Laminate Flooring Melbourne—What is It?
Laminate flooring features multi-layers of synthetic and watertight high-density fibreboard (HDF) material for superior design, performance and functionality. At Mr Floor, all laminates consist of four layers with a distinct purpose and are ingeniously fused together using intense pressure and high heat.
1. Top Layer—Wear Resistant and Transparent
Made using aluminium oxide, the top layer is a clear and transparent layer protecting your flooring against wear and tear. It is resistant to stains, scratches, burns, impact, and household chemicals. This layer features multiple melamine layers pressed together on the HDF core board while the surface is finished with a title texture or wood structure to give it a high-end visual appearance.
2. Design Layer—For the Perfect Design
This layer gives the laminate flooring its authentic feel and look. It is a high-resolution photo of natural wood reproduced with advanced and sophisticated printing techniques and melamine resin finish. The design layer makes the tile and wood imitation look natural and genuine.
3. Core Layer—Protects from Moisture and Indentation
The layer is constructed with refined wood fibres and melamine resin. It is a re-composed wood-fibre board that uses all parts of the tree. The composition is homogenous, and the board is deployed with several technical specs. The core layer’s function is to protect the laminate flooring from moisture and indentations.
4. Back Layer —For Balance and Performance
Also known as the balancing layer, it guarantees a well-balanced board, all much needed to ensure that it will not bow or cup after installation. Plus, it also protects the plan against moisture.
