Prime Laminate

Prime Laminate offers the best of both worlds.   Hard wearing, great looking high pressure laminates in large sheet sizes that can be used as a post-formable benchtop or options that come in a smaller, more affordable size for use as a pressed decorative panel.

Our Benchtop HPL range has more than 45 designs, most are post-formable and top sellers have matched ABS edgetape. 
Our Pressed HPL range offers more than 35 designs which can be pressed on your choice of MDF or plywood, and most have matched edgetape.  This range features a range of metallic designs along with magnetic and writeable whiteboard.   This range has Environmental Choice NZ accreditation.

Our popular Soft-Matt laminate designs feature in both the Benchtop HPL and Pressed HPL Panel ranges.
