A fascinating combination of materials, amazing for outdoor use
HPL is short for ‘High-Pressure Laminate’. It consists of a wood-fibre core and two top layers that are laminated together under high pressure and high temperature.
HPL consists of more than 60-70% paper, with the remaining 30-40% a combination of resins - a plant or synthetic polymer. These materials which crosslink during the press cycle creating irreversible chemical bonds that produce a nonreactive, stable material with characteristics different and superior to those of the component parts.
This results in a dense and rock-solid top that withstands sunlight and moisture, making it the perfect material for outdoor use.
