What is Wood-Powder Technology?

Wood-Powder Technology is a cutting-edge technique that blends wood powder, derived from waste streams of woodworking, with resins for the creation of a resilient and adaptable flooring system. This technique employs advanced manufacturing processes to melt the wood powder, resins, and design layer into actual wood floors. The process is carried out under the influence of high pressure and heat. Consequently, the floors are not only highly durable but also possess the advantages of both laminate and vinyl flooring. They still retain the appearance of a genuine wood floor.

What makes Wood-Powder Technology unique?

The floors produced through Wood-Powder Technology are distinguished by their ability to maintain the warmth and texture of real wood while providing the durability and performance of laminate and vinyl. They are extremely pressure-resistant, resistant to scratches, moisture, heavy loads, and wear, thanks to the unique manufacturing process and the addition of resins. As a result, they are perfect for both intense domestic and commercial use. These features make them a popular choice among wood floor enthusiasts. With Wood-Powder Technology, you can enjoy the benefits of a low-maintenance, durable floor that looks and feels like real wood.

Hybrid Wood Collection

The collection that features Wood-Powder Technology is called the “Hybrid Wood” collection. This collection offers a variety of flooring styles and colours, ranging from rustic oak to subtle wood species. Each floor in the collection has a unique look and character, ensuring that there is a floor to match your personal style and interior.

Hybrid Wood floors offer several benefits. The floors are easy to install, thanks to the Fastclick fastening system. This system allows you to fit your room with real wood floors in a short amount of time. Additionally, the floors are easy to maintain and clean, making them ideal for busy households or commercial spaces where cleanliness is crucial. Another important aspect of the Hybrid Wood collection is its durability. By using Wood-Powder as a renewable and recycled raw material, this collection helps contribute to a sustainable future.

But isn’t the Wood-Powder layer sensitive to moisture?

When considering floors with Wood-Powder Technology, a common concern is whether the wood-like layer is susceptible to moisture. Specific components support the Wood-Powder layer, providing excellent water resistance for the straight planks. To prevent moisture problems, the Wood-Powder layer combines with a water-resistant carrier plate. This carrier plate acts as a protective barrier between the substrate and the wood-powder layer. This prevents moisture from reaching the floor. Additionally, a water-resistant PU lacquer layer is applied to the design layer of the straight Hybrid Wood floors. This makes those floors water-resistant for up to 24 hours. So, if you accidentally spill something, there is no need to panic immediately 😉.

Sustainable choice

Wood-Powder Technology has brought innovation to the world of wood flooring by combining the natural beauty of wood with the benefits of laminate and vinyl. The Hybrid Wood collection is an innovative line of floors that feature this outstanding technology, providing durable, versatile, and stylish options. If you seek a floor that combines the warmth of wood with the sustainability and performance of laminate and vinyl flooring, Hybrid Wood floors are the perfect choice for you.
