Construction of a laminate floor
Overlays are light, transparent paper webs that are wetted with liquid melamine resin in an impregnation bath. As a carrier material, the paper absorbs the resins.
- Decor layer
Decor papers are printed papers with wood or stone structure imitations. The printed papers are soaked in melamine resin and pressed on the top side of the carrier plate under heat and pressure together with the overlay.
- Antistatic paper
All antistatic floorings have an innovative layer directly below the surface that offers comprehensive protection against unpleasant discharging. Guarantees a permanent antistatic effect - far below the permissible person's voltage for antistatic flooring (DIN EN 1815; DIN IEC 1340-4-1), graded as ASF2 class 2.
- HDF carrier material
This is a wood material board made from wood fibre. It has a very homogeneous structure and closed surfaces as well as a high density and, thus, also an improved bending and transverse tensile strength.
The counteracting papers consist of resin-impregnated papers and are attached to the bottom side of the laminate panels in order to achieve a stress equalisation to the overlay and the decor paper on the top side.
- Footfall and impact sound insulation
Our unique Silentos Pro system is a 2.0mm thick PO foam that reduces the footfall sounds in the room by 50% and the impact sounds by 30%. Floorings featuring the Silentos Pro system are resistant to all kinds of stress with ease and are ideally suitable for installation on hot water floor heating.
