Adhesives

The substance used to bind/glue two surfaces. Adhesives can have natural or synthetic origin and be thermoplastic or thermosetting. Adhesives are typically defined by the kind of adhesion. They can be reactive and non-reactive adhesives. The reactive adhesives chemically reacts to harden: one-part adhesives (light curing materials, e.g. acrylic based adhesives; heat curing materials, e.g. cyanoacrylates and urethanes); multi-part adhesives (acrylics, urethanes and epoxies). The non-reactive adhesive are: drying adhesives (solvent based, e.g rubber cement; polymer dispersion based, e.g. PVAc), pressure sensitives adhesives (e.g acrylate polymers), contact adhesives (e.g natural rubber and neoprene), hot adhesives (hot melt thermoplastic adhesives).

Application

The situation or the purpose for which the laminate can be utilized.

Arpa HPL (STD)

Arpa HPL PF

Arpa postforming HPL typology: one-sided HPL which can be heat shaped toward convex or concave shape. Thickness ranges from 0,6 mm to 1.2 mm.

Assembly

In the HPL production cycle, the act of putting together the different kraft, decor and overlay sheets. Once overlapped they are put in a press for the thermo-lamination.
