What is laminate?
Laminate is a flooring option from Armstrong that combines highly realistic hardwood and stone textures and looks with increased durability and function. Laminate is a fantastic and more cost-effective alternative to hardwood or stone materials. It can be placed in nearly every area, just take caution when installing in full baths or below-grade (ground) where excess moisture builds. Its unique construction reinforces its resistance to dings and scratches.
Laminate flooring is made in layers. The bottom layer is called the backing layer. It is made to resist moisture to prevent board warping for a solid foundation.
The next layer up is the inner core layer. It is the stability layer of the floor made from high density fiberboard that is reinforced with a special resin to further enhance water resistance and increase durability.
The layer after the inner core is the image design layer, or where the high-resolution picture is placed to resemble the actual wood or stone. This is also where the floors unique texture is applied to enhance its realistic appeal.
The final, top layer is the wear layer. This protects the design layer from fading, scratches, and damage from every day wear and tear.
