Armstrong Laminate’s Durable Construction
- Laminate flooring has four layers: a wear layer, a design layer, an inner core layer and a backing layer.
- Wear layer – the clear top layer that protects the floor from stains and fading.
- Design layer – a photographic image of wood, stone, brick or ceramic that creates the illusion of real wood or stone.
- Inner core – high density fiberboard to provide impact resistance.
- Backing – to reinforce & provide structural stability.
This layered construction makes laminate floors remarkably durable.
How Armstrong Laminate Offers A Realistic Look
EMBOSSING IN REGISTER (EIR)
Embossing in register is a manufacturing technique used to create a grain consistent with the photographic image on the laminate board.
Benefits of EIR
- Increases depth, texture and the natural look of the floor
- Emphasizes the design; especially when light is reflected off the surface
- Allows for micro-grout lines and precise detailing
