What is Compact Laminate?
After only 48 hours soaking in water the Laminated MDF is no match for Compact Laminate.
The MDF panel is starting to deform. The bonded material has swollen and the outer top sheet has started to delaminate.
Compact Laminate is constructed with layers of Kraft paper, dipped in resin and dried. These layers are then sandwiched between laminated top and bottom sheets, compressed and baked. A process called polymerisation melds them all together creating a solid- core panel that is an extra tough durable laminate. This creates a prefinished panel that is strong, self-supporting, water resistant and highly durable, requiring very low maintenance – perfect for a multitude of uses in commercial and public spaces.
All Resco’s Compact Laminate panels are “Antibac”. They contain innovative silver ion Biocote technology that independent lab testing* proves kills 99.99% of bacteria within 24 hours of contact, for the lifetime of the panel. (*tested according to the international standard: JIS Z 2801:2000 – Antimicrobial products – test for antimicrobial activity and efficacy).
This means that Compact Laminate is perfect for virtually unlimited interior uses and the benefits of choosing Resco are clear, and significant. It can be used vertically or horizontally for toilet and shower cubicles, wall panelling, lab benches, tables, office furniture, lockers, in fact almost anything.
Resco’s Compact Laminate solid core sheets come in New Zealand’s widest range of colours and thicknesses. Many colours are available in larger 1850m x 3670m panels. Also available is a range of ‘designer’ colours that are useful if you are after something just a little bit unique!
