Product safety

  • The decorative surface and the core consists of paper layers, which are impregnated with thermosetting resins. The resins harden completely during the manufacturing process by heat and high pressure. They form a stable, resistant and non-reactive material.
  • The surface is physiologically safe, and approved for direct contact with food acc. to Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011.
  • This product follows the REACH regulation EC 1907/2006 an article. Following Article 7 it does not need to be registered.
  • We manufacture the panels without the use of halogens, heavy metals, preservatives, wood protectors or organic solvents.


  • You can find comprehensive accessories for our worktop range at
  • Due to the black core of the material, minor decorative deviations to other products cannot be avoided.
  • For production-related reasons, there may be minor colour variations in the black material core.
  • Depending on the decor and surface texture, slightly different surface visual impressions can result between cut panels viewed from different angles. This is a result of the production methods and does not constitute a quality defect.
  • Due to the processing (chamfer, grind and saw) slight colour variations of the coloured material core may occur.
  • Please note that polishing, scratches and shine marks can occur in everyday use. This is caused by the product and does not represent a quality defect. Traces of use can be minimized by subsequent oiling of the edge. Further information can be found in our processing recommendation "Duropal Compact Worktop".
  • The uneven edge appearance is due to the structure depth of the texture Solid Granite caused by the product and does not represent a quality defect.
  • With PEFC-certification.

Colour and surface match

  • Decor, structure and core board all influence the final appearance of the end product.
  • Due to the product-specific differences in production technologies, even identical decor/structure/core board combinations can result in slight optical and tactile deviations across different product groups and formats. Such deviations do not constitute a defect.
  • The choice of surface structure in particular has a significant influence on the visual impression, the tactile perception as well as the technical characteristics of the product. Thus, the overall impression of a decor can change almost completely depending on the surface structure. Furthermore, mechanical influences on the product surface can lead to a higher contrast optical perception with dark decors.
  • To ensure that you always achieve the best results with our products and to clarify any deviations in advance, we will be happy to advise you individually.

Product handling


  • Especially for large applications, we recommend paying attention to the colour and texture unifomity of the boards and cut products used when further processing and installing and that the production direction is taken into account.
  • Sufficient conditioning is required prior to installation and assembly. The premises themselves need to be at the normal climatic conditions in which the material will later be used.
  • We recommend carrying out your own tests depending on the respective application and material requirement.
  • For further information, please refer to our processing recommendation "Duropal HPL Compact / Duropal Compact Worktop".

Machines and tools

  • Can be worked with carbide (HW) or diamond (DP) tipped tools on conventional woodworking machines.
  • For further information, please refer to our processing recommendation "Duropal HPL Compact / Duropal Compact Worktop".

Installation and assembly

  • Sufficient conditioning is required prior to installation. The premises themselves need to be air-conditioned according to the future use.
  • Please ensure that the material is processed and fitted correctly and using the best available technology.
  • For further information, please refer to our processing recommendation "Duropal HPL Compact / Duropal Compact Worktop".

Storage, handling and transport

  • Foreign bodies or impurities in the pallet of sheets can lead to impressions and damage to the surface of the board.
