Decorative paper-based HPL «SLOPLAST»
Decorative paper-based laminate SLOPLAST is a high-pressure facing and structural plastic material, also called HPL (High Pressure Laminate), with a decorative surface suitable for external and internal works, resistant to mechanical impacts, light, it is weather insensitive. HPL consists of sheets of special kraftpaper impregnated with synthetic thermoreactive resins. Production technology envisages the combined treatment of paper under the effect of high temperature and pressure at special presses. Such treatment enables the resins to penetrate into the structure of paper, filling the fibers and changing its structure at chemical level. As a result, the uniform monolith material with unique operating performance characteristics is produced.
The thickness of the decorative plastic depends on the number of paper layers, it varies within the limits between 0.6 and 25 mm. Technology of material production enables to make various types of the surface finishing – glossy, matt, or textured; plastic sheets can be decorated from one side or from two sides.
