Are you up to speed on thermo composite direct pressure laminate? Laminate flooring is an overwhelming favorite in the flooring industry because it is an affordable way to get high end looks like hard wood and stone. However, within the world of laminate flooring, there are several different types that consumers must be aware of. Thermo composite direct pressure laminate is just one option that flooring installers can recommend to their clients.
Thermo composite direct pressure laminate, or DPL, is among the most popular choice for clients. It is made by putting together four separate layers that create the piece of flooring. The four layers are the bottom layer or balancing layer, the high density fiberboard, the decorative sheet and the clear wear layer. These layers are then subjected to intense pressure, about 300 to 500 pounds per square inch. The layers are fused together all at once to create a durable and long-lasting piece.
Other options for laminate have a different creation process, and may fuse layers separately at first and then together. Other laminate may require more pounds per square inch. The longer the process, the more expensive the laminate is. That’s why DPL is a popular and affordable choice for home owners and business owners alike.
