Limitations on Use

Laminex High Pressure Laminate has good colour retention and dimensional stability in normal interior applications, however, prolonged exposure to sunlight may cause shrinkage and/or some change in colour. It is therefore not recommended for external applications or interior applications with prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.

Please note that darker colours, semi-gloss and gloss finishes will show scratches and superficial wear and tear more readily than lighter colours or lower gloss finishes.
