Compact Laminate is High Pressure Laminate (HPL) Boards – what is it?
It is one of the toughest ornamental surface materials available, and it has unique performance qualities like chemical, fire, and wears resistance.
By applying heat and pressure, special grades of HPL can be post formed around curved edges. A panel is laminated with HPL using a range of adhesives.
The chosen substrate is MDF or particleboard since they offer a solid, long-lasting, reliable, and affordable basis.
Ownman overseas provides the best high quality of compact laminate board which meets the requirements of international standard we always prefer to accomplish our customer requirements.
Compact laminates use high-pressure laminate boards that are resilient and self-sustaining and have dimensions of 1220MM × 2440MM ( 8×4 FEET ), 1300MM×2800MM( 9.25×4.25 FEET ), 1220MM×3050MM( 10×4 FEET ). Our tiny laminate solution is engineered with domestic technology and has anti-bacterial, abrasion, water, and fire resistance. Compact laminate is perfect for furniture, panels, worktops, lab furniture, facades, lavatory cubicles, lockers, and other interior and exterior applications.
Here is the laminate board manufacturing procedure described by Ownman Overseas. Our inspection team always keeps inspecting the procedure to get the best of laminate boards for your needs. In order to create HPL, phenolic resin is soaked through several layers of kraft paper. The kraft paper is pressed after being covered with a layer of printed decorative paper. Under heat and high pressure (over 1,000 PSI), the resulting sandwich is melted together. As thermoset plastics, phenolic and melamine resins cross-link to form a single, rigid laminated sheet during the curing process, turning the resin into plastic. HPL is more durable thanks to thermo-setting, which forms solid, irreversible bonds.
Usage and benefits:
Durability: Compact laminate is excellent for use in high-traffic areas since it is highly resistant to impact, scratches, and abrasion.
Resistance to humidity: Compact laminate is resistant to moisture and humidity, making it a great option for damp areas like restrooms, changing rooms, and commercial kitchens.
Tolerate to high pressure: Compact laminate is perfect for use in kitchen counters and other hot-spot locations because it can endure high temperatures.
Chemical resistance: Most chemicals are resistant to compact laminate.
One of the toughest ornamental surface materials is high-pressure laminate. It can be found in furniture, cabinetry, flooring, and wall coverings, and it works well in both horizontal and vertical applications.
For surfaces in heavy traffic areas of the house, as well as in retail, corporate, and hospitality environments, HPL is a durable material that works well. In hospitals and clinics, it is frequently used on both vertical and horizontal surfaces.
HPL can also be post-formed due to its nature. With ogees and numerous radiuses, the technique has advanced to incorporate a variety of quality edge treatments that mirror more expensive stone installations.
How to maintain compact laminate board:
The instructions on how to use and maintain the surface for longevity and durability are also provided by Ownman Overseas to their customers.
Compact laminate boards can be kept in good condition with little effort. To maintain them in good shape, consider the following advice:
Cleaning on a regular basis: Use a moist cloth or sponge and a mild detergent to clean the compact laminate board's surface. The surface can be scratched if you use abrasive cleansers or scrubbers.
The surface of the compact laminate board might be damaged by harsh chemicals like bleach or ammonia, so stay away from them.
Spills and stains should be cleaned up as soon as possible to keep them from setting in on the compact laminate board.
Avoid high impact: To protect the small laminate board from harm, avoid dropping or smashing heavy things on it.
Use cutting boards to prevent scratches and damage when preparing meals on the little laminate board.
Use trivets or hot pads: To prevent heat damage to the compact laminate board, use trivets or hot pads when setting hot pots, pans, or plates down on them.
Avoid applying wax or polish to the compact laminate board because doing so could result in accumulation and discoloration.
