Bamboo flooring Model:FAQ of XINGLI BAMBOO

Description:
1. Compared with hardwood flooring, what virtues does your bamboo flooring have?
Compared with hardwood flooring, our bamboo flooring has many good virtues. First, our bamboo flooring is an
environmental product and the growing season of bamboo is much shorter than the decades for hardwood forests to
mature. Each year, one "mother tree" in the now-thinned-out acre makes several new stems that grow to full length
in a few months and to mature hardness in about five years, so our bamboo flooring has plentiful natural resource.
Secondly, our bamboo flooring has higher hardness, so it is more durable than hardwood flooring. Then the third,
our bamboo flooring can be installed very conveniently. When installed, it can be glued, nailed, or nailed with glue.
Except all the above, our bamboo flooring has better grain and is more elegant and graceful than hardwood flooring.
2. What kind of finish does your bamboo flooring use and what are the virtues of the finish?
Our bamboo flooring is finished with three coats of 100% solid UV cured urethane, which makes the flooring
resistant to abrasion, chemical and stain, fire, indentation and oiling. Furthermore, our bamboo flooring with this
kind of particular finish has another virtue of electrostatic prevention.
3. What's the moisture content of your bamboo flooring?
Our bamboo flooring is kiln dried and plastic sealed before packing, and its interior moisture content is controlled
within 8%-10%.
4. How to maintain bamboo flooring?
1. Keep the floor clean, and use soft damping cloth to scrub the floor gently.
2. Avoid osculating volumes of water. Mop up the water and clean the floor in time if that happens.
3. Place a piece of doormat at the entrance to the room so as to prevent such things as dust and sand from being
carried in. At the same time, the doormat must be keep clean.
4. Never gride on the surface of bamboo flooring with nails or enter the room in shoes with metal pins.
5. According to the service condition, wax or varnish the floor every several years and try to keep the varnish film
glabrous.
6. Keep the windows open often for ventilation and also to adjust the indoor temperature.
7. Avoid being insolated long by strong sunlight under normal conditions.
8. Keep the room as ventilated and dry as possible
5. Where does your bamboo flooring come from?
Our bamboo flooring comes from China Xingli Bamboo Products Company, which is one of the main bamboo
flooring manufacturers in China for about ten years. All bamboo material is selected before being manufactured into
floors, so the quality of our products is good and reliable. The market share in European market is over 22% in
2003.
6. What colors do your products have?
Our products have two main colors. One is natural blond color and the other is carbonated brown color.
Carbonization is a boiling process, so it may create another darker brown color.
7. How hard is your bamboo flooring?
When tested according to the standards of the National Wood Flooring Association Test (Janka Ball Hardness Test),
it shows an average hardness of 1320 PSI comparing with the northern red oak. The carbonization process reduces
the result to 1010 PSI, the strength of walnut.
8. Can you produce bamboo moldings?
Yes, we can. Our bamboo moldings include wide and narrow moldings, stair nosing, stair tread, and a base on
natural blond and carbonized brown colors. We can also produce moldings according to your designs.
9. Why does bamboo flooring become more and more popular?
Bamboo flooring is made from natural resource, which is renewable and recyclable. Buildings, barns, ships and

other structures made of bamboo often find a second life in bamboo flooring, cabinet doors, wall decor panel, vents
and ceilings. And bamboo flooring is a good choice for a healthy home.
Hardness:
--Eight virtues of bamboo floor board
(1)Hard-surface/particular abrasion resistant/No traces will be left on its surface even after several years.
(2)Burly almost no traces/keep horizontal surface/friction and scratch resistant.
(3)Cigarette tip and fire resistant/high-density/water and fire resistant.
(4)Color-lasting, fading proof/light shining and ultraviolet radiation resislat/no discoloring.
(5)Easily to tend and protect, Easy stain removing.
(6)Innocuous to health /Nature bamboo /no preservative/no irritability chemicals.
(7)Innocuous to health /Nature bamboo/no preservative/no irritability.
(8)Easy assembling and paving
--Comparison between bamboo and wood floor and its parameter
The chromatism comparison between bamboo flooring and wood flooring
Because the diameter of timber trunk is bigger than that of bamboo, which leads to that the influence on the bamboo
by sunlight is much larger than that on the trees and the chromatism difference between the positive surface and
negative surface is a bit larger, even if the quality and hierarchicy of the material is the same, its color is uneasy to
conform, however, bamboo floor boards are the other way round.
Physical property comparison between bamboo and wood
Compared with wood, bamboo has many virtues: high strength, large tenacity, strong rigidity, tractability and so on,
and has better physical mechanics performances .Its static bending strength, rigidity ,and strength of extension are
more than twice that of wood . Folding strength and surface degree of bamboo flooring made of bamboo are larger
than that of wood flooring.
