Manufacturing of bamboo flooring:

Horizontal Bamboo Flooring
If the bamboo is to be used to manufacture flooring, the external knots are removed and the pole is split or sawn into slats, the interior knots are then removed and the slats are then planed.
The green outer skin is removed by planing.
It is at this stage that the slats will receive the preventive treatment against fungi and insects.
The slats of bamboo can be kept clear in their original color, or they may be colored in an autoclave oven at high temperature, it is the process of carbonization.
The slats are then dried.
The slats are again planed, calibrated and sorted according to their colors in order to homogenize the tint of the future floorboards.
The bamboo slats are glued at high pressure and high temperature, with an environmentally adhesive conforms to the standard E1.

The bamboo slats are pressed next to each other horizontally. This produces a panel or board having the characteristics of bamboo nodes (called here plain pressed or Horizontal)
Or, instead of being pressed to the horizontal sections can also be pressed laterally onto the edge. The panel then has finer lines and nodes of the bamboo are slightly less visible (in this case side pressed or Vertical).

The resulting panels are sanded and cut to the required dimensions for floor boards, panels, accessories.
Then the final step is to make the tongues and grooves.
A final quality control is performed during packaging.
Density of bamboo flooring is 750 kg / m3.
