Testing Facilities

Prior to a product receiving the NALFA certification seal, a sample must be sent to an approved testing facility where procedures are strictly specified for accurate examination. The file below contains a list of known laboratories that can test to the NALFA/ANSI Standard. NALFA does not endorse particular labs nor warrant their performance. Laminate manufacturers should exercise their own business discretion in selecting a lab. Laboratories wishing to be added to our list should contact Sharon Edmondson at information@nalfa.com.
