Our HPL boards in silver gray owe their name to the special manufacturing process. Also called as a high pressure laminate (High Pressure Laminate), HPL boards consist of several layers of kraft paper in the core, which is soaked in phenolic resin and on the outsides of silvergray decor papers soaked in melamine resin. These layers are pressed under a very high pressure to a compact, rigid plate. The decorative multilayer panels in silvergray, which we offer in thicknesses of 6mm and 8mm directly in the size you need, meet the standard EN439.
Although HPL panels can be used indoors as opaque screens or wall coverings, they are generally used for exterior applications because the silvergray decorative panels are heat-resistant and frost-resistant. The weatherproof panels are resistant to even the most adverse environmental conditions (for example acid rain) and defy all weather conditions for decades.
HPL panels are UV- and weatherresistant, light-fast and do not fade even in intense sunlight, so that the silvergray color remains. The surfaces of HPL panels are not only decorative, they are also scratch- and solvent-resistant. HPL sheets are extremely rigid and impact resistant and have a high mechanical strength.
The panels made of high-pressure laminate are considered to be physiologically harmless and environmentally friendly. Heavy metals, asbestos or organic halogens (for example chlorine, fluorine, bromine and sulfur compounds, respectively) are not used in the production of HPL plates.
HPL sheets are very easy to clean. Even if the dirt appears stubborn. Thanks to the non-porous surfaces of our silvergray HPL panels, light dirtiness can be easily removed with clean water and a clean, soft wipe. Also, soiling by vandalism (such as graffiti) or stubborn substances can be easily removed with organic solvents (such as acetone, spirit, gasoline, or isopropyl alcohol) in the most cases without damaging the high-quality surfaces.
NOTE: Scouring agents, scouring pads or polishes are unsuitable for cleaning surfaces, because they may cause scratches.

When processing high-pressure laminate panels, such as our HPL panels with a silvergray finish, the same conditions apply as for hardwood processing. This means that although HPL can be easily sawed or milled to cut the panels to the desired size, carbide saw blades or diamond-tipped saw blades or cutters should be used.
Drilling HPL plates with conventional HSS drills or carbide drills is possible, but requires a flat surface on which the HPL plate lays to avoid breakouts on exit of the drill. For freehand drilling or drilling on HPL panels where placement of the panel is not feasible, we recommend using a special facade panel drill with centering tip for HPL.
Basically, HPL panels are paintable, but this is not necessary for outdoor use, since HPL panels are highly resistant to weather anyway. Furthermore, there are a few issues to be aware of when painting HPL panels, such as intensive pre-treatment or the use of special primers and special lacquers. In addition, the painted surfaces require regular processing and renewal.
NOTE: Our HPL sheets are delivered without protective film. When working and processing please take care and do not push the panels over each other or pull over an edge to avoid scratches on the surfaces.
