Duropal High Pressure Laminate – or: Duropal HPL – for short, is a decorative high-pressure laminate. It is made from a melamine resin impregnated decor paper layer and several core paper layers impregnated with phenol resin, which are pressed together under high pressure. The resulting material is very hardwearing, impact resistant, temperature resistant and easy to clean.
Duropal HPL is therefore an ideal surface material for applications in which high use, durability and hygiene requirements with high design standards play a role:
- kitchen furniture and worktops
- office furniture
- salesroom fitouts
- ship interior fitout
- leisure facilities
- clinics and laboratories
- care facilities
- kindergartens and schools
- administration buildings
In addition to its robustness, Duropal HPL is characterised above all by the design freedom opened up by the material. A wide choice of decors and diverse surface textures all the precise and uncompromising implementation of aesthetic ideas with the highest quality. This also applies to its use as a facing for board materials, such as the flat-bonded element for windowsills or worktops with postforming edge.
Duropal HPL is part of Pfleiderer’s DST system. This means that it is available in more than 300 decors and the corresponding surface textures, from matt to high-gloss through to extremely realistic wood pores within the shortest possible time. It can also be combined almost limitlessly with other products in the DST system, for example, with melamine-faced particleboards or flat-bonded elements.
Pfleiderer Duropal HPL is available in a whole range of innovative special assortments, which not only open up distinct design options, but also functionally unique possibilities. For example, as antimicrobial quality with Duropal microPLUS® or with the extremely matt, "XTreme Matt" or the extremely matt and wear resistant "XTreme Plus" textures. Pfleiderer offers other special laminate versions with its HPL Magnet, HPL Real Metal, HPL ESA and HPL products in flame-resistant quality for building and ship interior fixtures and finishes. Pfleiderer also offers the possibility of producing HPL with individually requested decors and motifs in digital printing from a run of one.
