High Pressure Laminate Sheet (HPL)

High Pressure Laminate Sheet (HPL)

In the world of interior design and construction, one material stands out for its exceptional durability, versatility, and style: high-pressure-laminate (HPL) sheets. These are high-density panels (≥1.35g/cm3), finished and ready for use. It is a decorative surfacing material used in various applications such as countertops, furniture, wall panels, and flooring.


HPL panels are made exclusively of cellulose-based materials (60-70%) and thermosetting resins (30-40%). They can have decorative finishes on one or both sides. These are the different layers:

  • Overlay : A highly transparent paper, which makes the laminate surface abrasion and scratch resistant. Used only with printed patterns.

  • Decorative paper : External paper, with no chlorides. These are coloured or patterned and give the laminate its aesthetic appearance.

  • Kraft paper : “The heart” of HPL. This is the, mostly brown, paper, which is the core of high-pressure laminate.


  • Environment friendly : HPL sheets are made from eco-friendly raw materials. It is biodegradable and not harmful to nature.

  • Anti-bacterial : Due to its water-resistance nature, it provides protection against bacteria.

  • Protection from UV rays : Due to the resin form and quality decor protection layer, these laminates are light-resistant.

  • Low cost : These laminates are cost-effective in nature. With HPL compact sheets you can avoid the use of plywood.

  • Easy to maintain : Due to its water-resistant feature, it is easy to clean the surface.

  • Good Designs : HPL sheets enhance the beauty of the home, offices, restaurant or any decor perspective.

  • Durability : HPL sheet is highly resistant to scratches, impact, heat and moisture making it suitable for residential and commercial applications.

  • Versatility : HPL sheet come in various colors, patterns, and textures, allowing for different design possibilities. They can mimic the appearance of natural materials like wood, stone, or metal.

Types of HPL Grades

1. Standard Grade (S-Type)

It typically has a thickness ranging from 0.6mm to 1mm. S-Type HPL sheets are commonly used in residential settings. They offer moderate resistance to heat, impact, and moisture.

2. Post-Forming Grade (P-Type)

Post-forming-grade HPL is designed specifically for curved and rounded surfaces. With a thickness ranging from 0.8mm to 1mm.

3. Flame-Retardant Grade (FR-Type)

Flame-retardant-grade HPL sheets are engineered to meet stringent fire safety standards. FR-Type HPL is commonly used in public spaces, healthcare facilities.

4. Chemical-Resistant Grade (CR-Type)

These sheets have a surface that is highly resistant to staining, fading, and degradation caused by chemicals. CR-Type HPL is commonly used in laboratories, healthcare facilities, and industrial settings

5. Exterior Grade (X-Type)

These sheets are UV-resistant, moisture-resistant, and can withstand temperature fluctuations. X-Type HPL is used in exterior cladding, outdoor furniture, balconies, and other applications exposed to direct sunlight and moisture.
