High Pressure Laminated for Decorative Surfaces

High-Pressure Laminate is the direct descendent of the original plastic laminate. It is supposed to be one of the most durable decorative surface materials and is available with special performance properties including chemical, fire, and wear resistance. Special grades of HPL sheets can be formed around curved edges by the application of heat and restraint.

HPL sheets are a great addition to any house, interior decoration, or furniture design. You can buy the best high pressure laminates on to add a unique statement to your home interior.  HPL is produced by soaking 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 joined together under heat and pressure.

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.  High-pressure laminate sheets are laminated to a composite panel utilizing a variety of adhesives.

Particleboard or MDF are the preferred substrates because they provide a stable, durable, consistent, and economical foundation. Due to their durability, high-pressure laminates are a common choice for horizontal surfaces including flooring, countertops, and desktops. 

Special custom laminates can be produced to match the theme or décor of any environment such as this wall mural in a contemporary home.
