Material properties like stiffness, strength, impact resistance, scratch resistance, texture, color, and printability can be optimized by combining the panel with face laminates to suit specific customer requirements.
Face laminates such as hardwood veneers, HDF, HPL, CPL, and aluminum can be applied using existing equipment. It’s important to comply with the recommended bonding pressure of 2.5kg/cm3.
PAINTING & WALLPAPERING
The surfaces and edges can be easily painted, filled, and wall-papered. Depending on the requirements placed in the finished surface, more primer may be required.
