The groove layer and the wearing coat have a shiny surface and the decorative layer has a stone or stone floor design which is required in order to produce laminate flooring with improved maintenance properties and a desired design.

Description

laminate flooring

The invention relates to a flooring laminate with a lower-side support plate having on at least one pair of opposite edges corresponding embodiments for the tongue / groove connection, and with a top-side use and wear layer on the under side a between the carrier plate and the use and wear layer provided adjacent decorative layer.

Such known from practice floor laminates are rectangular and have a printed decorative layer. As for protecting the floor laminate especially the decorative layer serving use and wear layer of melamine resin is used. The use and wear layer is at least partially transparent to allow the decorative layer located thereunder is visible.

A disadvantage is that such a melamine resin (s) having only a low degree of gloss existing use and wear layer, since they can be applied only by a rolling process, and therefore has an uneven surface.

In this respect such floor laminates are more expensive to care because dirt particles, especially small diameter, deposited on the surface thereof and can be difficult to remove.

The object of the invention is to avoid the abovementioned disadvantages and to provide a laminate floor of the type mentioned, which has improved conditioning properties at a desired appearance.

This object is achieved by a flooring laminate with a lower-side support plate having on at least one pair of opposite edges corresponding embodiments for the tongue / groove connection, and with a top-side use and wear layer on the under side a between the carrier plate and of the useful and wear layer provided adjacent decorative layer, the use and wear layer has a glossy surface and the decorative layer comprising a stone or stone floor decor. A stone decor, for example, represent a simulation of a marble floor. In a stone floor decor may be the picture of a tile floor.

The object can also be a laminate flooring with a lower-side support plate having on at least one pair of opposite edges corresponding embodiments for the tongue / groove connection, and with a top-side use and wear layer on the under side a between the carrier plate and of the useful and wear layer provided adjacent decorative layer, the use and wear layer has a glossy surface and the decorative layer comprises a decorative design can be solved. In a fantasy decor colored squares or other geometric shapes can be provided for loosening of the surface, for example. Other patterns like. As wavy lines or a checkerboard pattern, are of course possible.

Furthermore, the object can be obtained by a flooring laminate with a lower-side supporting plate, which has on at least one pair of opposite edges corresponding embodiments for the tongue / groove connection, and with a top-side use and wear layer on the under side a between the carrier plate and of the useful and wear layer provided adjacent decorative layer, the use and wear layer having a highly glossy surface, and the decorative layer is provided with a pattern of a real existing not at floor design, are dissolved. In such a decor can be, for example, the mapping of sand, water or other in soil not really existing design.

Under a highly lustrous surface, such a surface is understood to mean having a degree of gloss (Glanzver- Mogen) of about 80% at an incident angle of 20 ° relative to one having on the surface of the Fußbodenla mats precipitated solder, ie, 80% of the Fußbodenlami- nat directed light beam is reflected. A method for determining the degree of gloss is described in DIN 67 530th In the measurement, a light beam is directed at an angle of incidence of 20 ° on the surface of the flooring laminate. The angle of incidence of 20 ° refers to the solder, which falls on the surface of the flooring laminate. The ratio of the reflective portion to the impinging on the whole surface then represents the degree of gloss. With the process described in DIN 67 530 method, a reflectometer is determined, which is an optical characteristic variable for the surface of a specimen. This optical characteristic variable is related to the gloss of the tested surface related. Since the gloss of a surface is also a physiological and psychological conditional Large, direct measurement of the gloss is not possible. However, the Glanzvermogen let in this way (the gloss), namely, the portion that the surface area due to their reflector tion properties to the formation of glossy impression contributes to measure.

The inventive laminate flooring is characterized not only high abrasion values, high scratch and impact resistance, a resistance to stains, a weitestgehen- the resistance to cigarette and light fastness, by a simple maintenance, since the surface and completely flat so far more hygienic because of the ease of maintenance is.

The use and wear layer can be formed in one or more parts. In a multi-part construction, the use and wear layer must be applied as separate layers on the decorative layer.

The useful and / or wear layer (can) of a strahlengeharteten, in particular an electron strahlgeharteten, material, in particular polyester and / or acrylate, exist. Particularly suitable are solvent-free acrylate resins which result from Strahlenhar-, especially Elektonenstrahlhartung are gehartet. The outgoing degenerated acrylate resin has a very smooth surface and a very high light refraction quotient. This provides a very high degree of gloss of the surface occurs. Moreover, even subtleties of a decoration for the viewer are clearly visible. Furthermore, the colors of the decor appear in a special light. Also a particularly pleasant feeling is given to the user and viewer. Thus Acrylatharzoberflachen prove to the touch as warm and pleasant to the touch and radiate a pleasant maintenance meempfinden out. In addition, the antistatic properties favor the care as adhering dust can be easily removed.

When a decorative layer provided with the decor paper or film may be provided.

As support plate an HDF board (High Density Fibreboard) or a clamping plate may be provided. Of course, other materials are possible.

Advantageously, the carrier board is moisture-re- sistent, in particular impregnated.

The surface of the laminate floor may be rounded at at least two opposite side edges or chamfered. Depending on the selected geometry of the peripheral areas and dependent Farbande- made by the conclusions in the respective border areas the decor can be enhanced.

Here, the décor layer, the rounded or beveled-ranges. Provided that the floor is intended to have a uniform laminate decor, the same decor as provided on the remaining surface of the flooring laminate to the rounded or beveled areas. Of course, the edge areas can also have a different decoration in order to emphasize, for example, the joints achieved by the rounded or beveled edge areas visually.

In this offers itself if the use and wear layer comprises the rounded or beveled areas, so that these areas are adequately protected.

Conveniently, the groove / spring connection for a glueless installation with at least one latching projection and the at least one latching projection is provided corresponding recess.

In the following, embodiments of the invention illustrated in the drawings are explained. Show it:

Fig. 1 shows a section through a floor laminate with rounded edges and

Fig. 2 shows a section through another two fixed floor laminates of other embodiment.

In all figures, the same reference numerals are used for identical or similar components.
