Overlay Paper

Overlay paper is a thin and sturdy paper sheet which, due to its properties, protects the materials on which it is applied, thus affording more resistance to the surface.

• Basic Overlay
Targeted at the high-pressure laminate (HPL) industry, where it provides a better finish and more resistance to the final product.

• Abrasive Overlay
Overlay paper enhanced with aluminum trioxide, to increase surface resistance.
It is often used on flooring and on low and high pressure (LPL and HPL) laminates.  Levels of resistance: AC1, AC2, AC3, AC4 and AC5.

• Liquid Overlay
Overlay paper prepared to receive the aluminum trioxide in the
customer’s production line. It can turn the paper from an AC1 into an AC5.

Why Choose Glatfelter Composite Laminates?

• Excellent wet strength for good runnability.
• Controlled porosity/absorbency for high wear resistance, clarity,
and resin penetration in X,Y,Z directions.
• pH-value/disc-cure for hardening (curing) of
the press resin/post-forming.
• Controlled levels of wear resistance depending on aluminum oxide content proportion and carrier absorption capability.
• Highly uniform sheet formation for clear or ultra-clear papers
with excellent clarity.
• Manufactured in grades between 22 and 70 g/m² and are available with a machine finish or matte glazed surface.
