Compact Laminate

Looking for some design inspiration? Compact Laminate may be your solution.

Compact Laminate is a innovative, high-pressure solid composite designed for high-touch and high-use applications. Extremely durable, Compact Laminate provides superior resistance to impact, scratch, moisture, and stains, making it the perfect solution for a wide range of interiors applications. Here’s our quick guide.

Our innovative compact laminate board is made from layers of Kraft material saturated with thermosetting resin and exposed to heat and high pressure. It undergoes polymerisation to fuse the material together and create a durable core panel. As a result, we provide multipurpose compact laminate panels for NZ clients who are looking for a product that can withstand impact and moisture in addition to normal wear and tear. Not only does this manufacturing process ensure an incredibly strong and dense structure, but it also enables the laminate to be made of varying thickness ranging between 3-18mm.

DuraPlan is on a mission to continuously improve our services. We want to be your project partner and we offer bespoke compact laminate boards based on your requirements. These panels come with a wide range of unique performance characteristics that could make it the perfect option for your next interiors project.
