Technical Information

Description

Basic Use-Nevamar laminated flooring products are manufactured specifically for floor surfacing on access flooring systems. They comply with requirements for low static generation and retention, coupled with a washable surface requiring no waxing.

 

Limitations - Nevamar laminated flooring products are not designed for application on any sub-floor strata other than access floor manufacturer's steel, aluminum, wood, or particle board floor components. They are not recommended for exterior use.

 

Composition and Materials - Nevamar laminated flooring products are manufactured using a specially formulated surface sheet over a melamine impregnated print pattern sheet. The core layers of phenolic impregnated kraft papers have been designed to control dimensional stability. The laminate composition is pressed under closely controlled pressures and temperatures. The back of the laminate composition is sanded to maintain uniform thickness and to facilitate bonding.

 

Grades - Nevamar LFT is available in a variety of grades to suit most needs.

Proper grade of product needed is dependent on the total flooring system requirements. When specifying an access floor, we recommend that the floor manufacturer be contacted for proper specification.

Maintenance -

Note: Never flood the floor with water or cleaning agents! Nevamar laminated flooring products are easily cleaned in low traffic areas by damp mopping with water and a mild, multi-purpose non-ammoniated floor cleaner, like RISE systems, mixed with water according to the manufacturer's directions. Do not seal, wax, or mechanically buff the floor.
