What is a laminate floor?

Laminate flooring consists of several layers of materials fused together through a lamination process. The inner core is usually made from a fibreboard with very high density called HDF (High Density Fibreboard). The decor consists of a printed paper that imitates the appearance of wood, stone or other materials. But even plainly coloured or patterned laminate floors are common. The top surface is reinforced with a wear layer of aluminium oxide, which is one of nature's hardest materials.

Pergo original laminate flooring is constructed in such a way as to provide high resistance against scratches, pressure, impact, dirt, sunlight and heat. In addition to the HDF core and the wear layer of aluminium oxide, our flooring is made with a variety of patented layers that help to create the world's most durable laminate flooring.
