What is a high pressure laminate table top (HPL)?
The history of laminates starts more than 100 years ago with the invention of Formica in 1912. Formica was originally developed as a substitute for the mineral mica in electrical insulation products – hence the name: for mica. HPL is produced by soaking many layers of absorbent craft paper with thermosetting resin. A layer of printed décor paper is then placed on top of the stack of kraft paper and a cellulose overlay is placed on top.
This ‘sandwich’ of layers is then fused together under heat and pressure (more than 1,000 PSI). Heat transforms the resin into plastic which results in the paper sheets being converted into one rigid laminated sheet. The overlay turns into a durable, transparent finish through which the colour or decorative layer is seen.
The final product is incredibly hard wearing. In particular, HPL has a high resistance to chemicals, abrasion, moisture and fire. This makes HPL the perfect choice for use in commercial venues as table and counter tops or of course in your garden
To enable us to offer a 10 year guarantee we use a 5mm semi-round plastic yarn to create our rattan weave which has many advantages to thin flat rattan garden furniture.
5 Reasons Why Our Cotswold Corner Set Is Superior
It looks better – the semi-round weave produces a solid aesthetic.
Substance – because the rattan weave is round, rather than flat, the yarn is much thicker which produces a denser garden product.
Durability – although thick round rattan yarn is much more time consuming to weave, the final result is a stronger and more durable product.
Made For Outdoors – this 5mm rattan weave is UV stable, colourfast, mildew free and stain resistant so it will last more than 10 years outside.
Better Cushions – we use a tighter woven material for our cushion cases and the dense foam insert will retain form.
5 Year Warranty
Yes, our Cotswold rattan garden furniture has a 5 year structural warranty.
