Laminate offers beautiful looks that emulate the elegance of porcelain tile and the warmth of hardwood, but with the easy maintenance and super durability of a laminate. Laminate floors are resistant to both staining and fading, which is a great feature for active families and families with pets.
New Laminate flooring is a mostly synthetic flooring variety that is made up of several layers fused together using a laminate process.
There are two main types of laminate flooring; High Pressure Laminate (HPL) and Direct Pressure Laminate (DPL)
HPL laminate is a five layer laminate created when the top and bottom layers are treated separately, and then fused together to make a strong core. This core provides extra durability and stability. DPL is comprised of four layers and is not quite as strong, but still perfectly suitable for most residential applications.

Regardless of the type, the bottom layer acts as the backing, allowing it to resist moisture and prevent warping. The next layers make up the inner core that is composed of high or medium density fiberboard. The layer on top of that is known as the image layer, which created to look like natural materials using high-definition technology and printing.

The final layer on top is the wear layer, a transparent aluminum oxide material that protects the image layer from scratches, burns, impact, and other wear over time.

The most important classification for Laminate Flooring is the AC rating.
AC stands for Abrasion Class, a third party entity that has set specific ratings for Laminate Flooring durability. The ratings span from AC1 to AC5.
  • AC1 – This rating is suitable for residential areas that get the least amount of traffic and wear. Bedrooms, closets, and dens are good choices for AC1.
  • AC2 – Slightly more durable than AC1, this flooring can be used all throughout the home, and is especially useful for living rooms, hallways, and dining rooms.
  • AC3 – Strong enough for light hotel and office use, but light enough for residential use. AC3 is a good middle ground laminate choice if you are unsure about the exact amount of wear anticipated, but know you need more than just the minimal amount of durability.
  • AC4 – Often found in cafes, larger offices, and smaller stores, AC4 offer s high level of durability while maintaining a comfortable feel.
  • AC5 – Reserved for the heaviest traffic areas, AC5 is utilized I some of the most high-traffic areas in the world, such as shopping malls, office high-rises, and arenas.
