Laminated Finish – Laminates are an extremely popular finishing material for kitchen cabinets. It is a type of synthetic material that is composed of several layers that are sandwiched together. Laminates are manufactured in thin sheets but are extremely durable and resilient because of their unique material composition. Laminates have three resin reinforced layers. The top layer of laminates are made up of a protective layer of melamine resin. The second layer is known as the decorative layer since it contains the pattern, design, texture and color of the laminate. The third layer, also known as the core layer, is made up of kraft paper that is reinforced with resins. The fourth layer, also referred to as the wear layer, is mainly composed of aluminum oxides, melamine resins and paper.
