Quality Testing for Decorative Laminates


Most of the top laminate brands in India conform to the Indian standards that are set by BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) and which are specified in detail in the Indian Standard document numbered IS: 2046 -1995. Several Indian laminate companies also export their products to other countries and conform to international standards such as the British Standard specifications for laminates.
