The laminate is a stack of resin impregnated kraft paper sheets covered with a decorative sheet, also protected by a resin. Robust and easy to maintain, the laminate can be installed in one piece, but it can not be installed behind a hob. As for stainless steel, it is particularly appreciated for its modern design and irreproachable hygiene. In addition, it is virtually indestructible and easily combines with all other materials.
