Dekodur Alu-Kompakt boards
Dekodur Alu-Kompakt boards with aluminium inlays are high-pressure composite materials based on duromer
high-pressure laminates (HPL) according to DIN EN 438 HGS.
Due to the use of aluminium strips in the board core, the stability and breaking strength become very high with
low board thickness and low weight.
Dekodur Alu-Kompakt boards with aluminium inlays can be sawn, milled,
drilled and punched without any problems.
Thanks to the integrated aluminium layer, Dekodur Alu-Kompakt boards are absolutely steam-tight. The boards
offer high impact strength, low splitting risk and good heat dissipation properties. Dekodur Alu-Kompakt boards
are compact boards with several aluminium core layers.
The aluminium serves to increase the mechanical properties,
to provide improved stability at different climatic conditions on the front and back of the boards and/or as a decorative
element for tabletop edges, for instance. The surface properties of Dekodur Alu-Kompakt boards match those of Dekodur.

Farewell party for Volkmar André
Volkmar André, long-serving managing director of the DEKODUR and A&G Companies,
was bid farewell by his employees with all due ceremony on 11th December 2015.
NEWS November 2015
Volkmar André will celebrate his 75th birthday on 22 November 2015 and
cease his activity as CEO of DEKODUR, the traditional manufacturer of decorative high
pressure laminate, by the end of the year.
The native Berliner is said to be the "driving force" in the product development.
beginning of the 1960s DEKODUR, as first manufacturer of decorative laminate with
genuine metal surface, marked a milestone in the history of HPL material. Numerous
patents and copyrights evidence the successful work.
Innovations have always been of great importance to the HPL supplier DEKODUR.
Implementing this strategy, carpenter, merchant and economist Volkmar André –
who, prior to his career in Hirschhorn, had also been working as assistant to the
management of Massey Ferguson in the USA – could place his company successfully
on the national and international market. The further development of the HPL material
system has always been a challenge and motivation.
At the end of the year, Volkmar André will pass the management of the DEKODUR Company to his son Christopher André
who, together with a qualified team, will continue to run the company in the 8th generation. Volkmar André will continue
to support the company as consultant and chairman of the advisory board.
