The Laminate Floor Board is Made up of Several Layers
First there is the upper wear layer and a decor layer with one or several layers, depending on the production method used. The wear layer consists of a special cellulose (paper) treated with synthetic resin as the durable surface of the flooring. The decor layer gives the laminate flooring its attractive appearance.
Underneath the decor is the substrate made of wood-based materials which is high-density fiberboard (HDF).
On the base of the laminate flooring you will find an impregnated layer on the back of the substrate for increasing dimensional stability and which acts as a moisture barrier.
All three layers are permanently bonded with each other by resin, heat and pressure. DPL stands for “Direct Pressure Laminate”, directly laminated laminate floorings.
