What Is Laminate Flooring ?
Laminate flooring is a popular choice in the consumer market, and comes in a wide range of finishes from wood to natural so you can craft the look and feel of your room. This product is great for entry ways, hallways, and living rooms.
How it is Made ?
Classically produced laminate flooring is made up of three layers: Melamine resin overlay + decor layer, core layer and backing layer.
The decorative paper is what gives the laminate flooring its individual appearance. The wear layer is provided by the melamine resin, a highly wear resistant material that makes laminate flooring so hard wearing.
The core of the laminate floor is provided by the core layer. The core layer is made of compressed wood fibres, which is differentiated by HDF (High Density Fibreboard) or MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) depending upon its density degrees.
The stabilizing layer, a compact elastic paper, makes up the bottom layer of laminate flooring and is what gives the floor its stability.
A laminate floor is much more than just an imitation of a natural surface. Modern laminates often look so authentic that you can hardly tell the difference between a laminate and a real wooden floor. And best of all, you decide how authentic a look you want.
