TFL manufactured by Funder America and used by Allied Interior Solutions is manufactured using heat to fuse resin impregnated papers directly to the board surface effectively sealing the substrate against water penetration. Decorative Papers offer less resistance to water as they are not directly fused to the surface of the board.
As you can see from the Boiling Water Test the TFL performs much better over a 4 Hour period of exposure. The test simulates a hot beverage spilled on the surface and left for an extended period. The TFL shows no impact while the Decorative Paper bubbles due to its inferior water resistance.
Take comfort in knowing your project has an increased level of water resistance only available by using TFL
