How Laminate Flooring Is Made
Laminate flooring is made from a number of layers that are fused together, under high pressure at high temperature. The layers in laminate flooring include:
- Wear Layer - This is the top layer, the one you walk on. It's usually made from cellulose paper that's been saturated with melamine resins that include carborundum to make laminate flooring so incredibly scratch-resistant.
- Design Layer - This is the image you see, typically a photograph or patterned print that has been copied onto cellulose paper. Because it is below the upper melamine layer, it cannot be marked, scuffed or even fade. The latest trend in manufacturing to print directly onto the core board.
- Core Layer - This is the backbone of all laminate flooring. The core layer is usually some form of processed particleboard and comes in different strengths and thicknesses.
- Stabilising Layer - This is the bottom layer that balances the other layers. It's usually made from resin-saturated paper, just like the top layer.
