High Pressure Laminates are “the” classic laminates. For melamine-based laminate floors, the surface consists of several thin layers of paper, impregnated with thermosetting melamine resins. All layers become a strong and unsoftenable composite under high pressure and heat.
HPL floors are relatively complex to manufacture and therefore offer higher impact, pressure and edge strengths in comparison to other laminate floors.
A raised floor with HPL flooring is the low-cost alternative to raised floor boards with parquet flooring, but still offers a large number of advantages.
