Types of surface laminated parquet
Laminated parquet has several different surfaces: a textured surface, a regular surface, a “country surface”, a natural surface, a relief surface, a “waxed surface”, a “aged” surface, a glossy and glossy-silky surface, “wood under oil” and “country” surface.
The usual surface of all manufacturers of laminate has a silky shade, which imitates the surface, covered with a matte silky varnish. On the entire surface, you can see individual grooves, imitating “wood pores”. They are not associated with the characteristic pattern of wood.
The “natural surface” of the laminate is no different from the wood surface treated with varnish.
The whole wood pattern is perfectly visible and has a silky sheen. In addition, the simulated wood has a characteristic pattern.
The texture surface of the laminate coincides with the relief of the texture (Brasht) wood. It is rough and repeats the relief, which is formed by secreted “wood fibers” and “wood pores.” In the case when the textured surface repeats a roughly treated natural stone, the laminate is called “under the stone tile”.
The relief surface of the laminate creates the impression of a rough and uneven surface of ceramic tiles. If a wooden surface is simulated, then thin longitudinal lines that run along the entire laminate panel give it roughness.
“Country” surface creates the impression of roughly treated (as in the old days) wood. Such a rough relief does not repeat the characteristic pattern of simulated wood.
The “aged” surface of the laminate gives the impression of wood, which was damaged by bad weather and other atmospheric phenomena. Such a laminate looks like the boards were subjected to rough processing and coated with oil or varnish.
A very pleasant impression is produced by a laminate imitating a “tree under the oil”. This surface is smooth, smooth and matte. It fully corresponds to its name.
The “waxed” surface of the laminate matches the waxed wood. It has a light, warm shine.
If the laminate gives the impression of a varnished surface, then the glossy or glossy-silky surface of the laminate is in front of you. For such a laminate is characterized by a strong glossy sheen.
Modern manufacturers, possessing high-tech production, have learned to produce surfaces that combine two types of surface. Progress does not stand still!
