Q: What is quick-step laminate flooring?
A: A laminate floor is a multi-layered man-made floor product built through a lamination process. The Quick-Step laminate floors are all built with four layers:
The four layers:
1. The top layer- transparent, wear-proof overlay
The top layer is used to protect quick-step floors from wear and tear, scratches and daily stains.
2. The design layer - look & feel
Put it simply, the design layer is the look and feel that we see everyday. It replicates the look of real wood by using HD printing technologies. That’s why the quick-step laminate floor just look as authenticate as real wood floor. Often customers can not tell the difference between quick-step laminate and real wood these days.
3. The moist resistant HDF core board
The HDF core board is right situated in the middle of a quick-step laminate floor. HDF stands for “high density fibre board” because it is made of wood fibres and high density melamine resin. At the same time, it is highly mist resistant.
4. The bottom layer - balancing layer
This bottom layer is used to keep a perfect balance of the board, so it does not move or bend easily.
