Compact Laminates

Compact Laminate is a versatile, high performance material. Its solid laminated core comprises multiple layers of resin-impregnated quality kraft papers with, generally, a decorative surface on both sides. This impressively strong and damage-resistant homogeneous laminate has excellent strength.

Because of its inherent structural solidity, in thicknesses of 6mm and above Compact Laminate is self-supporting for most vertical applications. For horizontal applications the optimum thickness will depend on the distance between supports.

The material can be cut, shaped and routered to produce the stylish shapes and forms demanded by contemporary design. The distinctive black edge of standard grade may be cut square or bevelled and polished, giving an all-round finish with a striking design feature.

Being so robust, Compact Laminate is ideal for applications demanding mechanical strength, damage resistance, hygiene, long life and minimum maintenance. It has excellent impact resistance. Frequently used to manufacture lockers and cubicles for high traffic areas in public buildings such as health clubs, schools and lecture theatre desks. Its inherent properties also make it an ideal choice for laboratory work surfaces.

Compact Laminate comes in standard grade with a black core. The laminate meets all the requirements of EN 438.
