High Pressure Laminate
HPL is a coating material for boards consisting of different layers.
The lower layers are core paper impregnated with phenolic resin which are coated with design papers on the surface which are melamine impregnated.
HPL offers a high compressive strength and is designed for furniture for high performance such as tables in offices and public areas.
With a thickness of 0,5 to 1,5 mm HPL is applied for the coating of boards like MDF, chip-board or plywood in order to create durable furniture surfaces.
Compact HPL is a self-bearing material material. An additional core material is not necessary. By this solid core it is resistant to humidity and temperature.
Therefore Compact HPL is also applicable in laboratories and hospitals.
