The Serigrafia Longline HPL laminates have an innovative textured surface which consists of close vertical lines simulating wallpaper but with a 3D-effect. The textured designs are applied to the laminate by silkscreen technique. The sixteen designs, created by Italian designer and architect Paola Navone, are inspired by nature. They range from dandelions and other flowers to rose petals and leaves. The laminate consists of layers of kraft paper impregnated with thermosetting resins and an outer layer, on one or both sides, if decorative paper impregnated with aminoplastic resins. These are all bonded together by means of heat and high pressure.
