Top Layer: Solid Hardwood Wear Layer • Thick solid-sawn veneer allows for multiple re-sandings • True solid plank look with engineered stability • Highest quality zero formaldehyde adhesive used for glueing components Side Strips: Solid Douglas Fir • Contributes to overall stability by sealing off fillet endgrain, thereby reducing changes to core moisture content • DACS tongue and groove simulate the function and appearance of solid wood flooring Middle Layer: Douglas Fir Cross-Laminated Fillets • Superior rigidity prevents cupping and width shrinkage • Nail down strength identical to solid wood flooring Bottom Layer: Solid Douglas Fir Balancing Layer • Same thickness as wear layer for the ultimate in balanced stability • Improved performance for glue-down applications Wood Adhesive: Used To Glue All Components Together • Highest Quality Low-VOC Wood Glue • Formaldehyde Free • Compatible with regulations governing air quality such as California’s CARB 2 and Japan’s F Four Star standards
