Laminate flooring is made of four separate layers with a HDF core (high-density fibre core). The layers include a resistant surface, decorative paper, HDF core, and balancer. All of these components are pressed together under high temperatures and high pressure. When the floorboards have cooled, the boards are cut, and the click profiles are created.
