This is a layered flooring made up of wood byproducts. It is an amazing simulation of wood, tile, or stone and is available in a wide assortment of color, patterns, designs, and texture features. The most typical, and strongest, the core is HDF (high-density fiberboard), but it's also available in MDF (medium density fiberboard) or plywood. You can
also get a more advanced, rigid one like SPC (stone plastic composite) that makes it feel firmer and more stable.
The top layer is what gives durability. It is a clear aluminum-oxide coated sheet that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs. Spills sit at the top just waiting to be wiped off. Laminate has an AC (Abrasion Class) Rating. The AC rating is a numerical system ranging from one to six; anything up to three classifies durability for residential use. Three and over classified for commercial flooring.
