Description

Formica® Compact is a high pressure structural laminate, built up from multiple layers of kraft paper with a decorative face on both sides.

Ideally suited to high impact and high humidity environments, Formica Compact has remarkable structural stability and does not require any substrate support in thicknesses over 6 mm. It is impressively strong and damage resistant. Its decorative black core can be machined to create striking features. Formica Compact is certified by the CE Mark to meet or exceed conformity with European consumer safety, health and environmental requirements.
