There are different types of laminate, but the best is HPL

These are the finishes par excellence in modern kitchens: their quality lies, especially in recent times, in their incredible imitative ability, which accurately reproduces other materials at a fraction of the cost. The advances in production have now achieved extremely high levels of imitation, and are capable of duplicating any type of surface, from wood to cement effect.

Laminate tops for Snaidero kitchens are made with particle board that is moisture resistant, and HPL (HIGH PRESSURE LAMINATE) i.e. a laminate consisting of several layers of paper impregnated with thermosetting resins and compacted through the combined action of heat (140°/150°) and high pressure (< 7MPa). The result is a stable and non-reactive material, which is hygienic, waterproof and highly resistant to abrasion, scratches and contact with food.


To clean these types of surfaces, we recommend you use non-abrasive, neutral liquid detergent solutions diluted in water (solution at 10-20%) or concentrated if surfaces are very dirty and greasy, applying it over the whole surface using a soft sponge. After rinsing, we suggest you dry the surfaces with a clean, soft cloth to avoid water stagnation and the formation of limescale stains.
