So, what exactly do AC ratings tell us? They represent a laminate’s resistance to abrasion, impact, stains and cigarette burns. AC ratings also indicate that the product has been tested for the effects of furniture legs, castors, and swelling along its edges. When a laminate flooring product has a rating, then it has passed all of the test criteria. Failing just one test will disqualify a product.

Above this is a heat fused laminate layer which the material takes its name from. This wear layer is clear so the decorative surface can be seen, ​but it is also impervious to penetration by dirt or liquids, protecting the core of the laminate.
