Recommended Process Parameters
1. The temperatures of upper and lower hot platens are often set at 202°C and 198°C respectively, and please refer to the curing temperature of applied melamine paper.
2. Under most conditions, the closing time is 30 seconds. For V-groove flooring, 40 seconds is recommended.
3. The pressure is kept at 18-20Mpa.

Dilemma of High Glossy Laminate Flooring Manufacturers
In recent years, high gloss flooring is becoming more and more popular on the world market due to its shining color and mirror-like surface. More importantly, its production technique only changes slightly while maintaining the low production cost. So, many flooring manufacturers start to make this kind of flooring.

However, high gloss flooring is different from common flooring. Accordingly, it has some unique requirements during production. For example, high gloss flooring needs lower temperature and longer dwell time when compared with common types. Moreover, common hot press usually has only one work cavity. As a result of the long closing time and one work work layer, the output is limited.

Our Solution
Given this, our company successfully develops this hot press for high glossy laminate flooring. This product has several work layers, and it is outfitted with a multi-layer infeed belt conveyor. Hence, double side pressing is realized in all work layers, and the production efficiency is increased to a large extent.
