Furniture or floors with CPL or HPL coatings are not only easy to care for, but also extremely durable, thus perfectly protected against minor impacts and abrasion. Surfaces with these coatings are also solvent-resistant, heat-resistant, smudge-proof and scratch-resistant.
The difference between CPL and HPL lies in the material thickness and in the manufacturing process. CPL stands for Continuous Pressed Laminates and HPL for High Pressure Laminates. Both laminated panels consist of cellulose fiber sheets impregnated with thermosetting resins. CPL is produced in continuous double belt presses with a pressure between 30 and 70 bar and temperatures between 150 ° C and 170 ° C. HPL, on the other hand, is produced in discontinuously operating multi-day presses with a pressure of between 50 and 90 bar and temperatures of over 120 ° C. The CPL press time is only 8 to 15 seconds and the HPL 20 to 60 minutes, so the CPL manufacturing process takes less time. Another advantage of CPL is the independence from length trimming and the possibility of online post-processing. The thickness of the CPL with 0.15 to 1.50 mm is not as high as that of the HPL with 0.50 to 2.00 mm, which means that compact sheets can also be produced with this method. Another advantage of HPL coating is the ability to produce surfaces with deep structures.
