Areas of application

Furniture and interior fitting

Product features

Easy care
Electrostatically dissipative

Areas of application

Surface material for furniture and tabletops in ESD areas, e.g. at production and assembly workstations in the microelectronics industry. Also wherever electrostatic charges are to be prevented, such as on production lines, in laboratories or central control rooms.

Certificates

FSC quality available

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is a global, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worlwide. FSC defines standards based on agreed principles for responsible forest stewardship that are supported by environmental, social and economic stakeholders.

PEFC quality available

PEFC is the largest institution for ensuring sustainable forest management through an independent certification system. Wood and wood products with the PEFC seal originate demonstrably from ecologically, economically and socially sustainable forestry.

Product safety

  • This product follows the REACH regulation EC 1907/2006 an article. Following Article 7 it does not need to be registered.
  • 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.

Special

  • FSC certification or PEFC certification available on request.

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

Processing

  • Please respect the recommendations of BLFA (www.blfa.co.uk) an ICDLI (www.icdli.com) for the processing of high pressure laminates.
  • For the production of flat-bonded panels we recommend a symmetric construction. This means both sides should be identical HPL. If backing material (also HPL) is used, there is a risk of bowing.

Installation and assembly

  • 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.
  • Please consider during construction and fitting that in ESD protection zones (EPA) the ESD work stations have to be earthed (same electrostatic potential of all elements). This can be achieved construcionally via a connection of the conductive elements of one EPA with an EPA-earth.
    Conductive materials which are fitted insulating are rechargable and therefore a risk potential.
  • Please ensure that the material is processed and fitted correctly and using the best available technology.
  • Please contact your ESD consultant or use corresponding technical literature for further information and concrete realisation instructions.

Storage, handling and transport

  • On level, full area surfaces (e.g. pallets), protected against moisture, in dry, ventilated rooms. Outdoor storage is not suitable.
  • Please note that incorrect storage, regardless of its duration, may cause irreversible distortion to the sheets.
  • Foreign bodies and any impurities in the stack of boards or any sharp or heavy objects can lead to impressions or damage to the surface of the board.
  • Ensure that sufficiently large and sturdy bases, e.g. pallets, are used for the transportation of stacked sheets. The sheets on the pallet must be secured against slipping.

Health and safety

  • Please wear the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) when processing and handling.
  • Provide adequate extraction when splitting/sanding.

Cleaning and care

  • The surface can be cleaned with water and gentle cleaning agents.
  • The use of cleaning products, cloths, sponges with abrasive ingredients, should be avoided.
  • For removal of particularly stubborn stains, industrial cleaners suitable for plastic surfaces can be used. Before use we would recommend testing in a small, hidden area.
  • The impact of water and cleaning agents should be limited to a short time period, drop quantities and standing water should be avoided. Please wipe the surface with a fluff free cloth allover and efficient dry.

Disposal

  • We recommend material or energy recovery in approved plants.
