Washington, DC, June 11, 2024-The North America Laminate Flooring Association (NALFA) is currently reaching another milestone with the development of a Moulding Test Method, which will cover a wide range of products, spanning from accessory/transition mouldings to tread coverings. The development of the method is a collaborative effort between four leading companies in the flooring industry (Framerica, Mohawk, Versatrim, and Zamma) and North Carolina State’s Hodges Wood Products Laboratory. 

Initial testing and research yielded promising results, showcasing the potential for integrating existing NALFA test methods into the evaluation of moulding products. Among the tests conducted are the following:
