The properties of coloured HPL texture sheets
HPL sheets have a dense core consisting of wood fibres that are forced together under high pressure. Consequently, the strong core develops the same qualities as hardwood. The sheet is covered with a phenolic acid top layer that is also created under high pressure and high temperature. This results in an almost indestructible material, that requires strong tools to work on it. Using a saw blade or drill bit that is suitable for metal or hardwood is a necessity to get through the tough HPL sheet. In our assortment you will find our private label HPL sheets and HPL sheets from renowned brand Trespa®.
Originally, HPL sheets were designed for outdoor applications. Due to its characteristics HPL plastic is often used as exterior cladding on buildings, billboards and fascia boards. Despite HPL’s popularity for outdoor use, it is also suitable for interior applications like shower screens and kitchen splashbacks. The phenolic resin top layer has an extremely high molecular density which makes it impenetrable for dirt and moisture. This results in a material that is moisture, UV and temperature resistant. In our range you will find accessories that are useful when working with HPL sheets, like a special HPL drill, HPL screws and Bostik adhesives and primers.
