High Pressure Laminate
- 1WHAT IS A HIGH PRESSURE LAMINATE?
High Pressure Laminates as the name suggests is the ideal product for interior/exterior applications made from Kraft paper and decorative paper. It is produced under great pressure and high temperature. Hardened resins provide effective weather.
Protection which makes it capable of withstanding erosion from natural elements. It come with high UV resistance which makes it ideal for exterior and cladding facades.
Exterior Grade compact laminates make the perfect cladding material for buildings requiring ventilated facades. It is resistant and sustainable, easy to machine and install, offering a myriad array of decorative possibilities.

- 6GUIDELINES FOR INSTALLATION SYSTEMS
An efficient air circulation must be secured between Royale Touche HPL compacts and the surface or the coating of the building. The blank grouting spaces allowed for ventilation between the plates should not be filled with any material. An efficient air circulation must be provided from the ground level of the plate to the top edge. A minimum of 50 cm2 space is required for every 1 meter width. If no air ventilation gap is reserved at the construction framework, deformation will occur on the exterior plates.
The varying degree of moisture in the atmosphere changes the dimensions of the HPL ever so slightly. In humid weather conditions, the plates enlarge whereas shrinkage occurs in dry conditions.
The humidity and heat do not always change in the same direction, opposite movements may occur. Therefore leaving expansion spaces between the plates is an absolute requirement. The diameters of mouthpieces drilled for screws, bolts and rivets must be 2-3 mm larger than the diameters of the screws
All hidden screw systems, spaces must be on the construction framework. There must be no silicone used during the grouting process.
The glue mastic should be applied maximum 2 cm from the edge in continuity and maximum 5 cm from the edges at screw installations.
Rivet and screw distance must be minimum 20 mm in between and for hidden screw and hang systems, the distance between screws must be at least 80 mm
Rivet and Screw System
For 6mm and 10 mm panels, rivet and screw system is suitable. This system is also used for supporting the adhesive systems on high-rise buildings to increase the security.
Joint spaces and vertical profile spaces are similar with the adhesive system. Open joints, halved joint and male/female joints are usually used in joint space.
The mouth piece drilling on the centre of the plate is opened with the same diameter as the rivet., other holes are opened 3 mm wider than the rivet and screw diameters, thus enabling movement of plates in case of expansion. The placement of the holes should be minimum 20 mm distance from the plate edge and distance maximum 10 times of the plate thickness.
