Laminate flooring is constructed in layers.The top layer is the wear layer. This layer protects the design from fading, scratches and damage from every day’s wear and tear.Next is the image design layer also called decorative layer. This is where the high-resolution image of wood, stone, metal, or other material appears. Above the backing is the inner core. The core is made from high-density fiberboard that is reinforced with a special resin to further enhance moisture resistance and increase durability.
