Worktop Textures From Duropal
Duropal Worktops Are Highly Resistant To Heat & Chemicals
Melamine resin is the hardest of all synthetically produced organic materials. This is the reason for the high scratch and wear resistance of HPL. The high impact resistance of the material is due to the elasticity of phenolic resin.
These properties also explain the high resistance of HPL to chemicals and heat. Burning a cigarette on the surface of HPL is one of the quality tests specified in DIN-EN 438, which also determines all the other qualities important for the user.
However, the bottoms of some saucepans can become extremely hot and we recommend using a protective pad.

Cleaning & Caring For Duropal Worktops.
A major advantage of Duropal worktops is that the HPL surface makes cleaning so simple. Usually a moist cloth is sufficient, but use washing-up liquid to get rid of any grease. Stubborn dirt can be removed with an organic solvent such as mentholated spirits or alcohol. Brushes with hard bristles (but not wire brushes) may also be used
