These laminates are used in the furniture industry (worktops, kitchen or bathroom units) and in the building industry (doors, wall panels and flooring) for post forming, flat laminates, profiles, edges or soft forming.

Genuine Vegetable Parchment is a unique base paper with higher flexibility to the laminates (important for tight post forming), good gluability with PU, PVA, PVAC or neoprene glues which eliminates the need for sanding and allows the use in HPL process.

This innovative and economical solutions for better production and creative results, because its unique properties make it alternative by replacing release medium and using less impregnated Kraft.
