  How Laminate Flooring is made:
 

Laminate Flooring is made of a four layers which are bonded together.

Here is what Laminate Floors are made of:

The first layer is the wear layer.  The Laminate Floor wear layer always is hard and durable.  This layer also is static resistance.  The top layer of the wear layer contains Aluminum Oxide and Melamine Resin.

 
 

The Second layer of Laminate floor is Decorative layer: A decorative sheet area of Laminating fuses the wear layer and the decorative sheet on to the core material.  The decorative area is a high resolution photo of wood floors, tile, or natural stone.

Laminates 3rd layer:  Is an area which is made of High Density Fiber Board.  Some core areas may be made of Melamine products which help for moisture resistance.

The fourth layer of Laminate flooring is called backing layer.  The backing area is made of Melamine plastic which holds the Laminate plank.  It also plays a roll against moisture.  Some of the Laminates have attached underlayment to the backing layer.

All four layers of laminate are then combined by using Direct Pressure Laminate Process or High Pressure Laminate Processing.

The assembly of layers of Laminate floor is started when all laminate layers are stacked on top of each other.  Then the pressuring process will start.  The stacked area will pressure the laminate between 300 to 500 pounds per square inch at approximately 400 degrees heat.  After the cooling process, the boards are cut into planks floor or tile floor and the other process such as profiling and tongue and grooving the edges will start.

 
DIREST PRESSURE LAMINATE FLOORING

Direct Pressure Laminating fuses the wear layer and decorative layer into the core material using pressure between 300 to 500 PSI.
 
HIGH PRESSURE LAMINATE FLOORING

High Pressure Laminate flooring is manufactured at 1400 pound per square inch pressure.  The Laminated area and high pressure backing are then bonded with high pressure to a water resistant HFD core.
