HPL To USA,HPL plywood to the USA always require very high quality veneer core platform ,need very special HPL sheets ,the color and finishes are simple ,normally warm white and gray white ,matt finishes ,midium matt finishes and heavy matt finishes .
The HPL plywood exported to the USA is not so big volume like Israel and Philipine and Vietanm and Middle East markets ,Many importers buy the HPL plywood from China but the volume is very less .And ,most of the HPL plywood manufacturers are come from Linyi and Xuzhou places .Some HPL plywood manufacturers they don’t produce the veneer core substrate ,they buy outside and then make the HPL COLD PRESSING LAMINATION in their own factory .Some produce the veneer core platform and then make the HPL lamination in their own factory .
But mostly the HPL sheets are from Changzhou ,henan ,linyi places .The quality differences are so big that you can imagine the prices difference are also big .
The platform of the HPL have various quality levels ,one step hot pressing ,two step hot pressing ,laminated with whole piece of birch or red hardwood face veneer under the HPL ,or without ,will also decide the final HPL plywood quality .
