New 13mm Compact Laminate Colours in stock - Surface Squared

Tuesday, 16 October 2012 14:38

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 and thickness, 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.

Compact Laminate is the most practical material for special areas, particularly wet and high traffic environments such as toilet cubicles, change rooms, playgrounds and hospitals. Compact Laminate sheet has a high resistance to impact, scratching, fire, water and humidity due to its high density.

Surface Squared also stocks chemical resistant and antibacterial grades of Compact Laminate.
