The overlay is a transparent film, impregnated with melamine and phenol resins for enhanced durability, that protects the decor paper underneath from mechanical influence. This top layer makes Ultraboden 8.5mm resistant to stains, wear, impact, scratches, burns, and household chemicals. Its lightfast surface remains stable for many years.
Natural Wood Grain
You can feel the texture of fine wood grain on the surface of the floor. This texture is added based on digital scans of wood veneer.
By aligning the embossing of the wood grain with the decor design, the surface texture of Ultraboden 8.5mm matches the design of the printed decorative layer. When you move your fingers over the surface you can feel the texture of wood pores, filled knots, and cracks, just like you would with real wood flooring such as parquet.
Rated as AC3, Ultraboden 8.5mm is suitable for residential areas with intensive use, such as in kitchens and entrance halls, and commercial areas with little use, such as in hotel rooms and small offices.
Ultraboden 8.5mm is non-staining. Even furniture or chair castors leave no traces. The floor is easy to clean due to the tightly sealed surface preventing dirt from sticking. Stains of all kinds, in the kitchen or otherwise, can easily be removed from the planks using acetone, thinner, or alcohol.
The textures on the floorboards increase stability and reduce the chances of slips and falls. The anti-slip properties ensure a comfortable walking experience in all rooms.
Decor describes the appearance of a floor’s surface. Wood surface reproduction is printed on the decorative paper using digital imaging techniques.
The decorative paper is resistant to fading due to an aluminium oxide coating on the overlay. This prevents fading caused by exposure to a light to moderate amount of sunlight.
Natural Wood Look
Real Wood Grain (RWG) technology intensifies the depth, texture, and realistic look of Ultraboden 8.5mm. The precisely milled micro-bevel, embossed wood textures, and matt surface create the perception and impression of naturally oiled wood. The decorative layer is a high-resolution photo of real wood reproduced with sophisticated digital printing techniques and finished with melamine resin.
The High-Density Fibreboard (HDF) coreboard forms the basis of Ultraboden 8.5mm and provides stability to the product. This is where we find the largest proportion of wood, as HDF consists of highly compressed wood fibres. HDF provides better plank stability and allows the click profile to be precisely manufactured. HDF is twice as dense as softwood, so it is more resistant to wear and tear. The coreboard is also environmentally responsible because it contains wood by-products that would otherwise be burned or put into landfills.
The coreboard is made of compressed wood fibres with an extremely high average density of 1500kg/m³, significantly above the average density of regular HDF coreboards of 850-880 kg/m³. As a result, the HDF middle layer makes the planks relatively heavy, so they do not vibrate easily and are highly resistant to wear and tear.
The coreboard was tested and certified for 0% thickness swelling (TS) after 24 hours, which exceeds the EN 13329 requirement for average TS of 18% or lower after 24 hours. The coreboard has a high degree of hardness, density, and insignificant swelling behaviour to moisture. High moisture resistance prevents the joints from swelling. In addition, all four sides of the Ultraboden 8.5mm planks are coated by a water-repellent agent made of paraffin and impregnating oil using a vacuum nozzle-powered injection system. Thus, the edges of the planks are well-protected from moisture. Ultraboden 8.5mm can survive flooding.
The coreboard achieved an ASTM E84-19b Class A rating. Ultraboden 8.5mm can slow the spread of flames and smoke in the event of a fire.
This waterproof melamine resin backing layer helps to balance the product and provides a high degree of dimensional stability. It ensures that the floor will not cup or bow when properly installed and maintained.
Our logos are embossed at the back of each plank to signify the authenticity of the product.
