Compact Laminates 700 550 LI Surfaces

LI Surfaces has supplied high quality compact laminates (from our brands Lamicolor, Duropal and Innovus) to the industry for over a decade. Throughout this time the product has been utilised across many different industries and sectors, from Jailhouses and Police booking stations where more durability is required to Aged and Healthcare where hygiene concerns are at the forefront of the design, but most importantly in the education sector within both science laboratories and toilet partitions, where the product must stand up to the use of heavy chemicals but also to neglectful users of the areas where the product is specified.

Chemical resistant and graffiti proof

One particular area that the product has excelled in throughout the past decade is within the Department of Education, Training and Employment (DETE) design guidelines as one of the preferred products of use within Science Laboratories.

This comes down to these 3 key characteristics:

  1. Chemical Resistant
  2. Graffiti Proof
  3. 10 Year Warranty

Completely non-toxic, resistant and extremely easy to clean, LI Surfaces Compact is safe and practical, even where guarantees of constant and total hygiene are needed, such as in hospitals, schools and laboratories, to create partition walls, wall units, doors and false ceilings.

Privacy matters

DETE have recognised the need for higher privacy panels when it comes to Toilet Partitions especially, these extra height panels reduce the risk of bullying in our schools. The extract below outlines the details:

“each student toilet cubicle shall have full height partitions between adjacent cubicles and full a height door (maximum 40mm gap under door and minimum door height 2040mm)”

When using a Lamicolor Compact Sheet at 4200 x 1610 x 10 he yield of the sheet increases, which reduces overall cost for the project.

Function and technology without compromises

Compact Laminate has a core made of resin-impregnated cellulose sheets, which are faced on both sides with a decorative melamine resin surface. Most qualities of the through-dyed core are available in optional white, grey or black.

Compact Laminate is suitable for creative furniture and interior concepts, including in damp and wet areas. All LI Surfaces Compact Laminates are robust and durable, their areas of use include:

  • office and administration buildings
  • health and care
  • leisure and health resort facilities
  • Outdoor Kitchens
  • shop construction
  • event and conference facilities
  • catering
  • ship interior fitout
  • façades
  • garden furniture
  • screens
  • roof soffits
  • balconies

Does thickness really matter?

LI Surfaces Compact Laminates are available as 10mm Thick, although this streamlined look doesn’t affect the performance of the material. Extensive testing has been conducted and as can be seen in the table below, the 10mm thick compact has the same tensile strength the thicker alternatives. Giving you the peace of mind that your project has been built to last!

All of LI Surfaces Comact laminates have been tested against the international Standard ISO178:2019, which is a method for determining the flexural propertis of rigid and semi rigid plastics under defined conditions. It applies to a freely supported beam, loaded at midspan (three-point loading).

The Table summarises the results when our 10mm Compact laminate has been tested using the above described method across various thicknesses.

The full design diversity

With their through-dyed core, Pfleiderer compact laminates are predestined for open edge solutions. Available in three different core colours, white, grey and black, so offer interesting options for interior design.

The all-round choice, indoors and outdoors

The range is completed by warranting LI Surfaces Compact for outdoor use, specially devised with specific resistance to UV rays, weather and pollution so as to be able to meet the needs of special applications, especially in the building trade.

Its special features, together with its colourfastness and the characteristics that it shares across the range, mean LI Surfaces Compact is able to offer excellent performance when it comes to alfresco design.
