A laminate flooring is a man made product which is very hard wearing. It is made using fibres which are compressed to create HDF High-Density Fibreboard. The next stage is to apply the design whether this is the wood effect or tile effect, this is done by adhering the decor to the HDF core using adhesive. Afer this has been done a number of coats of lacquer are applied to give this its hardened surface. This product is more hard wearing than real wood flooring because it is man made and can be made more or less heavy duty.
