High-pressure decorative laminates (HPL) - Sheets based on thermosetting resins (Usually called Laminates) - Part 7: Compact laminate and HPL composite panels for internal and external wall and ceiling finishes

This document specifies characteristics for compact laminate panels and HPL composite panels both for non-structural uses in interior or external wall and ceiling finish applications (including in suspended ceiling).
This document deals with compact laminate panels of thickness 2 mm and greater.
The compact laminate panels are produced by using a high pressure process and the HPL composite panels are produced bonding an HPL sheet to a substrate.
This document covers compact laminate panels with the following types of laminates:

This document covers full size and cut-to-size compact laminate panels and HPL composite panels, e.g. tiles and sidings.
This document specifies only compact laminate panels and HPL composite panels mechanically fixed using e. g. screws or rivets.
Both the compact laminate panels and HPL composite panels may contain flame retardant to improve their reaction to fire performance.
This document also specifies provisions for the assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) of the characteristics and includes provisions for marking these panels.
This document does not cover:
a)   HPL sheets less than 2 mm thick as defined in EN 438-3:2016, EN 438-8:2018 or EN 438-9:2017, which are not glued on a substrate;

1 Scope

This document specifies characteristics for compact laminate panels and HPL composite panels both for

non-structural uses in interior or external wall and ceiling finish applications (including in suspended

ceiling).
This document deals with compact laminate panels of thickness 2 mm and greater.

The compact laminate panels are produced by using a high pressure process and the HPL composite

panels are produced bonding an HPL sheet to a substrate.

This document covers compact laminate panels with the following types of laminates:

— compact laminates, as defined in EN 438-4:2016;
— exterior-grade compact laminates, as defined in EN 438-6:2016;

— pearlescent compact laminates, metal compact laminates and wood veneer compact laminates, as

defined in EN 438-8:2018;

— coloured core layer compact laminates and metal reinforced core layer compact laminates, as defined

in EN 438-9:2017.

This document covers full size and cut-to-size compact laminate panels and HPL composite panels, e.g.

tiles and sidings.

This document specifies only compact laminate panels and HPL composite panels mechanically fixed

using e.g. screws or rivets.

Both the compact laminate panels and HPL composite panels may contain flame retardant to improve

their reaction to fire performance.

This document also specifies provisions for the assessment and verification of constancy of performance

(AVCP) of the characteristics and includes provisions for marking these panels.
This document does not cover:

a) HPL sheets less than 2 mm thick as defined in EN 438-3:2016, EN 438-8:2018 or EN 438-9:2017,

which are not glued on a substrate;

b) overlaid or veneered wood-based panels, where the overlay/veneer is not an HPL;

c) HPL composite panels intended for use as floor coverings;
d) panels used for fire protection of walls or ceilings;

e) performances of installed systems for walls and ceilings with compact or composite high pressure

laminate panels.

Note 1 to entry: Typical values for the high pressure process are: a temperature of ≥ 120 °C and a pressure

of ≥ 5 MPa.
3.1.2
surface layer

upper decorative layer consisting in one or more sheets of fibrous material (usually paper) impregnated

with aminoplastic thermosetting resins (usually melamine based resins) or other curable resins or other

decorative design surfaces which are not necessarily treated with thermosetting resin

Note 1 to entry: The surface layers can appear on one or both side(s) of the laminate(s). In case of one-sided

laminates, the back of the sheet(s) may be made suitable for adhesive bonding to a substrate.

Note 2 to entry: Examples of decorative design surface are metal foils, wood-veneers or textiles.

3.1.3
core layer

core layer consisting of fibrous materials (usually paper) impregnated with thermosetting resins (usually

phenolic based resins) or other curable resins, eventually reinforced by metal layer(s) or metal mesh(es)

and others which are not necessarily treated with thermosetting resin
3.1.4
compact laminate panel

panel consisting of decorative surface layer(s) and core layers bonded together by a high pressure process

with a thickness of 2 mm or greater
3.1.5
HPL composite panel
panel produced by adhesively bonding an HPL to one or both sides of a substrate
3.1.6
substrate of the HPL composite panels
board to which the HPL is bonded

Note 1 to entry: The substrate can be a wood based product (e.g. particleboard, plywood or fibreboard), a mineral

board (e.g. calcium silicate), an expanded honeycomb, a metal sheet or plastic material, organic or inorganic fibre

boards.
3.1.7
pearlescent compact laminate panel

compact laminate panel, the surface layer of which consists of a pearlescent effect decorative paper, which

is impregnated with aminoplastic thermosetting resins (usually melamine based resins)

wood veneer compact laminate panel

compact laminate panel, the surface layer of which consists of a wood veneer, which is covered by a

protective melamine layer
3.1.10
coloured core layer compact laminate panel

compact laminate panel, the core layer of which consists of coloured fibrous materials (usually paper)

impregnated with aminoplastic thermosetting resins (usually melamine based resins) or fibrous

materials (usually paper) impregnated with coloured aminoplastic thermosetting resins (usually

melamine based resins)
3.1.11
metal reinforced core layer compact laminate panel

compact laminate panel, the core layer of which consists of metal layer(s) or mesh(es) and cellulosic

fibrous layers (usually paper) impregnated with phenolic thermosetting resins or aminoplastic

thermosetting resins (usually melamine based resins)
3.1.12
exterior-grade compact laminate panel

compact laminate panel for use under outdoor weather conditions such as direct sunlight rain and frost
