Despite an ongoing shift in production of many laminated engineered wood products toward China, India, and other developing areas, demand for laminates
in Western Europe is still significant, as the region maintains large RTA furniture and laminate
manufactured with the Cellular/Stratified (C&S) system also satisfy the design requirements for a reduction weight up to 1/2 - 1/3 with respect to traditional bulk laminates
with equal flexural-torsional stiffness and the possibility to use processing techniques already involved for conventional laminates
(cutting, bending, deep drawing).
(published 02/2012,291 pages) is available for $4900 from The Freedonia Group, Inc.
As you know, the majority of the laminates
sold in the past have been wood patterns, and these are still an important base of demand for laminates
," said Baumgartner.
The types, general characteristics, and pressing conditions of the papers and resins used in production influence the physical and mechanical properties of the laminates
are C[pounds sterling]texturedC[yen] to create a more realistic look and feel.
He pointed out that growth of laminate
flooring was attributed in large measure to features such as superior performance of the product including its sturdiness, fade and stain resistance, low maintenance, as well as lower price and wide-ranging styles.
The study also anticipates double-digit gains in the flooring market to result from the continued penetration of laminate
flooring, especially in residential remodeling.
Below the protectant, laminates
have a highly compressed paper liner with a photographic image of wood.

vendor put recently on the block: As PCD&M reported in April, Isola AG is also for sale.
That is, just as the windshield in your car is a laminate
, laminated windows are being used in these buildings.
Sophisticated 3D mold-filling simulations have shown these outer laminates
to be as much as 100[degrees] C hotter than the laminates
in the center of the runner channel.
