High-pressure decorative laminates (HPL) - Sheets based on thermosetting resins (Usually called Laminates) - Part 6: Classification and specifications for Exterior-grade Compact laminates of thickness 2 mm and greater

This Part of EN 438 applies to Exterior-grade Compact laminates of thickness 2mm and greater. It specifies requirements for standard and flame-retardant laminates intended for use under outdoor weather conditions such as direct sunlight rain and frost. Two levels of performance are specified; one for moderate exterior conditions, and the other for severe exterior conditions. Laminates complying with this Part of EN 438 are referred to as Exterior-grade Compact laminates, and are characterized by their high tensile strength, high impact resistance, thermal shock resistance, and resistance to weather and corrosion. They are available in a variety of decorative colours, with high resistance to colour change and aging in outdoor applications. When they are self-supporting Exterior-grade Compact laminates are ready for installation, and only require cutting to size, drilling, etc. to suit the application. EN 438-2 specifies the methods of test relevant to this Part of EN 438.

Dekorative Hochdruck-Schichtpressstoffplatten (HPL) - Platten auf Basis härtbarer Harze (Schichtpressstoffe) - Teil 6: Klassifizierung und Spezifikationen für Kompakt-Schichtpressstoffe für die Anwendung im Freien mit einer Dicke von 2 mm und größer

Dieser Teil von prEN 438 beschreibt ein Klassifizierungssystem für Hochdruck-Schichtpressstoffe (im Besonde-ren Kompakt-Schichtpressstoffe) zur Anwendung unter Witterungsbedingungen im Freien, wie Sonnenlicht, Regen und Frost. Zwei Leistungsqualitäten werden festgelegt; eine für mäßige Außenbedingungen und die andere für starke Außenbedingungen. Schichtpressstoffe, die diesem Teil von prEN 438 entsprechen, werden als Aussen-Kompakt-Schichtpressstoffe (engl: Exterior grade Compact laminates) bezeichnet und sind charakterisiert durch hohe Zug-festigkeit, hohe Beständigkeit gegen Stoßbeanspruchung, Beständigkeit gegen Temperaturwechsel und die Beständigkeit gegen Witterung und Korrosion. Sie sind in einer Vielzahl dekorativer Farben mit einer hohen Beständigkeit gegen Farb-veränderungen und Alterung bei der Anwendung im Freien erhältlich.
Selbsttragende Außen-Kompakt-Schichtpreßstoffe sind verlegefertig vorgerichtet, so dass es bei der vorge-sehenen Anwendung nur erforderlich ist, sie zuzuschneiden, zu bohren usw.
Dieser Teil von prEN 438 gilt nur für Außen-Kompakt-Schichtpressstoffe entsprechend, wie in Abschnitt 3 festgelegt. Die für diesen Teil von prEN 438 zutreffenden Prüfverfahren sind in prEN 438-2 festgelegt.

Stratifiés décoratifs haute pression (HPL) - Plaques à base de résines thermodurcissables (communément appelées stratifiés) - Partie 6 : Classification et spécifications des stratifiés compacts pour usage en extérieur d'épaisseur égale ou supérieure à 2 mm

La présente partie de l'EN 438 s'applique stratifiés compacts pour usage en extérieur d'épaisseur égale ou supérieure à 2 mm. Elle spécifie les exigences pour les stratifiés résistants au feu destinés à être exposés à des conditions atmosphériques extérieures tels que le rayonnement solaire direct, la pluie et le gel. Deux niveaux de performance sont spécifiés, l'un pour les conditions extérieures modérées et l'autre pour des conditions extérieures rigoureuses. Les stratifiés conformes à la présente partie de l'EN 438 sont désignés comme des stratifiés compacts pour usage en extérieur et se caractérisent par leur résistance élevée à la traction leur résistance élevée au choc, leur résistance au choc thermique et leur résistance aux intempéries et à la corrosion. Ils sont disponibles en diverses couleurs décoratives et présentent une résistance élevée à la décoloration et au vieillissement dans les applications à l'extérieur. Lorsqu'ils sont autoporteurs, les stratifiés compacts pour usage en extérieur sont prêts à être mis en �uvre et n'ont plus qu'à être découpés, percés, etc., en fonction de leur utilisation.
L'EN 438-2 spécifie les méthodes d'essai correspondant à la présente partie de l'EN 438.

The surface layer(s) on one or both sides, having decorative colours or designs, are impregnated with suitable thermosetting resins (aminoplastic based resins or others). A suitable outer layer or coating may be added to enhance weather and light protecting properties. The core layers are impregnated with phenolic based resins, and may be combined with other fibres and/or fillers during the manufacturing process The high pressure process is defined as the simultaneous application of heat (temperature ≥ 120 °C) and high specific pressure ( ≥ 5 MPa), to provide flowing and subsequent curing of the thermosetting resins to obtain a homogeneous non-porous material with increased density ( ≥ 1,35 g/cm³), and with the required surface finish.
