What is Laminate?

Heat and pressure turn layers of paper and plastic resins into a tough-as-nails sheet.

Melamine resin: transparent, protective top layer

Decorative layer: a printed paper or foil that gives laminate its good looks

Kraft paper: a stiff, resin-saturated backing that sticks well to adhesives. Some types of laminate have no backing.
