Phenolic Panels (HPL)
Flower City Glass has provided and installed phenolic panels for exterior and interior applications.
High-pressure laminate panels (HPL) - phenolic panels - are a thin, man-made composite material made up in layers. Layers of printed décor paper, which are often infused with melamine resin, are applied to the panel’s two external faces as a decorative outer layer - metal foils, wood veneers, or textiles are alternative materials for this outer layer. The entire stack is fused into a rigid sheet by the simultaneous application of heat and high pressure.
HPL is known for being a high performing, post-formable architectural panel, and is available in a wide variety of colors, textures, and styles.
Phenolic panels can be used in heavily trafficked areas such as kitchens, hotels, offices, hospitals, shopping centers, and educational facilities, where it can be found in countertops, partitions, furniture, flooring, and wall cladding.
