What is Green Core Wood Flooring?

Green wood floor is an industrial wood floor using a green core HDF layer (Green HDF), a man-made material with more than 80% of the ingredients coming from natural wood. The characteristic green color of this wood core comes from the coloring agent, the purpose is to distinguish it from other types of wood.

Blue Core HDF (Green HDF) is produced to replace natural wood planks in construction, furniture making, etc. in places with low temperature and humidity conditions. The moisture resistance of this material comes from many ways such as: adding Copper Oxide in the ingredients, using a water-resistant binder, or simply increasing the compressibility.

Anti-scratch surface coating.
Decorative layer simulates natural wood grain.
