Robina laminate flooring achieves AC4

AC4 is the scratch resistance index (Abrasion class) of Robina laminate flooring. Specifically, Abrasion class (AC) is a specification used to evaluate the wear resistance of a wood floor surface or other flooring material. It indicates how wear-resistant and durable the product is when exposed to bumps, scratches, and abrasions during daily use.

Robina and Robina Aqua laminate flooring both carry an AC4 rating, proving the floor can withstand 4000 pressure rotation on the test machine. With this indicator, we can use the floor in a high-traffic location such as a commercial store.

The meaning of each AC level on laminate flooring

AC1: Scratch resistance is extremely low and should not be used.

AC2: Scratch resistance is low, can be installed in areas with little movement such as bedrooms but is not recommended for use.

AC3: Average scratch resistance, suitable for areas with low traffic density such as homes and private offices.

AC4: Good scratch resistance so it can be installed in hallways, banquet halls,... places with high traffic density.

AC5: High scratch resistance, good installation for areas where people move frequently such as supermarkets and shopping centers.
