Laminated Flooring is normally composed with four layers which are wearing layer, decorating layer, high-density base layer and balancing (damp-proof) layer. It is performing well on anti-contamination and is easy to clean. It is stable and rigid enough to avoid deforming or cracking. With such properties it has high performance-price ratio. Laminated flooring is suitable for meeting room, office, high-cleanness lab, as well as middle and high end hotels, restaurant and residential house.
Laminate is a manufactured product that simulates the look of hardwood, ceramic tile, natural stone and many other types of flooring. Now, in the past, laminate floors have been easy to spot, but today's technology allows manufacturers to create realistic visuals and textures for an elegant and quality floor.
In fact, many of today's laminate styles consist of extremely authentic wood or natural stone visuals to accommodate any room in your home. Laminate is well suited to those shoppers who want the look and feel of real hardwood or stone but without the cost or maintenance that can be associated with natural products. It's a fact. Laminate flooring costs significantly less than hardwood floors or natural stone tile.
So, laminate seems to be popular among buyers who are looking for a beautiful, durable, yet cost-effective flooring solution for their home. And laminate floors function well in any space with their many different styles and colors.
You can choose from natural colors and dark wood grains as well as warm or cool color tones to compliment any room décor in your home. And if the "plank" look interests you, many hardwood plank designs are offered in laminate, including rare, exotic wood species.
Laminate stone and tile patterns will give you the elegant look of tile, but without the concerns of grout cleaning or cracking tile. Something you might want to consider. And if yours is a busy household or a home with children, a durable, low maintenance product like laminate flooring is a great choice for your active lifestyle. Because laminate flooring is stain resistant, it doesn’t need to be varnished or waxed. A good thing to know.
Laminate floors are also less likely to fade in direct sunlight, unlike aging hardwood floors. And don’t worry if you feel a little unfamiliar with this product. Laminate floors are relatively new to this country, but have been used in Europe for more than 25 years.
Why Europe you ask? Since laminate flooring can be installed over many types of existing floors it has made it a natural for old European buildings.But more and more Americans are becoming familiar with laminate flooring because they have been aware of laminate countertops for years.
By using the countertop technology and adding considerably more resin to the wear layer, some laminate floor manufacturers boast that their laminate floors are now 10 to 20 times harder than laminate countertops.
Since this resin-filled wear layer is so dense, it becomes extremely difficult to stain or scratch.
And here's something you might find interesting. Laminate floors are never secured directly to the subfloor, instead they are floated over the subfloor.
This allows laminate flooring to be used over a wide variety of subfloors, including wooden subfloors, existing floors and even concrete slabs.
Which may explain why, today, laminate flooring has become one of the best selling floor coverings in the United States.
Knowing how laminate is constructed provides you with knowledge of laminate right from its beginning. That's important information because these are the materials you'll be living with and walking on for years to come should you choose this flooring product.
Today's laminate floors are available in a multitude of designs, patterns, and textures, yet they all consist of four main components that are bonded together.
The bottom layer, or backing, is a melamine plastic layer that lends dimensional stability to the planks and also helps guard against moisture from the sub-floor. (Moisture infiltrating any flooring is the enemy.)
The next layer is a core board, generally made from high-density fiberboard or particle board which may also contain melamine plastic resins that help improve the moisture resistance of the core.
Then a decorative layer or print film is adhered on top of the core board giving the floor its hardwood or tile look.
This decorative layer is a printed high-resolution photo-reproduction of wood grain, natural stone or ceramic tile pattern. (Now you know how the look-a-like is born.)
And the frosting? On the top of our "cake" is a durable wear layer, providing protection and stain resistance.
Now many wear layers also contain aluminum oxide, as well as melamine resin, and that creates exceptional durability. The kind that will stand up to the most active household – even yours.
All four layers of our "cake" are then combined in a high-pressure process.
