Aluminum Oxide Finish Is The Only Way To Go on Laminate
The beauty of laminate flooring is more than just skin deep. Laminate is made from wood products and plastics that are compressed and bonded under high pressure to form an incredibly hard plank with an aluminum-oxide finish laminate floors are almost as hard as diamonds. Laminate flooring is produced by taking a photograph and attaching it to a high density fiberboard using heat and pressure. Higher quality laminate flooring uses high definition imaging to create unbelievably realistic looking laminate flooring. The photograph is then covered with a layer of polyurethane, which protects the floor from fading, scratching and wear. Higher quality laminates use a form of urethane infused with aluminum oxide, the second hardest substance known to man, which substantially increases the resistance to scratching. Better laminate floors are “textured” to create a more realistic look and feel. The texture is added to the wear layer through a process called “embossing”, which involves pressing patterns into the surface. The best quality laminates use a process called “embossing in register”, where the textured pattern actually follows the grain in the image, creating an even more realistic look and feel.
We suggest a laminate floors with an aluminum oxide finish. It is 30 times stronger than standard engineered finishes used for most laminate products. So don’t worry about how heavy the furniture is or whether or not the dog will scratch up the floor, it will take decades to wear the finish off this baby.
