Cleaf is a unique high pressure laminated product that combines 3-dimensional textures with high definition images so precisely aligned you will find it hard to believe that it isn’t real wood.
Thermo Structured Surface (TSS) boards are made from unique decorative kraft papers that are treated with melamine resins, which under heat and pressure become part of the panel itself
Different from TFL, TFM, or LPL, TSS contain up to four layers of kraft papers below the decorative top layer. This results in a deeper texture and a significantly more durable finish
By using a combination of high heat, 100 lbs per square inch of pressure (4 times more pressure than used to create standard melamine board), and additional layers of kraft papers, TSS becomes more like HPL or HPDL than a melamine surface
Applying texture through a direct press (as opposed to release papers) combined with a Class B dry heat rating for distortion of color, CLEAF guarantees the quality of the finished product long after installation
The press delivers100 lbs/cm2 (4 x more than melamine); the heat, pressure and additional kraft papers align CLEAF closer to laminated HPL than a melamine surface with impact, scratch and wear resistance
Applying texture through a direct press (as opposed to release papers) combined with a Class B dry heat rating for distortion of colour, CLEAF guarantees the quality of the finished product long after installation
Cleaf is available in 2-sided panels (5/16” & 3/4” thick) along with matching edgebanding in (23mm, 43mm and 65 MM) Widths.
