What are antibacterial laminates and where you can find them?


Laminates are a composite material manufactured in multiple layers to improve various qualities like appearance, strength, durability, stability and more. Made of kraft and decorative paper held together by resins[CC1] , it is passed under a hot press undergoing high-pressure and heat to create a highly versatile finishing layer for furniture tops. They are among the most widely used surfacing materials, suitable for both residential and commercial spaces.



On a laminate surface, microbes can multiply in number at quick succession under half an hour. This can result in undesirable stains, malodors and premature degradation that affects the durability, lifespan and hygiene of a laminate product. In many circumstances, once microbes have begun to proliferate on a laminate surface, successive cleaning is required to keep growth under check.

An average laminate can be transformed into an antibacterial laminate during the final resin bath of the impregnation process. As a result, we get a surface that has a long-term resistance to harmful microbes, ultimately reducing the risk of cross-contamination and complementing existing hygiene practices.

Antibacterial properties are essential and indispensable for decorative laminates because these laminates are often applied on kitchen tops and countertops, cabinets and table tops that are bound to come in constant contact with food materials and younger children.



As a thermosetting material, HPL has a natural resistance to microbial proliferation.
