A Closer Look At Laminate Layers:
A melamine backing layer that provides a moisture barrier and structural integrity and stability.
A dense, strong inner layer—sometimes called core-board—made of compressed wood fiber.
A melamine decorative layer that provides the floor's beauty and realism through highly detailed photography—giving laminate the appearance of natural hardwood, ceramic tile, or stone.
A melamine wear layer that offers a tough, beautiful finish resistant to stain, fade, and wear. (In some products, it is reinforced with aluminum oxide, an extremely hard mineral compound, to increase resistance to staining, fading, surface moisture, and wear.)
