Different types of laminates that Novacel protects

An answer for laminate manufacturing processes

There is a Novacel solution for all types of laminates, whatever the downstream process.

From production to installation, HPL surfaces undergo a large number of stresses and transformations. The quality of the finish needs to be preserved during transport between production plants and manufacturers of furniture or other items.

The manufacture of furniture, partitions, decorative elements, etc. requires a large number of industrial operations.

Gluing with or without heat, post-forming, cutting, milling, drilling, routing, automatic handling, assembly etc. are all operations that can damage surfaces. 

Advantages of protective film for laminates

However, the journey of your laminate is not over when the industrial process has been completed. Items (furniture, partitions, cladding, etc.) manufactured without harm to their value-added must then be transported and installed. Strong and well adapted protection is necessary to accompany the laminate throughout this complex process. 

Choosing the right Novacel protective film can be a source of savings and reduced wastage.

Protection for smooth, glossy and matt laminate surfaces

Whatever the decorative laminate finish, Novacel can always provide exactly the right solution for your needs:

  • Protection with an outdoor exposure warranty,
  • Film with high thermal and mechanical resistance for post-forming operations,
  • Antimicrobial protection,
  • Standard protection.

The surface finish is the crucial element for selecting the right protection film. The end-use of the decorative laminate is also key.
