What Is Laminate Flooring?
Laminate flooring is a synthetic floor covering system where multiple layers are fused together in a high heat and direct pressure lamination process. Usually consisting of four composite layers, which when combined, delivers a flooring which is strong, easy to install, and gives the appearance of wood, stone or many other designs and colour schemes.
How Are Laminate Floors Made?
A typical cross section of a laminate floor plank will show:
1. The top sheet which we walk directly upon is known as the wear or overlay layer. Acting as a transparent shield, it provides protection against everyday minor wear caused by pets, shoes, furniture and vacuum cleaners. It also provides a satisfying sheen to the surface.
2. The image or decorative layer beneath this is what gives a laminate floor its aesthetics. A printed layer of photographic quality which accurately represents a wide range of wood, stone or marble flooring. Today’s technology enables a multitude of colours, patterns and images to be incorporated into the laminate flooring.
3. The core layer is where the section of flooring gets its strength. Typically high density fibre board (HDF), the wood fibres are combined with resin and fused under pressure to make a very strong board.
4. Beneath this another backing layer which seals the underside of the high density fibre board.
All these layers are fused together in a press at high heat and with intense pressure processing. DPL is the most typical fusing method used to manufacture residential laminate flooring.
