The Layers of Laminate

Flooring layers | Bowling Carpet
1.     Backing layer: the bottom layer offers stability and protection from moisture and other elements below
2.     High-density fiberboard: the core layer makes up the bulk of the product, offering additional water-resistance and durability
3.     Pattern layer: a photographic layer that beautifully replicates the look and feel of real wood, stone or tile
4.     Wear layer: the protective top layer, made from a clear coat that prevents moisture penetration from above
