Care guide


We recommend using warm, soapy water or mild household detergent and a soft cloth for cleaning.

  1. Reflective laminates
  2. Magnetic laminates


Dekodur laminates are intended for use as decorative vertical surfaces in interior application, also for surfaces which are not exposed to heavy wear.

Typical applications are: Wall cladding, ceiling cladding, home furniture, hotel and restaurant furniture, fronts of drawers, signs for shops and firms, shelve cladding, counters and displays in shops, surfacing for doors and doorframes, shipbuilding and coach fittings etc.

For surfaces exposed to heavy wear, it is recommended that the surface of the dekodur laminate be protected by a sheet of glass or similar material.

All Dekodur laminates can be sawed, routed, and drilled using carbide tipped tools. All circular saw blades with a sufficiently high number of teeth and a trapezoidal/trapezoidal saw tooth pattern are suitable.

When cutting the boards, pay attention to optimum flatness. If required, use weights while cutting to avoid tears.

Due to the metal core layer for the Magnetic range, flying sparks may be produced during processing. Corresponding safety precautions must be taken.


Caution to be taken when bonding dekodur in surface presses.

  • 1. Maximum temperature 60°C
  • 2. Press pressure 0.15 – 0.20 N/mm² (1.5 – 2.0 bar)
  • 3. Soft cushioning between laminate surface and Press plates.


All standard commercial glues which can be used for bonding standard high pressure laminates can be used.

Glue types

  • 1. Dispersion glues (PVA)
  • 2. Condensation resin glues (Urea resin)
  • 3. Contact glues
  • 4. 2 component glues
  • 5. Hot melt glues


When PU glues are used, great care must be taken that glue residues are completely removed from the surface before they harden.

For contact glues, sufficient application is required on both surfaces to be bonded. Both surfaces need to be adequately dried before being pressed together.

Close adherence to each glue manufacturer’s instructions is necessary to ensure proper precautions and installation.

With compound elements, a symmetric construction is necessary. This is obtained using a balancing sheet which must be bonded to the reverse side. A flat element can be obtained by using a sheet of the same type in 2nd quality or a balancing sheet using the same or similar laminate.
