A printed decor image with impressive color resolution applied to a high-density fiberboard (HDF) and covered by a robust surface layer (known as the overlay) to protect against sharp heels and furniture casters – this is and remains the recipe for the success of laminate flooring. Amongst the manufacturer’s best-kept secrets are the recipes for impregnating resin. These ensure that this protective layer looks great even after the harshest physical performance tests.
Work on the further development of the product has continued intensively since 1977, which is the year that laminate flooring technology was invented. This is why even an expert today would have a difficult time telling the difference between EGGER laminate flooring with its perfectly fitting surface and a wood floor just by looking or running a hand over it.
