Thermally fused laminate (TFL) and standard laminates have both come a long way in design and finishes, with a variety of combinations to choose from. These high-quality wood-based solutions, used for furniture and interior design, are ideal for vertical and horizontal applications. So, what are the main differences between these two?
Thermally Fused Laminate (TFL)
Wood-based boards that are coated with a decor paper
soaked in melamine resin
Impact and wear resistant (normal level)
Pre-fabrication saves millworkers time and money
(just cut and apply edge banding)
Ideal for vertical applications
Made of core paper layers (high impact resistance) and decor paper impregnated with phenolic and melamine resins
Overlay provides high wear resistance
Versatile, flexible and postformable (standard laminates only)
Must be applied to a substrate (multiple kinds of core boards)
Ideal for horizontal applications
Eurodekor TFL Particleboard
Our Eurodekor TFL particleboard is produced by fusing resin-impregnated decor paper directly onto both sides of our Eurospan Particleboard substrate. Heat and pressure activate the resin to effectively seal the substrate.
TFL boards reproduce the look and feel of realistic woodgrain, concrete, or material designs. TFL panels are manufactured with enhanced performance characteristics that deliver the features you need to fulfill your design vision.
As a pre-fabricated panel, the boards only require cutting and edge banding, saving time and resources
Durable and hard-wearing
The decor paper is permanently fused to the substrate and won't peel away
Architectural Wall Paneling
Laminates are both versatile and hard-wearing. They are ideal for mid- to high-traffic surface areas, curved applications and areas in need of postforming (standard laminates only).
Our laminates offer a multi-layer construction, with a layer of resin-infused decorative paper on the surface and multiple layers of kraft paper in the core. Laminates must be bonded to a substrate, such as particleboard or MDF, during the finishing process.
