Composite Laminates for Protection that Lasts

Protecting décor and aesthetics, overlay papers are used as a protective layer in household and commercial flooring, kitchen countertops, bars, and décor panels.

Pure and highly uniform cellulose papers made from clean bleached pulp, Glatfelter’s composite laminates are engineered to be strong and very absorbent to withstand different levels of wear abrasion. Available clear or tinted, our papers form a film for the embedded melamine resin in the fiber structure. This enhances the appearance of printed décor papers while improving the abrasive resistance and durability.
