Altofina high pressure laminates fully comply with the requirements of BS EN 438, NEMA LD3, ISO 4586 parts 1 and 2, including abrasion, impact, moisture resistance, postformability, tensile strength, safety of installation and ease of maintenance. All Gloss, Tuff Gloss, Metallic and Black & White ranges have a protective foil to reduce the risk of scratching during fabrication and installation. In addition, a protective foil is applied on all textured Plain Colours with an LRV value of 30 or less. The foil can be easily removed either before or after the installation is complete.
Altofina can be bonded to various grades and thicknesses of chipboard, MDF, metal, mineral, lightweight honeycomb and other substrates to create a rigid panel. All décor ranges, with the exception of the Metals range, are available in postforming grade allowing both flat and curved applications for projects that need seamless shapes.
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is a thermally resistant thermoplastic and is highly impact resistant. ABS edging can be bonded to the edges of Altofina panels to provide additional impact resistance and it colour matches all of Altofina’s design ranges. ABS edging is suitable for flat panel edging as well as internal and external radii. It has excellent end of life disposal characteristics.
