Polaris HPL — Matt
Description

Polaris HPL is a full-colour core 1mm thick high pressure laminate bonded durably on two sides to European Birch plywood. It features a soft to touch anti-fingerprint matt surface, low-light reflectivity, and is resistant to scratches and abrasions.

Food safety verification tests according to ISO 22196 / JIS Z 2801 conducted by an accredited laboratory to measure the antibacterial performance, demonstrate that the bacterial load is reduced by 99.9% after 24 hours. The structure of Polaris with its high degree of cross-linking makes its surface compact and non-porous. This characteristic doesn’t allow bacterial, fungal and/or micro-organisms colonies to penetrate and proliferate.

  • Finishes: Matt White, Matt Dark Grey, Matt Graphite, and Matt Black.
  • Unique Edge Detail: European birch finished with a innovative solid 1mm through-colour matt laminate perfect for cafes, homes, schools and any commercial space.
  • Oversized Sheet: Comes as a 3m length, ideal for benchtops.
