what is a compact laminate?

Infin8 Compact consists of surfaces that cleverly combine layers of paper that have been immersed in a melamine resin.  It is then bonded together, through high-pressure and heat, into complete panels with a top decorative sheet – available in a variety of colours, hues and tones. A final protective layer is laminated over the decorative sheet to maximise durability, making it suitable for all residential and commercial environments.

Benefits of Compact Laminates

Scratch & Solvent resistant

Due to the final hardened layer, our tried and tested compact laminates remain impermeable in frequently used spaces where scratches are likely to occur. They have been scientifically developed to withstand solvents, in areas such as medical facilities and laboratories, due to its nonporous composition. 

Heat & Impact Resistant

The specific layering structure protects the panels from high impacts as well as high temperatures of up to 180 degrees Celsius. This final protective layer combined with a flame-retardant core leads to a surface with unmatched physical properties that can withstand harsh environments.

Easy to Clean & Food Safe

The smooth and hygienic pore-free surface allows for simple cleaning measures to ensure protection against dirt and stains. In addition to the nonporous benefit, the easily cleaned and hard-cured surface ensures compact laminates are highly compatible with food-contact applications.

Weather resistant

Our exterior range of compact laminates are engineered to last in the most challenging weather conditions, while not compromising on aesthetic. In addition to the unrivalled inner strength of the panels, the double-hardened resin that covers the sheet, ensures that it is extremely weather resistant.

Lightfast

All our compact laminates consist of a lightfast surface, which protects the panel from discolouration in highly exposed environments. This makes our exterior range ideal for outdoor surfacing applications.

Durable

The compact laminate sheets are manufactured under high pressure and heat to bond the paper layers together. This complex manufacturing process creates a hard-wearing surface that is extremely strong and able to withstand general wear and tear.
