Laminates can look like real wood, tile or stone. They are constructed with a wear layer, then a decorative sheet (printed image), both bonded to a rigid core, usually fiberboard or wood, with a bottom balancing layer to prevent warping.Laminate flooring is a product widely used on kitchen countertops. Specifically constructed with a unique tongue-and-groove system to ensure an easy and accurate installation. They are a easy to clean. You'll never need to polish, wax or treat a laminate floor. Not even the worst spill will leave a stain on the floor's surface. Laminate floors are absolutely worry-free! Laminate flooring offers a wide selection of designs that offer the look and feel of beautiful hardwood, ceramic tile and slate. It is actually a composite that's designed to endure more-than-average wear and tear. A Direct-Pressure manufacturing process fuses four layers into one extremely hard surface.


The four layers are:

Back layer - the back is reinforced with melamine for structural stability and moisture resistance.


Fiberboard core - Shaw Laminate's ultra dense core board provides impact resistance and stability. It also
Features an edge sealing treatment that provides even further structural stability.

Decorative layer - Providing the floor's beauty, the decorative layer is actually a highly detailed photograph that gives the laminate the appearance of wood or tile.


Wear layer - The melamine wear layer is a tough, clear finish reinforced with aluminum oxide, one of the hardest mineral compounds known to man, to resist staining, fading, surface moisture, and wear.

The resulting floor is a technological breakthrough. There’s no staining, no fading, and no wear through.
