A Resilient Dining Table Top: Thermo-Fused Laminate

October 12, 2022

There’s something about a dining table that truly holds a lot of depth. It’s where the family gathers to eat, perhaps play board games, and do arts and crafts. One day, your toddler is sitting at the table scooping peas, and soon, that toddler becomes a teen burning the midnight oil, working on their school paper at the same table.

A dining table tends to stay with the family for generations, and with it comes memories and plenty of stories to tell. Modern dining tables can blend perfectly with your decor or become the focal point of a room. In either case, we recommend choosing the perfect table where you can see yourself and your family gathering for years to come.

And some of the most resilient dining tables that can stand the test of time are those designed with thermo-fused laminate. As a modern furniture store in Calgary, our dining tables offer both functionality and beauty.

What is thermo-fused laminate (TFL)?

Thermo-fused laminate (TFL) uses steel press plates to emboss the decorative layer, enhancing the realism of wood, stone, and other abstract designs. TFL is made by fusing the decor paper directly into a substrate. This is done by applying heat and pressure to activate the resin, cross-linking the decor paper with the substrate. The result is a finished product ready to be machined and used for furniture, flooring, fixtures, cabinets, and more.

The benefits of TFL dining tables

TFL is preferred for places that experience heavy traffic, such as retail, commercial, and healthcare settings, for its resilient surface. Unlike other materials such as natural wood, TFL dining tables are resilient against normal wear and tear from everyday use. Specifically for dining tables, TFL offers the following benefits:

  • Excellent scratch and wear resistance
  • Cost-effective method for design
  • Wide variety of patterns and textures to choose from
  • Low maintenance

At Revolve Furnishings, we feature thermo-fused laminate dining table tops from our trusted Quebec manufacturer, Amisco. Visit our Calgary showroom at 7070 11 Street SE to see our dining tables in person, or contact us to find out more.
