Mississauga, Ontario- Gracious Living Innovations (GLI) Acquires Technology to Manufacture Laminated Panels

Gracious Living Innovations (GLI) recently acquired technology to manufacture laminated panels. The new in house process can laminate multiple layers of several materials as required for the particular application.

Examples of the process are products such as thermally insulated panels, as pictured above.  In this example the panel has a skin of our beautiful wood look material laminated to a plastic backing sheet, an EPS layer and an aluminum foils (these last two to provide thermal insulation). This is prefabricated to custom size.  This particular panel is used in portable hot tub construction.

Marcio Campos Business Development Manager – Custom Plastic Extrusions commented, "One great thing about this process for us is the ability to butt multiple slats of a given aesthetic profile together and make them a single wider/bigger surface panel. Since there is limit to the width of the profiles we can extrude, this can be interesting."

One application in outdoor furniture, for instance allows the fabrication of a full table top with a wood look finish. Another great advantage is that GLI can provide a great finish surface to a structurally sound part structure provided by the back layers.

Gracious Living Innovations (GLI) laminated panel production process has numerous applications in building and construction as well as industrial applications where a multilayer integrated material solution might be required. This new production process is fully installed and operating at the GLI facility outside of Toronto
