Thermally Fused Laminate (TFL) Panels for Decorative Surfaces

Thermally Fused Laminate Decorative Panels, once known as thermally fused melamine or TFM, is made by fusing a resin-impregnated sheet of décor paper directly to a substrate. There is no kraft paper used in Thermally Fused Laminates, and the resulting panel is ready for finishing.  Heat and pressure activate the resin in the saturated TFL sheet, creating a cross-linked bond with the substrate. This effectively seals the substrate. Particleboard and MDF are ideal substrates for TFL because they are consistent, uniform in strength and free of defects.

Thermally Fused Laminate decorative panels can be manufactured with enhanced visual and performance characteristics. Surface textures are created with steel press plates that emboss the decorative overlay to heighten the realism of wood grain, stone or abstract designs. Steel press plates can also be used to create or control the gloss level of the surface. TFL panels have excellent scratch and wear resistance.

TFL Panels are used in the following:

  • Laminate Flooring
  • Office Furniture
  • Closet System Components,
  • Store Fixtures
  • Cabinets

It is also an appropriate spec in healthcare, hospitality, commercial and retail settings. TFL panels typically require a decorative edge treatment and can be specified with or without edge, and with single or opposite-side face treatments.
