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 Waterblock 8.6mm 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 Waterblock 8.6mm 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, Waterblock 8.6mm 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.
Waterblock 8.6mm 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.
The High-Density Fibreboard (HDF) coreboard forms the basis of Waterblock 8.6mm 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 comprises a mixture of compressed wood fibres and hydrophobic materials. It can withstand immersion in water for 200 hours with negligible thickness swelling, tested by Entwicklungs- und Prüflabor Holztechnologie GmbH (EPH).
The coreboard, made of waterproof composite material, 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 Waterblock 8.6mm 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.
The coreboard is deformed to create deep structures, imitating scraped wood, cracks, gaps, and bevelled edges found in solid wood planks. Micro-E is the technology used to create a micro-bevel (30-45°) at the edge of the floorboard, to remove the sharpened edges. Flooring with micro-bevels has a better aesthetic than those with square edges.
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.
Watertight joints and the Waterblock HDF ensure that mop water and spills will not cause any damage. The melamine resin surface is fully waterproof by nature. Although designed for improved resistance to water and moisture, excessive wetting and standing water should be avoided. Waterblock 8.6mm is suitable for rooms with high humidity. However, it is unsuitable for outdoor areas and rooms with permanently high moisture load, such as shower cubicles, saunas, and rooms with floor drain.
Real Wood Grain (RWG) intensifies the depth, texture, and realistic look of Waterblock 8.6mm. The precisely milled micro-bevel, embossed wood textures, and matt surface create the perception and impression of naturally oiled wood.
Waterblock HDF contains only recovered wood. These are wood waste collected from sawmills, forest management processes and roadside maintenance that would otherwise be burned or discarded. So instead of harvesting new trees, we only use wood by-products. We use no round logs and endangered trees in our manufacturing process. Waterblock 8.6mm does not contain any PVC, plasticisers (phthalates), heavy metals, pesticides or other harmful additives, thus reducing emissions. Rest assured that Waterblock 8.6mm has an excellent environmental footprint, is safe to use and can be recycled at the end of its life cycle.
Whether for a completely new building, renovating existing houses or individual rooms, Waterblock 8.6mm is up to any challenge. In addition to being easy to clean, resistant to cigarette burns, minimising ambient sound and footfalls and being warm underfoot, it also lasts a very long time. The click system makes it easy to install on the staircase, living room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. Waterblock 8.6mm is also suitable for high-humidity areas.
Waterblock 8.6mm is also suitable for shop and exhibition construction, whether you are looking for flooring for an individually designed shop, an exhibition stand or a temporary shop-in-shop. Temporary constructions can be quick thanks to the cost-effective floating installation with no time-consuming preparatory work required. With Floorbit underlay, Waterblock 8.6mm is robust and can easily withstand heavy loads. The underlay also protects the subfloor. Waterblock 8.6mm can be installed in a wide range of areas, from cashier areas, entrances and exits, walkways and changing rooms to storage and social rooms, as well as offices and emergency escape routes.
Hydrophobic technology prevents droplets of water, wine, paint, and so on from being soaked in, enabling easy maintenance and cleaning. The sealed surface, in combination with the correct cleaning technique (mop and cleaning product), will guarantee the complete removal of all dust including fine dust. Because of the waterproof coreboard, an accident with a glass of water falling on the floor, for example, is not a problem. Nevertheless, we recommended removing any standing moisture as soon as reasonably possible. Waterblock 8.6mm can be cleaned easily with a damp mop or steam cleaner (household appliance). Waterblock 8.6mm also does not require time-consuming oiling or sealing treatment, and the colour doesn’t fade in direct sunlight.
Waterblock 8.6mm are pet-proof. But if your pet has a little "accident", make sure that it is cleaned up straight away. The surface is enhanced with a highly durable layer, providing micro-scratch protection for pet scratches, skateboards, desk and chair drag marks, and so on.
