Gloster COM Sheet
HPL (High Pressure Laminate) is a flat panel, based on thermosetting resins, homogeneously reinforced with wood based fibers and manufactured under high pressure and at high temperatures.
Gloster uses the architectural grade of HPL (Trespa Meteon) for our table tops. This grade of HPL is UV resistant and extremely weather resistant. Neither sun, rain (including acid rain) nor moisture have any effect on the material's surface or core. Table tops are not affected by moisture and are not susceptible to weathering, mold or rot.
The smooth panel has a pore free surface structure, ensuring that practically no dirt accumulates. Whatever the color of the surface however, the edge of the table top is always black.
Cleaning Table Top
The only maintenance required for HPL is regular wiping with clean cloth and warm, diluted, neutral detergent to remove surface spillages.
Spillages of wine, coffee, ketchup, oils and acidic substances such as vinegar should always be wiped clean immediately.
Material Properties - EP Finish Stainless Steel
Gloster's electropolished (EP) finish is offered as a premium alternative to our standard brushed finish or for furniture used in coastal environments.
Electropolishing is widely used in the electronics, food and medical industries and on components for cruise ships and yachts, where a corrosion resistant, smooth and easy to maintain surface is of vital importance. Electropolishing is an electrochemical process whereby the combination of an electrical current and a strong acid erodes the surface of the stainless steel substrate atom by atom. This process removes much of the iron from the surface of the steel, but leaves the chrome intact, resulting in more shiny, but much improved corrosion resistant surface.
Cleaning - EP Finish Stainless Steel
Despite EP stainless steel being largely resistant to corrosion, in time brown spots may still appear on the stainless steel surface. These deposits can be removed using Gloster's Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polisher, which cleans and restores the new look of EP stainless steel furniture and makes the surface repellent to both dirt and water.
With all our standard and EP finish stainless steel products we include a Scotchbrite pad. If any brown spots appear on the stainless steel they can be easily cleaned by gently rubbing the surface of the steel, in the direction of the brushed finish, with the Scotchbrite pad. We advise that EP finish items are not rubbed excessively in this way as there is a risk of removing the EP finish.
