HPL forming

HPL forming technique allows us to produce ever more diverse and imaginative designs for home furniture and to offer up an innovative material to the chair industry. HPL possesses far greater strength to common, equal-thickness multilayer wood.  Thanks to its resilience under strain, as demonstrated in CATAS tests, HPL allows for minimum thickness in furniture design, a feature popular with designers.

It’s possible to adapt the moulds present in our catalogue to the HPL’s curvature thus reducing equipment costs.

HPL has a black glossy internal structure and can be veneered with laminates and veneers of any kind.

The material’s key technical features include:

  • Class 1 fire resistance.

  • Eco-compatibility.

  • Scratch resistance (when finished in external laminate).

  • Resistance to the elements (when finished in external laminate) so making it ideal for building work.

  • Safety and hygiene when in contact with food.

It’s possible to choose from the following surface finishes (click on the names for details):

  • Solid colours
  • Wood
  • Patterns
