Laminate is divided into two types: melamine and HPL.
What Are Melamine Kitchen Cabinets? Melamine is a synthetic material that’s composed of different things, including wood particles, glue, resins and even paper. Having a paper and resin finish means that melamine kitchen cabinets are available in a wide variety of styles and colors. If you’re trying to expand your modern kitchen renovation budget, melamine is good choice. Melamine kitchen cabinets are known for their attractiveness, durability, and affordability.
HPL means High Pressure Laminates. HPL is produced by saturating multiple layers of kraft paper with phenolic resins, the direct descendent of the original plastic laminate. It is considered to be one of the most durable decorative surface materials and is available with special performance properties including chemical, fire and wear resistance.
