film used in exteriors for building doors, window frames and louvers – or shutters with horizontal slats that are angled to admit light and air, but which keep out rain and direct sunshine.

Since a wood texture can be embossed on the colored pattern of the decorative film, a wide variety of design can be produced. In addition, by combining EB technology with weather-resistant agents it is also possible to enhance durability by preventing weathering and color fading of the design due to ultraviolet rays. At the same time, the product emits low amounts of the 13 Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) subject to the guidelines drawn up by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in 2002, and considered to cause sick house syndrome. These VOCs include chemical substances, such as formaldehyde, toluene, and xylene.

Going Forward

To date, DNP has built up multiple achievements through a large and long track record with European-based interior-related companies, mainly in interior materials such as flooring materials and decorative sheeting for furniture and interior fittings. Looking ahead, we will continue to contribute to the creation of comfortable and affluent living spaces by leveraging our proprietary technologies and high design capabilities with a focus on exterior materials.
