    By September 20 , 2017

    High Pressure Laminate

    • The manufacturing process involves actual plastic laminate being pasted with glue and then pressed to the MDF board using the cold press laminating process.
    • The laminate is manufactured at a pressure of approximately 1000 psi -1500 psi and temperature of 280F- 320F.
    • Adhesives are used.
    • Comparatively expensive and durable.
    • Fire Retardant and anti-bacterial.

    Low Pressure Laminate

    Low Pressure Laminate also known as Melamine

    • The manufacturing process involves paper finish being bonded to the MDF panel with a glue which is heat activated.
    • The laminate is manufactured at a pressure of approximately 290psi-438psi and temperature of 335F- 375F.
    • Adhesives are not used.
    • Economical but not so durable.
    • Fire Retardant and anti-bacterial.
