Laminate flooring is a layered floor built around a watertight, glued High Density Fibre (HDF) board.
Laminate floors consist of four different layers:
A transparent, wear-resistant overlay providing protection against stains, impact, scratches, burns and household chemicals.
A design layer: a high-resolution photo of real wood or tiles that is reproduced with sophisticated printing techniques and finished with melamine resin.
An extremely durable and stable moisture-resistant, glued HDF core board.
A balancing layer, which guarantees a perfectly balanced board that will not cup or bow when properly installed and maintained.
