What is HPL?

HPL stands for High Pressure Laminate. HPL laminates, formed under high pressure, are made of paper, wood fibres and melamine resin or decorative paper. During production, layers of paper are pressed together with melamine resin at over 5 MPa pressure and 120°C.

What are the properties of HPL materials?

HPL laminated panels are non-deformable and highly resistant to temperature (up to 180°C). At the same time, the material is extremely weather resistant. Other advantages
include fire safety and resistance to impacts and scratching.


Where is HPL used?

HPL sheets are ideal both for outdoor and indoor use. Applications range from facade cladding and garden furniture to interior partition walls and shower panels.

How are HPL materials processed?

HPL panels are more difficult to machine than other materials. Thus it is extremely important to use the most appropriate tool for the particular machining application.
With quality tools from JSO which have been specially developed for HPL machining, you can work precisely and effectively, thus ensuring consistently high quality.
