For the laminate industry Glatfelter offers unique high end overlay papers be it for high pressure laminates or flooring laminates. Glatfelter is the first supplier worldwide to make use of inclined wire technology for the manufacture of overlay paper named as TVO/ADO grade. The paper produced from such machine is very voluminous even with low substance weight. The dimensional stability of this paper is remarkable and gives a very uniform trouble free impregnation. Only softwood pulp is used for TVO/ADO overlays which due to it’s long fibre and the voluminous nature imparted by the production process allows it to take in more resin as compared to conventional overlay paper. This essential property makes it the ideal overlay for dry pressing of high pressure laminates.
