What is Laminate Flooring Made From?
  • 1. Overlay (Wear Layer) The top wear layer is provided by the melamine resin, a highly wear resistant material that makes laminate flooring so hard wearing. This top layer is very similar to the top layer on the counter or kitchen worktops but is usually around 40% stronger. This makes the laminate flooring highly resistant to scratches, burns, dent's, stains, etc.


    2. DPL (Decorative Paper) or HPL (Decorative Paper + Add High Strength Paper) It is the decorative paper which gives the laminate flooring its individual appearance, ranging from highly authentic wood reproduction, ceramic or stone designs. An important thing to look out for when purchasing laminate flooring is to understand the difference between DPL and HPL. We will talk about this latter


    3. Core layer This is made up of either high-density fibreboard (H.D.F.). or medium density fibreboard (M.D.F.) This is saturated in resins to make it extremely hard. Most manufacturers also add a moisture-resistant resin to the core. This is important as it helps keep the flooring protected against moisture penetrating the boards.


    4. Stabilizing layer The bottom layer is the stabilizing layer; this is what gives the laminate floor its stability. It is made up of moisture-resistant resins
