What Temperatures Can HPL Withstand Without Deterioration Or Discoloration?

HPL can withstand up to 180° C without deterioration or discoloration. However, this relates to an accidental rather than a regular occurrence in that prolonged and localised heat can cause loss of brightness in the decor colour as well as yellowing and surface blistering. In the kitchen, care should be taken to avoid direct contact with saucepans just taken off the cooker; the bottom of a pan containing hot oil can reach 250° C.
