CONTINUOUS PRESSURE LAMINATE
Best features of Continuous Pressure Laminate
Continuous Pressure Laminate is a surface product that is laminated in continuous form low pressure.
It is really similar to High Pressure Laminate but instead of being manufactured with high pressure, Continuous Pressure Laminate is laminated under low pressure. This results in variations in performance particularly in terms of strength and ease of installation. However the laminate structure and the resins used are relatively the same for the two types of laminate. This means that if the specifications, such as thickness, decor and finish, are identical, then both will also produce identical test results.
Continuous Pressure Laminate (CPL), in contrast to other surfacing materials, offers the versatility in available lengths as well as the biggest advantage of easy application for curved surfaces. It is cut to the required width on-line immediately after pressing, as well as being finished on the reverse side and formatted to length or coiled onto a roll. The melamine resin film formed in the production process protects the laminate and gives the surface above average resilience and durability. It is an ideal product for use where thin and postformed surfaces are required.
Continuous Pressure Laminate is perfect for numerous applications in vertical and horizontal areas such as kitchens, office furniture, doors, furniture manufacture, benches, interior partition walls and cladding, or commercial and decorative spaces.
