Laminate flooring is made up of four different layers that are fused together through a lamination process. The HDF (high density fiberboard) is the core of the plank which gives laminate stability. The strength of the laminate flooring increases with a denser and more compressed core. On top of the HDF core, the image layer gives the print or pattern of the laminate flooring to simulate real timber and then overlaid with wear layer that protects the flooring from scratches, dents, and stains. The backbone of the plank is called the backing layer, making it more comfortable underfoot.
