Types of phenolic boards

There are currently two main types of phenolic boards used in the construction sector and in the design of furniture for large areas. Phenolic compact boards (HPL) are made from agglutinated paper and phenolic resin, while phenolic plywood boards are made from pressed wood plywood together with phenolic resin.
