Bamboo stalks are crushed into fibers or “strands”. The natural strands are infused with a dense adhesive compound that is free from added urea-formaldehyde and harmful VOC's. These strands are then cold pressed into long “railroad tie” blocks, carefully kiln dried and then conditioned over several months to ensure maximum stability. These long blocks are then precision milled into veneers and conditioned again to meet the various demands of North American climates. The construction features an innovative cross-grain engineered traditional bamboo core to reduce unwanted expansion and contraction with a top and bottom layer of strandwoven bamboo for perfect balance. This dynamic and proprietary construction provides the most stable platform in the flooring industry while still maintaining the status as a 100% rapidly renewable resource.
