Laminate Flooring Construction
Laminate flooring has four layers: a wear layer, a design layer, an inner core layer
and a backing layer. The wear layer protects the floor from stains and fading.
Beneath that, the design layer is literally a photographic image of wood, stone
or other natural visual. For structural strength, the inner core layer's
plastic resin keeps the laminate stable and flat. The backing creates a
moisture barrier that protects the floor from warping. It's this layered
construction that makes laminate floors so remarkably durable.
