Types of toilet cubicle materials make up the appearance of a restroom. But modern restroom are chasing functions and low price. So choosing a proper material for toilet partition is important and will be decisive on budget and serve time.
Here are the 4 main types of materials for toilet cubicles you might find in market:
* High Pressure Laminate (HPL)
High pressure laminate board is made of layers of kraft paper phenolic treated and decorative paper melamine treated. Thin HPL board often used as decorative covering board as it is resistance to fire, water and has thousands of colors. As for Thick HPL board, it has a wider use. You can regard thick HPL board as “solid phenolic” or “compact laminate”. Compact laminate are often for toilet cubicles stall, lab tale top and kitchen counter top. It is also an important material for Locker materials.
* PVC (Unique Jialifu Toilet Cubicle Materials)
Jialifu PVC board is a kind of special PVC composite board. It contains PVC core and HPL surface which make it stronger and more beautiful. PVC is in higher strength than another popular material, solid plastic. But the resistance to scratch and deformation are no match to it. For toilet cubicle manufacturing, PVC is an idea material but only lack of a high strength surface. And that’s the reason we add HPL layers on PVC core material.
* Solid Plastic (HDPE)
Solid Plastic and PVC are made of the similar material. HDPE, which refers to High density polyethylene, is a polyethylene thermoplastic made of petroleum while PVC is vinyl polymer. It has a wide uses and are available for many colors. HDPE is easy to shape and will never get rust. For that reason, HDPE performs well in wet environment.
* Stainless Steel
Stainless steel is stainless and waterproof. For a toilet cubicle, the most important function is decorating the restroom and creating a comfortable environment. Although stainless steel materials are good looking with textured surface, they are still too expensive and lack of colors.
No need to mention the features of stainless steel toilet cubicles, they are classic and strong. Most of stainless steel material for toilet cubicle has a core of cardboard. When it comes to Jialifu, stainless steel, galvanized steel surface layer and aluminum alloy honeycomb core are main materials in building a Jialifu stainless steel board. So it is much more stronger than most products you can find on market.
After plan and installation of toilet cubicles, the cleaning problem comes. Although many toilet cubicle materials like compact laminate and HDPE claimed that they only need low maintenance, the most decisive elements of service time are still the cleaning and regular maintenance. Get information and advice from manufacturers will be helpful for your toilet cubicle’s longevity.
