What is plastic laminate?
HPL (high-pressure laminate) partitions are made from a particle board core covered by a decorative surface protected by a protective melamine overlay.
We carry plastic laminate toilet partitions featuring wear-resistant engineered surfaces manufactured by trusted industry names like Wilsonart and Formica.
What is plastic laminate made of?
Laminated plastics consist of polymer-matrix composites. They're made by impregnating a special form of decorative kraft paper with thermosetting resins (usually melamine or phenolic resin) and polymerizing under heat and pressure, forming a polymer-matrix composite. "High pressure" refers to the force introduced during the production process. These pressure levels typically reach 1,200 to 2,000 psi.
How Do You Cut Plastic Laminate?
Plastic laminate can be cut to size, if necessary.
