Based on the totality sion of all these characteristics, the laminate can be ootnesti to one group or another. The most important for the consumer are the durability of the surface layer resistance. Iznosoustochivost coverage is defined by Taber test (Tabertest), and expressed in terms of speed, which should make a grinding wheel with abrasive paper before the first signs damage to the coating. This figure is called the IP (Initial Phase). Depending on the number of revolutions, which he attributed to withstand the coating durability class: AC1; AC 2; AC 3; AC or AC-4 5. Abrasion coefficient 900 1800 2500 2500 4000 6500 Many Elite laminate flooring types by their characteristics are significantly higher than 33 classes.
