HIGH PRESSURE LAMINATES (HPL)
High pressure laminate (HPL) is considered to be one of the most durable decorative surfaces, making it an ideal choice for horizontal applications like countertops or desktops.
Acrylic presents a mirror-like high gloss surface, or a velvety smooth matte surface. It offers excellent scratch resistance.
PET has already taken off in Europe and is gaining ground in North America. These high gloss and super matte surfaces are more durable and scratch-resistant than vinyl or PVC.
Acrylic or PET clear laminate can be used over other decorative papers or a multitude of other substrates to create a durable, scratch-resistant surface with a glossy or matte look.
PVC is a common and versatile laminate, lending itself to a wide variety of colors, textures, and patterns.
