What is a high pressure laminate?
Formica® high pressure laminate is a homogeneous material made from paper and resins. The base layer formed out of special paper sheets is impregnated with phenolic resin and the surface layer is textured with melamine resin. The base layer and textured surface layer are compressed at high pressure at 9 MPa and at a temperature of 150 C into a uniform sheet. After the compression phase, the background of the laminate sheet is roughened to improve the adhesion process. On the textured laminate sheet, a wear-resistant surface membrane is used.
“The laminate works required by our customers are machined by using CNC milling machines with specialty blades and tools to achieve the required quality level”
Optimizing and sawing of material
The dimensions delivered by the customer are optimized and the required sheet volume and sizes to be used are determined. The material is used cost-effectively, with the minimum amount of waste.
Drilling and CNC milling service
Parts can be delivered drilled and / or CNC-machined according to wishes, by brand.
Part specific labelling that clarifies the part dimensions, colour, and client reference (e.g. north_01, north_02), which facilitates part identification and installation at the work site. Parts are packed as needed in order of installation.
The high-pressure laminate is manufactured in compliance with the requirements of the EN 438 standard.
