The Max HPL composite panel with carrier material consists of Max laminates according to EN 438-3, which are glued on both sides of a carrier material. There are various possible combinations for the laminate. The carrier material particularly, can vary. Usually it consists of a wood-based material, such as chipboard or MDF, but honeycomb elements or thermal insulation materials etc. can also be used as the core layer.
In order to guarantee a distortion-free composite element, a symmetrical structure is indispensable. This means that the laminate panels must have the same thickness (0.8 to 4 mm) on both sides, but different decors can be used.
FunderMax Star Favorit Superfront are coated chipboards produced by the direct coating process. The coating on both sides are approx. 0.5mm or 1.0mm thick, and has the same structure as a laminate board.
The difference between Star Favorit Superfront and HPL laminates lies in the manufacturing process. With the Star Favorit Superfront the coating is applied in a single operation.
Depending on the surface finish of the coating, the technical values as well as the properties correspond to the requirements of EN 438-3 for laminates. For possible formats of Star Favorit Superfront panels and Max HPL panels, please refer to our currently valid product range.
