Regular HPL are laminates that are manufactured in the traditional process and are not specifically treated to have special properties. They are naturally resistant to bacterial, borer & termites and prove to be a good surface solution for your homes.

Antiviral laminates by CenturyLaminates on the other hand are HPL that have been specially treated during the manufacturing process to have antiviral properties. Made with patented and one-of-a-kind latest technology called ViroKill Technology, these laminates can kill more than 99% of viruses, bacteria, fungus and microbes that land on the laminate surface.

The antiviral properties are non-leaching, non-hazardous and valid for the lifetime of the furniture.

Apart from this, they are also highly resistant to scratches, scuff, water, stains and malodour. They are easy to clean and maintain and quite light on the pocket.
