Conclusion

High pressure laminate (HPL) has been shown to be an appealing solution for use in sustainable, well-designed buildings. The varied and extensive range of design characteristics provide architects with broad design freedom and many opportunities for creativity. The tested and demonstrated performance characteristics help assure that the material will function as intended over the life of the building.
