Thermally Fused Laminate
TFL is a laminate product once known as thermally fused melamine or TFM. TFL is made from resin-saturated paper that is fused directly to a wood composite core under very high heat and pressure. The resin that saturates the top decorated layer creates a very strong bond with the substrate, so much so that it will remain incredibly durable and never delaminate.
TFL is typically more durable than solid wood and veneers which can be easily gouged or scratched. This durability makes it more appropriate for many areas, including home furniture and closets, but it is also widely used in healthcare settings, restaurants, hotels and commercial offices.
