Compact Laminate - Durability

Compact Laminate is a high-pressure solid composite designed for high-touch and high-use applications. Extremely durable, Compact Laminate provides superior resistance to impact, scratch, moisture, and stains.


Compact Laminate is a long-lasting, durable solution for high-impact surfaces such as lockers and cabinets, elevator cabs, wall panels, casework, shelving, specialty furniture, fixtures, and partitions.

  • Scratch Resistance
    Compact Laminate features higher scratch and abrasion resistance than comparable laminates to help provide lower maintenance, and long-lasting performance.
  • Impact and Mar Resistance
    Compact Laminate is an extremely durable, high-impact resistant material available in thicknesses from 1/10” to 1”. Structural in nature, Compact Laminate is ideal for lockers, cabinets, elevator cabs, wall panels, casework, shelving, furniture table tops, fixtures, and partitions.
  • Water & Moisture Resistance
    Compact Laminate is non-porous. The edges are easily finished, eliminating the need to apply any type of edgeband. This makes it ideal for applications that are exposed to water and moisture.

  • Chemical Resistance
    For applications that have greater exposure to a variety of chemicals, Compact Lab-Grade is designed for laboratory work surfaces where chemical resistance is critical.

 Clean & Disinfect

Cleaning refers to the removal of germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces. It does not kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.

Disinfecting refers to using chemicals, for example, EPA-registered disinfectants, to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.

  • Non-porous
    Makes it stain and moisture resistant and easy to clean, no need for sealing.
  • Easy to Clean and Disinfect
    Residential and commercial customers are now demanding surfaces that stand up to commercial cleaners and disinfectants.
  • Cleaner and Disinfectant Resistance

    Wilsonart® HPL can handle many types of disinfectants. Refer to our Care & Maintenance Instructions as well as Cleaners & Disinfectants document in the resources section.

  • Stain Resistance
