HPL is the abbreviation for High-Pressure Laminate. HPL is made up of several layers that are compressed (laminated) under very high pressure. This creates a very dense, hard and form-retaining sheet. It is scratch, impact and UV resistance. This makes HPL a very durable material.
An HPL sheet consists of wood fibre or paper core and two top layers. The core of the sheet consists of several layers of wood fibre and paper that are soaked with phenolic resin. During production, these layers are compressed under high pressure and at a high temperature.
High-pressure laminate can reproduce the appearance of any other material such as wood, natural stone, marble, granite, quartz and ceramics. And it can adopt an opaque, shiny or satin finish, as well as simulate various colours with different textures and models.
