Laminate flooring is made up of layers sandwiched together to create a solid, hard wearing, stable board. The very bottom layer is a tough moisture resistant material, which gives the board strength and stability.
The main bulk of the board is HDF (High Density Fibreboard) this layer is machined to create the fitting system that allows the flooring to be clicked together. Click laminate and loc laminate are more frequently used for modern floorings rather than tongue and groove due to ease of fitting.
The next layer is the decorative layer, known as the photo. The Photo is a high-resolution image of natural wood flooring to give the flooring a realistic appearance.
The final layer is the wear layer. This is highly scratch and dent resistant, normally made with aluminium oxide. Aluminium oxide has a rating of 9 on the mohs hardness scale, so provides the finished product with a surface that can withstand the rigours of day to day wear.
