FAQ – Frequently asked questions about HPL and Compact benchtops

What are the advantages of an HPL benchtop?

An HPL benchtop is made from robust HPL laminate and a core made of wood-based material (particleboard). The underside of the benchtop is protected with a water-repellent coating to protect it from moisture.

Post forming benchtops with slightly rounded front edge, the so-called postforming edge, have successfully proven their worth in practice. In these benchtops, the HPL overlay extends seamlessly from the work surface to the underside and protects the exposed benchtop edges. A straight edge look on the other hand is achieved with the Laminate benchtops with thick edges. These edges made of acrylic, wood or model ensure a modern overall look.

All Laminate benchtops from Pfleiderer are

  • available in a wide range of decors, making them easy to integrate into any interior design scheme
  • hygienic and easy to clean
  • food safe
  • antimicrobial
  • solvent and disinfectant-resistant
  • resistant to water vapour, coffee, tea and red wine stains as well as the effects of temperature
  • easy to work with

In addition, you can also order our Laminate benchtops with an Anti-Fingerprint or a microPLUS® surface.

What are the advantages of a Compact benchtop?

A Compact benchtop consists of a solid, compact high-pressure laminate. With homogeneous black, grey or white dyed core and decorative surface on one side. The long edges of the Compact benchtops are cut and bevelled. The durable high-pressure laminate is water-repellent, self-supporting and non-corrosive across the whole cross-section, so that it does not require edge sealing.

All Compact benchtops are

  • perfectly suitable for room concepts thanks to their exclusive and modern design
  • easy to clean
  • food safe
  • antimicrobial
  • solvent and disinfectant-resistant
  • also suitable for wet cleaning
  • resistant to impacts, water vapour, coffee, tea and red wine stains, as well as the effects of temperature

Duropal Laminate benchtops are usually ordered in a thickness of 38 millimetres. However, some benchtops are also available in a thinner version of 28 millimetres. The formats for Laminate benchtops vary depending on the benchtop. In general, six formats are available:

  • 4100 x 600 mm

How can Duropal benchtops be worked on?

Conventional woodworking machines are suitable for the further processing of HPL sheets. It is essential that all cut edges are sealed so that they are moisture resistant and follow the storage instructions. Further information is available on the product pages.

It is advisable to machine Compact boards with professional vertical spindle moulders or a horizontal beam saw, as hand-held tools are not designed for the material hardness. Detailed instructions can be found in our Use recommendation for Duropal Compact benchtops.
