Know more about laminate

By Robert Meccale Subscribe to RSS | May 18th 2012 | Views:

When it comes to refashioning a room, laminate evolves as the most useful material; from laminate cabinets to flooring, it offers an easy and inexpensive way to meliorate the look of your home interiors. Since many years, it has been widely used in our rooms to deliver the most sought after appeal. Let us dig out more about laminates in this article.

The use of laminate started many years ago in wood-paneled station wagons. At that time, it was colored to look like wood, and used not just on cars, but eventually in RV's, and homes in the form of false wood paneling. It was also used in flooring materials, but the major use of laminate was for insulation. Laminate was invented by a dentist in the 18th century and primarily used to cover teeth, and then for laminating photographs. Today, it is widely used in homes as decorative laminate.

There are different types of laminates but the most popular one is high pressure decorative laminate which is greatly used in home and office applications. Decorative laminate is largely used on floors, countertops, and cabinets. Laminate is manufactured by combining multiple sheets of Kraft paper soaked in raisin. These sheets are then pressed under high heat and pressure. Laminate sheets are bonded, using special adhesives. The best thing about decorative laminate is that it provides superb resistance from wear and impact.

Since decorative laminate is made of Kraft paper, it can be made in almost any color. One can choose from a wide range of laminates available in abstract, solids & wood patterns. Mostly laminates are used on countertops and furniture application, but laminate flooring is also picking up rapidly.

One good example of laminate usage is bowling alley. Wood lanes can be easily warped due to the weight of bowling balls; plastic laminate lanes allow for an easier bowl. A large number of laminate manufacturers are available in the market and one can easily choose from a wide range of laminates. The only thing to remember is to buy high quality decorative laminate from a leading manufacturer, as a wrong choice may result into damaged flooring or countertops. Don’t forget to ask your sales person about the moisture-resistant ability of the laminate you’re buying. You can choose to gather more information about decorative laminate and other laminate types on internet.
