Laminate Floors

What is laminate floors?

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 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.  

Laminate flooring is produced in board form. The production process involves the individual layers in the laminate floor being pressed together under high pressure and at high temperature.  

Besides the classically produced laminate flooring with an overlay of melamine resin there is also directly printed laminate flooring, with which the core layer is directly printed with the decor and lacquered finally.
