Mannington Laminate Flooring uses Mannington's
making hardwood floors to create laminates in
the wood styles and tones people prefer most.
They even went a step further by pioneering a
proprietary process of printing, texturing and
finishing that captures original source materials
like natural stone and wood with exceptional
crispness and depth of color, found in
their Revolutions Tile
and Plank collections.
Typical high-pressure laminate floors use glue
to hold the plastic laminate to the core - glue
that can sometimes come unstuck. But Mannington's
allows Mannington Laminate Flooring to replace
this glue with thermal-set plastic resins that
are forced through three surface layers and deep
into the fibers of the laminate's EcoCore.
This means no peeling! Mannington Laminate Flooring's
EcoCore, made from recycled wood materials, is
a super-strong, high-density fiberboard that
withstands denting-even from the heaviest piano.
Wear and stain resistance.
Mannington Laminate Flooring uses a melamine
surface which gets its incredible durability
from aluminum oxide. Second only to diamonds
in hardness, aluminum oxide provides unsurpassed
wear and stain resistance. Many of Mannington
Laminate Flooring's patterns also feature a built-in
finish that improves your floor's resistance
to every-day wear-n-tear and helps make clean-up
No floor comes closer to true maintenance-free
performance. Ordinary vacuuming or sweeping is
usually all it takes, with occasional wiping
with Mannington Award Series
Cleaner. Spills happen, but laminate floors take
them in stride. Juice, wine, grease, and chocolate
are easily wiped away. Cigarette burns, asphalt,
shoe polish, paint, ink, crayon, and nail polish
come clean with alcohol or nail polish remover.
Candle wax and chewing gum can be gently scraped
Mannington Laminate Flooring is designed to be
laid as a "floating floor" above your existing
floor (except carpeting) without nails
or glue. The only glue ever used is between the
planks in the joints, which fit tightly together
with a precise tongue and groove design. Mannington
Hush, AquaBarrier and ComfortBarrier
underlayments are very easy to install and keep
out moisture rising from the subfloor, provide
padding for walking comfort, add heat insulation,
and dampen noise.
