It is considered to be one of the most durable decorative surface materials and is available with special performance properties including chemical, fire and wear resistance.
Common thickness range is .2 mm through .4 mm. Surface properties are similar to vertical grade HPL and are used significantly to complement HPL and TFL laminates.
HPL is produced by saturating multiple layers of kraft paper with phenolic resin. A layer of printed décor paper is placed on top of the kraft paper before pressing. The resulting sandwich is fused together under heat and pressure (more than 1,000 PSI). Because phenolic and melamine resins are thermoset plastics, the curing process transforms the resin into plastic by a cross linking process that converts the paper sheets into a single, rigid laminated sheet. Thermo-setting creates strong, irreversible bonds that contribute to HPL’s durability.
Special grades of HPL can be postformed around curved edges by application of heat and restraint. HPL is laminated to a panel utilizing a variety of adhesives.
Particleboard or MDF are the preferred substrate because they provide a stable, durable, consistent and economical foundation.
