HPL panels are decorative panels manufactured by simultaneous pressing of layers of cellulose fiber material impregnated with thermosetting resins and specially pre-treated craft paper subjected to both pressure and heat. The decorative surface of compact laminate is additionally protected by a special coating layer ensuring panels' exquisite resistance to fading.
HPL panels advantages:
High impact and bending resistance, tensile strength and resistance to mechanical damage.
Abrasion resistance – the material is almost unaffected by abrasion.
Almost zero absorption –(the ratio of weight of water absorbed by the material to the weight of dry material submerged into water of 65ºС for 48 hours is 1%). It can be used in damp rooms without limitations and be treated with water of any temperature (even steam) and pressure with the use of detergents.
High resistance to chemicals.
High density (imporosity) prevents dirt from penetrating into panels' structure (including paints and graffiti) and microorganisms propagation.
Easy maintenance as the material is easy to clean from dust, dirt and various coloring matters.
Environmentally friendly (contains no harmful substances) and safe, may be used in contact with food.
Long service life (at least 50 years).
