printing and processing decor paper

printing process

Decor papers are usually printed using the intaglio process. In this process, ink is applied to the paper by an engraved roller. The interplay between the paper color and various printing inks enables limitless decorative designs. These designs range from wood and stone patterns all the way to fantasy designs.

Impregnating Process

In order to join decor papers to wood materials, the paper is soaked in melamine, urea or acrylate resin, depending on the application. Because these papers are highly absorbent and penetrable, they are able to soak up twice their own weight in resin.

Our decor papers are highly resistant to moisture, which allows them to pass smoothly through the impregnating plant.

coating process

Decor papers are joined to wooden boards using the latest pressing and laminating systems. High temperatures and the right pressure in the presses cause the impregnated resin to harden. This is what bonds the decor paper to the wooden material. In the laminating process, this is done by hot melt adhesives. Wooden materials can be given an almost entirely natural surface feel using textured pressed sheets.
