What is Acrylic-urethane?

This floor sealer is slightly different chemically than polyurethane, but it imparts the same benefits, namely a lasting bond to the wood and a tough finish that provides superior abrasion resistance.

What is UV-cured flooring?

A floor that is UV-cured simply means that the coating applied is hardened using ultraviolet light instead of heat. It is common in the flooring industry and other industries such as automotive, graphics, instruments, furniture, pool cue manufacturing and other wood craft industries. This method of curing the finish also reduces off gassing, making it safer for the factory workers as well as the end user.

What is Aluminum-Oxide?

Aluminum oxide urethane floor finish typically refers to a layer of microchips made of metal that is added to high-end wood floors that greatly increases the longevity of the finish. Adding this layer to the finish process results in extremely high abrasion resistance, which is why our flooring is used in so many retail locations like restaurants and fitness centers. Despite the ominous sounding name, this layer is not hazardous, as all of our floors meet the CARB Phase 2 Indoor Air Standard, which is the most strict in the world.

Benefits of a UV-Cured Aluminum-Oxide Acrylic Urethane Finish

As mentioned above, the key benefit to this bamboo flooring finish is its longevity and toughness. Our floors can go for decades without being refinished. This premium finish holds up well to water droplets, and surface scratches will buff out over time just from walking on them.

Bamboo Flooring VS Hardwood Flooring Comparison Chart

Bamboo & Eucalyptus Flooring: Smart, Sustainable Choices for Your Home

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth with a tensile strength comparable to steel. Despite being categorized as hardwood flooring, bamboo is actually a grass, not a wood, and it grows in specific climates all over the world. When made into flooring, it is beautiful, durable and sustainable.

Eucalyptus also re-grows very quickly — in as little as 3 years, and our eucalyptus flooring is just as hard as our strand bamboo. For these reasons, bamboo and eucalyptus are rapidly becoming some of the most popular types of residential and commercial hardwood floors installed today. When discussing the pros and cons of different flooring types, it is not hard to see why these tough, eco-friendly floors are being chosen by the world's leading designers and architects for their most important projects.

How Ambient® Floors Are Made

To make our flooring, we harvest A grade Moso bamboo when it is between five and seven years old (6" to 8" in diameter) to ensure maximum strength, durability, and quality. After stripping off the outer layer of green skin, we slice only the middle of the culm — the most resilient part of the stalk — into long strips. Depending on the type of flooring, the strips are then heated, dried, and fused together under immense pressure to make flooring boards. Want to know more? Check out our in-depth look at how bamboo floors are made.

Our eucalyptus strand flooring is made much in the same way, using hand-picked raw materials that regenerate in as little as 3 years. Our strand woven compression process, precision milling techniques and proprietary AccuSeal Ultra® finish system result in a wide variety of stylish, stable bamboo and eucalyptus flooring options that will last and add value to your home. Ambient® has attained a reputation as a leading supplier of sustainable building materials available on the market today. This is because we were one of the first companies in the world to design and sell strand woven flooring.

Why Bamboo & Eucalyptus Flooring?

Ambient® is proud to harvest all of the raw materials used in its flooring from well-managed forests. We are also proud to carry Floorscore Certified products that are tested annually to ensure they are within standards such as CARB Phase II, which is the strictest indoor air standard in the world. Another advantage of our bamboo flooring is that it also contributes to LEED credits and meets the strictest environmental standards. The Forest Stewardship Council is an independent, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world's forests.

Here are a few benefits of our flooring:

  • They are hardwood floors — same sound and feel
  • 3X harder than most hardwoods
  • 50% less expensive than comparable hardwoods
  • Re-grows in 3-7 years VS up to 70 years for hardwoods
  • Cleaned and maintained like hardwoods
  • Moisture and stain resistant
  • Can be installed over numerous types of subflooring, including concrete

Bamboo is an Earth-Friendly Choice for Many Reasons

If there are bamboo and eucalyptus flooring cons that are holding you back from trying out our flooring, we urge you to also consider one of the greatest advantages of this flooring: its environmental impact. Below, you’ll find a few of the many benefits of our flooring on the environment:

Fast regrowth. Almost 1 million acres of forest vanish per week. While a 60-foot hardwood cut for market takes 60 years to replace, a 60-foot bamboo cut for market takes only 59 days to replace.* When comparing bamboo flooring vs hardwood these benefits are difficult to ignore.

Greater biomass & oxygen. Bamboo produces greater biomass — a renewable energy source — and 30% more oxygen than a hardwood forest of comparable size.

Reduces CO2. Bamboo helps reduce carbon dioxide gasses. Some bamboo sequesters up to 12 tons of carbon dioxide per hectare.

Serves as a water barrier. Due to its widespread root system and large canopy, bamboo greatly reduces rain runoff, prevents massive soil erosion and keeps twice as much water in a watershed. It also helps mitigate water pollution due to its high nitrogen consumption.

Restores degraded lands. Bamboo can be grown in soil damaged by overgrazing and poor agriculture. Proper harvesting does not kill the bamboo plant, so the topsoil is held in place. Bamboo's dense litter on the forest floor feeds the topsoil, restoring healthy agricultural lands for generations to come.
