Description / Abstract:

This part of ISO 4586 specifies performance requirements for high-pressure decorative laminates (HPL, HPDL) intended for interior use that have core compositions not covered by ISO 4586-1 through ISO 4586-7. The core composition types (coloured core and metal reinforced core) are defined in this part of ISO 4586.

High-pressure decorative laminates are characterized by their qualities, durability and functional performance. HPL sheets are available in a wide variety of colours, patterns and surface finishes; they are resistant to wear, scratching, impact, moisture, heat and staining; and possess good hygienic and anti-static properties, being easy to clean and maintain.

ISO 4586-2 specifies the methods of test relevant to this part of ISO 4586.

In an effort to harmonize ISO 4586 with other High-Pressure Decorative Laminate standards, multiple methods may be published that demonstrate similar properties. In these instances, the same test method title is given and is annotated as either "Method A" or "Method B". This is the case in the following tests: Edge Squareness - 8/9, Dry Heat – 17/18 Dimensional Stability at Elevated Temperatures - 19/20, Dimensional Stability at Ambient Temperature - 21/22, Staining - 30/31, Lightfastness - 32/33, Cigarette Burns - 36/37, Formability - 38/39, and Blistering - 40/41. In these instances, either method may be utilized in testing. Compliance to both methods is not required. While these tests are similar they are by no means identical and results of one method do not necessarily correspond to the results of the accompanying test. In these situations, consult the documentation in specific sections of ISO 4586 for performance requirements. Each specific method has performance requirements particular to that method for individual grades of high-pressure decorative laminate.
