3D lamination, or membrane pressing as it is also known, is, in short, a manufacturing process that involves wrapping a vinyl decorative foil around fibre board, MDF (medium density fibreboard). The MDF is sprayed with a Aquence PU (polyurethane) dispersion adhesive then allowed to dry. A decorative foil is placed over the MDF before it is put through a press, which is heated to a specific temperature to reactivate the glue and pressure added to produce the finished product.
This process is especially popular in the manufacture of kitchens, with the use of high gloss foils producing a gleaming upmarket finish, which is easy to clean and maintain. It is also popular for bedroom and bathroom furniture manufacture.
