HPL features and benefits
HPL stands for High Pressure Laminates and it is a very strong, low-maintenance material frequently used in the construction and design industries for decking, cladding and furniture. HPL boasts outstanding resilience and a visually appealing appearance. As it can cope with strong coastal winds and high humidity levels, it is suitable for all environments, including coastal locations.
HPL is composed of several layers of kraft paper impregnated with thermosetting resin. After a decorative paper layer has been added on each side, the layers are fused together with heat and pressure. The result of this process is a compact, very hard laminated sheet.
