YOUR CUSTOM FLAT PANEL FABRICATOR SINCE 1971

High Pressure Laminates (HPL) is one of our decorative surfaces that can certainly be put to the test. HPL decorative surfaces are designed to withstand daily use while still look aesthetically pleasing to the eye.  High Pressure Laminates are extremely durable and are recommended for horizontal surfaces that experience high traffic such as retail, hospitality, healthcare and education settings. We have partnered with some of the premier companies in North America and Europe such as Greenlam, Wilsonart®, Formica®, Pionite®, Nevamar®, Arborite® and Decotone to offer what you want.

THE FEATURES & BENEFITS

High Pressure Laminate (HPL) is produced by saturating multiple layers of kraft paper with a resin. The kraft paper, a layer of decorative paper and a clear melamine overlay are then fused together under high heat and pressure. The curing process transforms the resin into a plastic converting the paper into a rigid laminated sheet.  The sheets are bonded to substrates such as MDF (medium density fiberboard) or particleboard. Suitable for high impact horizontal applications, as well as vertical applications.

HPL is available in multiple grades that include wear resistance for high demand applications, chemical resistance, and even fire rated laminates.  HPL can be applied to HDF and MDF as full sheets and then can be cut-to-size or fabricated into fixtures, furniture or components.
