Title: METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING A DECORATIVE ELEMENT HAVING A RAISED EMBOSSED VISIBLE SURFACE, AND DECORATIVE ELEMENT MANUFACTURED BY SAID METHOD
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for manufacturing a decorative element (100) having a raised embossed visible surface (2). According to said method, an embossing device (4) having a female embossing die (41) and a male embossing die (42) and at least one decorative material layer (1) are provided. Said decorative material layer (1) is disposed between the female embossing die (41) and the male embossing die (42) such that a visible surface of the decorative material layer (1) faces the female embossing die (41), and a backing surface (3) of the decorative material layer (1), opposite the visible surface (2), faces the male embossing die (42). The embossing is then carried out using the embossing device (4) such that the decorative material layer (1), after embossing, has a raised region (21) on the visible surface (2) and an opposite recessed region (31) on the backing surface (3). In order to stabilize the raised region (21), an insert element (5) is inserted in the recessed region (31). The invention further relates to a decorative element (100) manufactured according to said method.
