Decorative paper classification of decorative paper can be divided into many kinds according to its quantitative and use.
Poly paper – thin sheet paper.
Paper surface printing wood grain, used for MDF, HDF, plywood veneer, veneer need to use adhesive, after veneer need to finish treatment.
Gorgeous paper – thin sheet paper.
Gorgeous paper already has design and coating on the surface, mainly used for surface decor of MDF, HDF, plywood veneer, veneer. When applied on the board, you only need to apply the adhesive but no need to do the coating decoration again.
The gorgeous paper is suitable for the some decor applicetion that no high requirement of wear resistance.
Pre-painted paper – decorative paper (titanium white paper).
The pre-paint paper was prined with wood grain design, and also be dipped or coated with a small amount of resin. The resin content of pre-painted paper ranges 20% to 60%.
A low amount of resin content is used for MDF veneer. Those with high resin content are used for sealing strips. The adhesive needs to be applied when veneering, and generally, no more finishing is done after veneering. Abrasion resistance is higher than that of gorgeous paper.
Yodean Decor provides a kind of pre-panited paper-finish foil, the surface coating is the PU layer.
Low pressure melamine impregnated paper – decorative paper (titanium white paper).
The low-pressure melamine impregnated paper was printed with a wood grain design on the surface, and also impregnated with low-pressure melamine resin. The resin content of low-pressure melamine impregnated paper ranges 130% to 150%.
For the application, the low-pressure melamine impregnated paper is mainly used for particle board, MDF veneer. No need to apply glue when veneering, no more finishing after veneering. Abrasion resistance is higher than that of pre-painted paper.
High-pressure melamine impregnated paper – decorative paper (titanium white paper).
The paper surface is printed with wood grain, and impregnated with high-pressure melamine resin with resin content ranges 60% to 100%.
The high-pressure melamine impregnated paper is used for manufacturing decorative laminate (fireproof board). The decorative laminate fireproof board is covered with high-pressure melamine impregnated paper. Therefore, the abrasion resistance feature of the fireproof board is fully based on the abrasion resistance of the surface paper.
