American Walnut Val Thorens
These wood floors use carefully selected timber and manufctured within the EC and have FSC certification. Machining and finishing are to very high standards with oils and lacquers completely pre finished, meaning no extra finishing on site.
Lacquers – In one and two component formulations, of European origin, non-toxic and low formaldehyde content, form a sealing film, resistant to the signs of traffic and penetration of stains. Widely used for matte, semiopaque and/or bright, neutral and/or coloured finishes. The film that is formed on the surface of the wood, particularly clear and transparent, highlights the natural grain of the wood. It can be polished and restored with professional maintenance.
Natural Oils – The primers that we have chosen to base oil, waxes and essential oils are among the finest and most reliable on the market, they penetrate deep into the wood and protect it. They do not create films on the surface, leaving the pores open and thus allowing good ventilation and natural elasticity. These substances are highly compatible with the structure of the wood due to and because of the same plant and mineral kingdom, made with low environmental impact, free from components harmful to humans and the environment. With oil treatments wooden floors, free from films subject to scratching, with the grain in its full splendour and finally nice to live, will become the most enjoyable element of furnishing house. The oiled floors are completely restorable with simple localized operations. Possible retouches of local area are in fact possible, and damaged areas also without the need to sand the whole surface. Recall that thanks to this treatment there is no liberation of formaldehyde nor electrostatic charges during the time.
