Laminate Industry (Overlay)

Overlay papers, from 18 gsm till 45 gsm, are used as a protective layer in flooring, kitchen countertops and decor panels (HPL and LPL). Made with 100% pure and clean bleached cellulose pulp, Overlay Papers are engineered to be strong and very absorbent to withstand different levels of wear abrasion. Our papers form a film for the embedded melamine resin in the fiber structure. This enhances the appearance of printed decor papers while improving the abrasive resistance and durability.
