A brand new flat sheet laminating line will produce the entire dp-limitless offer. Located within dp-lamination’s 140,000ft² manufacturing facility in Elland, West Yorkshire, the laminator utilises a high bond strength PUR glue line which ensures a superb overall finish on sheet sizes up to 3660 x 1430mm, although 2440mm x 1220mm and 3050mm x 1220mm makes up the majority of the offer.
Group Managing Director Guy Metcalfe takes up the story “…dp-limitless is a logical extension of our offer and one that we have been researching for some time now. Decorative Panels Lamination has always been known as a business that offers a wide range of products on very quick lead times to a very wide market place. We have been innovators in terms of substrate as well as surface materials being the first people in the UK to offer a sheet light weight hollowcore board solution and surface finishes such as BioCote Quartz the first commercially available anti-microbrial sheet material. We wanted to continue this innovative approach and address an area of the market that we had never been near before – that is the manufacture and supply of a range of specialised decorative and high performance products available without commitment to bulk quantities and deliverable from single sheets up to full load quantities – from stock. With such a wide range of innovative surface finishes the potential areas of use for dp-limitless products are vast – from furniture applications to architectural and fit out solutions, the list is endless.”
dp-limitless is a range that offers exactly what the brand says, a limitless number of surface finishes bonded to the substrate of choice, available in quantities as low as one sheet. The core range is extensive and includes an array of materials and finishes.
For part of their range, dp-lamination have partnered with two of the worlds most recognised producers of High Pressure Laminates to be able to offer an impressive range of over 500 designs. 300 decors, unicolours and fantasy designs are from the Abet Laminati collection, providing design solutions for the most demanding of products. The 2017- 2019 Egger Decorative Laminate Collection comprises over 250 laminates available across a spectrum of unicolour, woodgrain and material designs.
The full range of Senoplast Acrylics have been included. These designs are distinguishable by excellent scratch, scour and high UV resistance and include the newly developed Acryl Glass; a coextruded material giving the appearance and depth of a real glass finish, which combined with its high gloss level delivers all the aesthetic advantages of real glass, with the processing and practical advantages of Senoplast.
In addition to the ever popular high gloss acrylic finishes, more and more customers are demanding matt surfaces. The dp-limitless offer includes a supermatt smooth surface from Senoplast which as well as having all the benefits of scratch and scour resistance provided by TopX, is also incredibly resistant to finger marking and sets a bench mark in the industry.
The Technical range includes Renolit Armouren designs, a multi-layered decorative PVC film which offers excellent mechanical resistance and light fastness. With a highly durable anti-microbial surface finish and superior impact resistance, Armouren is the perfect product for use in areas such as healthcare, public buildings, schools, hotels, restaurants and retail outlets.
Real Wood Veneer Laminates are available, protected by thermo setting resin meaning they require no further finishing. A genuine alternative to traditional Wood Veneer surfaces giving an engineered finished product surface solution.
The dp-limitless offer also includes a selection of premium quality Faux Leather finishes conveying a feeling of comfort and elegance. Laminated Faux Leathers are an economical alternative to genuine hide, offering the advantage of a realistic grain structure whilst able to withstand the rigours of daily use.
For the first time ever dp-lamination can offer laminated Real Stone veneer, an innovative product made from a thin layer of stone, either quartzite or slate. Predominantly 2mm thick with a resin reverse and bonded with a high performance PUR adhesive to the substrate. As with all natural products, each sheet is unique and will display many different aspects of the stone structure. The surface is pre-sealed meaning no further surface protection is needed. A cost effective, lightweight and innovative solution that replaces the need for a solid stone product.
As the dp-limitless name suggests just about anything that exists as a sheet veneer can be laminated onto any number of substrates. If you do not see it within the dp-limitless core range on The Decorative Panels Group website – just ask! The Decorative Panels team will help locate and source a supply to satisfy your design needs, or indeed laminate your own supplied material.
