Under the loading capacity means the wear resistance of the laminate in various operating conditions. In mid-to late nineties, when the laminate only began to be delivered to Russia indicated the number of revolutions – 8000, 12000, 15000, etc. This was the so-called Tabertest – took obrazivny circle and ground off the top protective layer laminate respectively, on how many revolutions it is destroyed, such an indicator and is assigned. But resistance to abrasion that is not all. It was necessary to take into account the impact resistance plates, impact resistance and resistance to gap, moisture and uninflammable and more than ten indicators that Tabertest not covered.
Gradually, all laminate manufacturers have shifted to a class load. Classification is approximately as follows: 21, 22 and 23 classes are suitable for use at home, 31.32 and 33 classes of loads are designed for use in both home and in the commercial sector. Accordingly, the more the latter figure, the stronger the material. Currently, laminate is no grade below 31 and notation on the package 23/31 or 23/33 involve the use of private sector default. 3. whether laying parquet floor heating? Yes, no problem.
hdf board, which is the base material is not suffers from even a fairly tangible and long-term warming, and unlike wood will not crack and warp as the parquet floor and did not come into disrepair. 4. thickness of the laminate is preferred – 8 or 12 mm? Single standard for the size and thickness does not exist, a laminate is produced with a thickness of 6 to 14 mm, depending on the manufacturer.
