  • Cutting:
    The same tool that is used to cut Merino Standard HPL can be used for Merino UNI + Unicolour Laminate. As the core is slightly more brittle, care must be taken on reverse side to avoid chipping. When cutting it by hand using fine-toothed saw, it should be supported on both sides. After cutting, edges should be smoothened to reduce post fabrication risk of chipping.


    Gluing and Pressing:
    Merino UNI+ Unicolour Laminate can be both hot and cold pressed. Bonding guides as followed by Merino HPL should be followed for Merino UNI+ Unicolour Laminate also. Similarly all the substrates suitable for Merino HPL are also suitable for Merino UNI+ Unicolour Laminate.


    Adhesives:
    Contact adhesives are recommended. The glue line should be maintained as thin as possible, which is required for proper bonding.


    Fabrication:
    All traditional tools and machines, which are used for Merino HPL, can be used for the fabrication of Merino UNI+ Unicolour Laminate.
