LPM

Low Pressure Melamine Laminate

Low Pressure
Melamine Laminate

An eco-friendly surface finishing material made with decorative paper on which various patterns are printed, which is impregnated with urea resin and melamine and dried to ensure its forming and attachment to MDF, PB etc. only with thermal pressure and without using any adhesive.

LPM (Low Pressure Melamine) Manufacturing Process

Printed base/decorative paper is impregnated first and second with urea resin and then impregnated or coated top and bottom with melamine resin.

➊ Ordinary decorative, underlay, or overlay paper is used as saturating paper.
First impregnation: foams are removed from inside the paper by running either side in urea and melamine resin and then soaked fully in the resin.
Second impregnation: it goes through a squeeze, which adjusts the level of impregnation according to the type of saturating paper.
First drying: it is dried as it passes under IR or a dry oven to reduce the water content to 10-12%.
Coating: a specified quantity of melamine resin is sprayed over the mesh roll (embossed with particles).
Second drying: the final water content is reduced to 6% by drying it with drying equipment composed of 4 areal fans and radiators.
Cooling: it is cooled by the cooling fan as it passes through the cooling zone.
Cutting: cut to sizes and stacked for packaging units, it is packaged and kept in the storage with isothermal and isohumidity control.

Types of LPM

T-White LPM (developed as first in South Korea)

A product that has upgraded the hiding power of white LPM by adding TiO2 to the LPM resin.
It replaces the white paper with minimum 100g and registers excellent gloss.

General LPM

When laminating LPM on panel, by using various press plates such as glossy, matte, semi-matte, embo, and logo-patterned and thereby expressing a realistic feel, the product can build MFB that flaunts esthetic sense and excellent physical properties.

Recoatable LPM

LPM treated with an additive to enable the application of Polycoat.

  • One-time application of Polycoat achieves a level of gloss that is minimum twice as high as the level of gloss created with two or more applications of Polycoat.
  • It considerably decreases the odor of the Polycoat liquid.
  • Available processes after the attachment of LPM for coating (UV coating / high gloss painting / painting with unsaturated polyester)
Hi-Flex LPM

The type of LPM that minimizes the bending of the board involved in the bonding of one side with a stamping press.

If LPM is employed to either the front or rear side of the sheet, it increases the materials applicable for the opposite side.
