HPL expert, Unnikrishnan, no more

Mr T.K. Unnikrishnan, consultant and expert in the laminate and plywood industry in India, passed away recently at his home in Kerala.

He was 81 years old.

Born and brought up in Vellinezhi (Palakkad district), he completed his higher education at St Thomas College, Trichur, where he got exposure to organic chemistry.

After a brief stint in the automobile industry, Unnikrishnan started his journey in the high pressure laminates (HPL) manufacturing industry with Formica India.

He spent nearly 55 years in various capacities with many reputed organisations in the laminate and plywood industry.

Later, he was also a consultant to many HPL projects across the country.

Utilising his extensive knowledge about HPL, he authored a book, ‘Chemistry & Technology of High Pressure Laminates’, in 2021. Abridged versions of this book are being serialised in WoodNews (including this edition) for the benefit of the HPL and plywood industry.
