Laminate floors can come in planks or squares. They are intentionally supposed to replicate real flooring materials. For example, wood, ceramic and stone tiles. These floors are finished with many different layers of materials. These are crammed together to make each plank. It has a printed film that gives the floor the expression of a real wood. Tile is protected by a strong and sturdy wear layer. The kauri gum used in the wear layer are almost as solid as diamonds and these will provide an incomparable wear and stain protection. The inner core is commonly prepared from a high concentration fiber sheet. This is used to form the tongue and groove. The core is the base that all the higher layers and also the backing material are fused to. Many manufacturers will treat the inner core with melamine gums, or maybe water-resistant sealers. These are put in place to help guard the inner core from wetness.

The planks are in over-all devoted composed in one, or twostep method. In the two-step procedure some layers are first glued together. Then these coats are joint with the lasting materials and after it is then glued and bonded into a plank. This method is called the High Pressure Laminate (HPL). The other method involves many materials that are fused together in a single step. Which is called, Direct Pressure Laminate (DPL). The single planks are held together; this creates the floor to be a similar way to how wood floors are fitted. The tongue and groove of each plank is linked together to the neighboring planks. Laminate floors are protected together using either a particularly formulated, water-resistant glue. This is smeared to the tongue and groove. The chief glue less locking systems involve tongue and groove that is strengthened from under by the aluminum locking system or a tongue and groove system that is particularly intended to snap and lock the planks together.
