The lamination of particleboard, MDF, and HDF panels with thermoset plastic film (resin-coated papers) is a fast, precise, and economical process which is used today for just about every conceivable decorative surface. In fact, it would be hard to find a room anywhere in a building which does not have directly laminated panels of some form, either in laminate flooring or
furniture. As a press specialist, Siempelkamp has delivered the machinery
to produce these products since their first introduction and has always worked closely with resin and paper producers to advance the associated technology. Today's modern shortcycle press offers exceptional performance to meet the increasing demand for laminated wood-based panels. With the precise technology used in these machines, decorative
films are pressed onto a base panel in such a way that the finished product is difficult to distinguish from genuine wood products. These laminates are more durable and easier to clean than real wood and offer a more attractive price (e. g., laminate flooring). At the same time, laminates help to protect
our natural wood resources. A lot of good arguments for a good product - one which is an ongoing global success story.
