At Lamidecor we want you to know in a simple way the main differences between these products (HPL, CPL y LPL) whose purpose is to cover surfaces with decorative paper in the door and furniture sector. Depending on the properties required for the final application of the product, we will make one choice or another.
The difference between these laminates is given by the substrates, and the pressures to which they are subjected during the manufacturing process.
✔ HPL, high pressure laminate, is marketed with a thickness of 0.6 mm to 30 mm. It offers higher resistance both in physical tests such as resistance to surface wear or scratching, as well as in chemical tests such as resistance to staining agents and low maintenance. It is rigid so it is perfect for flat surfaces.
✔ CPL or continuous pressure laminate, is marketed in thicknesses of 0.15 to 0.5 mm. Its main advantage is its flexibility, lightness and low cost, making it ideal for doors and furniture complements. CPL is the most versatile product.
✔ LPL, low pressure laminate. Its thickness varies depending on the support or base board on which it is pressed. It is suitable for flat surfaces.
The designs of these products are infinite, ranging from imitation wood, to fantasies and unicolours, and have a wide variety of degrees of gloss. They also have different types of optical and haptic finishes such as 3D pore as well as a wide range of realistic structures.
