Frequently Asked Questions - F.A.Q.

Do I need to order a minimum quantity?

No, there is no minimum quantity mandatory to pass an order. We make HPL panels on demand.

The manufacturing time is 3 weeks from the moment we received your signed quotation, your compliant print files and your BAT. Do not hesitate to contact us to assess more suitable deadlines according to your requirements.

DAP can deliver anywhere in the EU.

For the rest of the world, please contact us for additionnal advices.

To personalize a HPL panel, you just need to send us your visual which will be printed and integrated into the laminated panel by digital inclusion in our workshop.

Your file must be in High Definition (min 300dpi), vectorized and CMJN.
Format :
– .EPS
– vectorized .PDF
– .AI

It is necessary to incorporate in your visual the cut lines and the lost edges:

5 mms if format < A2
10 mm if > A2 or Recto/Verso
20 mm if > 2000 mm or joined

The 0,8mm is mandatorily glued on a support, including wood-based substrates such as particleboard and MDF panels. It can also be applied to metal substrates but requires special expertise.
Bonding is done either with white glue or with neoprene glue.

The 3mm and the 6mm must be drilled and screwed.
However, it is possible to glue them if the size does not exceed A4 (300 x 210mm).

The 10mm and the 13mm :
– either drilled and screwed but with visible screws,
– or invisible fixation with inserts. They have to be screwed.

The drilling holes must always be 2 mm larger than the fixing screw. Do not
block the screw to allow the panel its dimensional variations.

It is possible in HPL to screw directly with parker screws. To do this, make a pre-hole with a small diameter, blow to remove dust and then screw directly. Pay attention to the length of the screws.

Adhesive fixing is not recommended for formats larger than A4 (excluding 0.8mm), especially for outdoors.

When the Stratimage® panels are contained in a structure, it is necessary to provide a clearance on the perimeter of the panels, for their expansion (from 2 to 5mm smaller than the frames).

It is also possible to glue aluminum rails to the back of the panels for fixing to posts or even to the wall. These rails can be glued, after sanding, with silicone glues in cartridge type Sicaflex for the interior (drying must be at least 48 hours) or with MS Polymer adhesives type WÜRTH HIGH TACK for outdoors.

> Caution for installation :
– In order not to make the panels bend: air must be allowed to circulate on the front and rear sides of the panel
– Remove the protective film before installing the panel
– Avoid storing the panels for too long.
– If the installation must be done indoors, leave the panels in the room at least 48 hours before installing them.

Laminate panels meet M2 standards “hardly flammable” by default. Panels meeting the M1 standard “non-flammable” are available on request.

We can create panels with a maximum size of 1200 x 2700 mm. If your project requires a larger panel, we have solutions to assemble several panels side by side. The jointing is done at DAP and you will receive your panels ready to install.

An HPL laminate is composed of 65% kraft paper and 35% thermosetting resin which polymerize under the action of heat and pressure.

Yes, HPL panels are 100% recyclable. Our waste is recycled by a company which transforms it into laminated parquet boards.

The waste is not classified as hazardous material and can be disposed of in accordance with national and / or regional regulations.

An HPL panel has a very long lifespan, which adds to its eco-label.

DAP is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. T: +33 (0) 4 76 75 51 75

The HPL can be cleaned with common cleaning products, water and soap. For tags and graffiti you can use White Spirit or acetone using a soft cloth.
