Everything you need to know about coloured HPL sheet textured

HPL sheet (High Pressure Laminate) is also commonly referred to as Trespa®. Trespa® is one of the best-known manufacturers in the field of HPL sheets. In our extensive range, you will find our own brand HPL laminate sheets as well as those of the Trespa® brand. High pressure laminate sheets are resistant to moisture, UV radiation and temperature changes, making this plastic ideal for outdoor applications.

Applications of coloured HPL

You can use coloured textured HPL sheets for both indoor and outdoor applications. For example, as a replacement for fascias and wind springs or as a balcony covering. Also good to know: for every sheet, we supply screws in a matching colour. These are virtually invisible after assembly.

HPL also offers endless possibilities for interior applications. You can use the sheets as an easy to clean shower wall covering, a sleek kitchen splashback or for creating your own unique DIY desktop.

Types of coloured HPL textured sheet

We offer all our coloured and textured HPL sheets in a sheet thickness of 6 mm. The range of colours varies from HPL moss green to HPL traffic red. To give you an accurate idea of your chosen colour, we always mention RAL colour codes with the sheet. These codes are intended as an indication only. The top layer of our HPL coloured sheets has a light rock texture and is finished in satin.

Working with HPL

Machining high pressure laminate is very similar to machining hardwood so hard steel tools, such as a metal saw and drill, are essential. You can paint, drill, saw, glue and mill HPL. Keep in mind that this material expands or shrinks faster than other plastic materials.

Properties of HPL

  • Chemical resistant
  • Heat resistant
  • Shockproof
  • UV resistant
  • Moisture resistant
  • Lifespan 30 years

Maintaining HPL sheet material

The great thing about Trespa® and HPL sheets is that this material requires almost no maintenance. With the right maintenance kit, cleaning HPL is a breeze. Thoroughly clean your HPL exterior cladding at least once a year. This way it stays beautiful and the material will certainly last for 30 years. View our tips for cleaning Trespa® and HPL.

Handy hint:

We recommend Kenotek Brilliant Wash as the best detergent to use for cleaning HPL exterior cladding. This mild shampoo removes all dirt deposits in an instant. The shampoo is self-drying and leaves a protective wax layer on the plastic.

When using the right tools, HPL sheets are easy to handle and are suitable for drilling, milling and sawing. Of course, we can saw the sheet to your required size.

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 drillHPL screws and Bostik adhesives and primers.
