99% of laminate flooring is NOT termite resistant

The wood core of laminate flooring is formed by taking advantage of natural wood chips. The appearance of this flooring material reduces the state of logging in the world. Under the development of science and technology, the compressibility of the wood core is increasingly improved. Up to now, most laminate flooring uses HDF (high density fiberboard) wood core.

As shown in the illustration, in addition to the wood core, the flooring is also equipped with a leveling base, decorative grain and surface protection coating. The locking jaws are used to assemble the boards manufactured directly on the wood core. From the very beginning, termites cannot attack from the surface or base of the board.

Why is Robina laminate flooring anti-termite?

The termite resistance of Robina laminate flooring comes from a combination of high technology and quality wood core.

The termite resistance of tropical hardwoods

Solid wood core
It is the high humidity and warm temperatures of the tropical environment that promote plant growth. Not stopping there, the plants also compete with each other for resources. The rapid development has made wood density of tropical hardwoods is higher, providing better termite resistance than softwoods.

Wood density is the mass of wood in a unit volume. It measures how tight and concentrated the wood fibers are in the tree. The higher the wood density, the heavier the wood and the more wood fibers per unit volume.

High Lignin Content

Lignin is an organic component in wood and tropical hardwoods that are often high in lignin. Lignin has anti-termite and anti-mildew properties, which increase the wood's resistance to termites.

Good moisture resistance

The combination of high wood density, complex wood cell structure and not low lignin content makes tropical hardwoods moisture resistant. That's not to mention the tropical area is home to oilseed trees, which have oils that limit water penetration - rot resistant - have good weather resistance.

Natural termite repellent available in wood

Termites are not interested in tropical trees because some types carry substances such as tannins, oleoresin, etc. anti-bacterial, anti-termite, anti-insect substances.

Bitter resin

Resin is a natural substance produced by plants to protect themselves from attack by insects and termites. Some tropical hardwoods contain bitter resin, which has anti-termite properties.
