HPL - High Pressure Laminate

Shock-resistant, strong HPL sheets

HPL (High Pressure Laminate)  sheets consist of phenol resin and cellulose and are produced by heating at extremely high pressure. The HPL sheets are hard and rigid with a coloured UV protective top layer. HPL sheets are extremely weather resistant and easy to process. 

We have two versions of HPL sheet in our range, chalk board and black board for the office, educational and signage markets.

How to identify HPL

Because the top layer of HPL can be printed in many different motifs, HPL does not have a standard colour range like many other technical plastics. 

With a specific mass of 1.4 grams per cubic centimeter, the material is relatively heavy. HPL can be identified by the often dark-coloured core with a laminated top layer.

The material is very stiff and very hard, so it does not bend easily.

What are the most important technical properties of HPL?

HPL (High Pressure Laminate) is made up of laminated wood fibre or paper layers and two top layers. These are pressed into a hard, robust plate in combination with a resin under high pressure.

HPL is impact and scratch resistant. The plates are widely used as facade cladding, machine casing and wall finishing.

The top layer of HPL is available in many colours and motifs.
