Although most consumers prefer pure wood flooring, household laminate flooring is also popular when decorating apartments and houses. It is not as delicate as pure wood flooring, high quality and low price.
In fact, as long as you pay attention to the following 3 aspects, you can easily buy high-quality household laminate flooring.
Surface wear resistance revolution — Abrasion class
The wear-resisting class of household laminate flooring is determined by the surface wear layer, and expressed by wear-resisting rotate number. Generally, it is around 6,000 turns for household use while around 10,000 turns for public use. There are four main types of surface wear layer of laminate flooring on the market today: a floor with an aluminum oxide content of 30gram per square meter has a wear-resistant degree about 4000 turns; a wear-resistant degree of 38g is about 5000 turns; a wear-resistant degree of 45g is about 9000 turns; the abrasion resistance of 62g is about 18000 turns.
Free formaldehyde content
Household laminate flooring contains a certain amount of formaldehyde in the adhesive used. Excessive formaldehyde is harmful to the human body. If the human body is exposed to the high concentration of formaldehyde environment for a long-term, there will be a cancer risk. According to the national regulations, the formaldehyde content of laminate flooring should not exceed 0.12 mg/m3.
The higher the density, the better the mechanical properties of the flooring product, and the better the impact resistance. However, under the same conditions, the higher the density, the higher the cost of the floor product.
