Arpa High Pressure Laminate (HPL) is typically constructed of several layers of kraft paper, a layer of décor paper which has a solid colored or printed design, and is topped with a protective wear layer that can also carry printed design accents, metallic or other inclusions.
The kraft layers are generally infused with thermosetting phenolic resins; the decorative and wear layers are saturated with thermosetting melamine resins. Because HPL sheets are pressed individually, many different designs and colors can be offered economically. Textured press plates may be used to control gloss levels, or impart textures that mimic stone, wood, tile or other surface designs.
