Bamboo surfaces manufacturer Teragren is launching two new flooring collections in 2014 that feature a high-performance hardwax-oil finish, on both a solid and an engineered platform.
Called Visions and Vantage II, the new collections from Teragren feature 13 new products, 8 new colors and a new wire-brushed finish option on the Vantage II engineered platform.
Made from their premium Xcoraâ„¢ strand bamboo that is 160% harder than oak, the new collections are finished with Rubio hardwax-oil.
"We've been looking into adding an oil-finish to our assortment for a few years now" said Teragren President, Mike Boshart. "There are many uncertainties out there among retailers and installers around oil-finishes, and we wanted to make sure that we brought to market the highest performing, easiest to maintain option. We found the right match with Rubio hardwax-oil, and in conjunction with the design-forward color options, believe that these new looks meet the Teragren standards for performance, style, and environmental friendliness."
Resistant to water spots and other liquid spills, the hardwax-oil finish works by molecularly bonding to the top fibers of the flooring plank, thereby sealing the surface and leaving a matte finish that offers a strong protective coating, highlighting the natural fiber of the floor with an open-grain look. With standard cleaning and maintenance, a Teragren hardwax-oil finished floor will never need to be sanded and refinished.
Perfect for commercial installations, you will find the Rubio hardwax-oil finish on the floors of the W Hotel in Dallas, the Four Seasons Hotel in Baltimore, and Google offices all over the world.
