In the production of bamboo flooring, the moisture content is strictly controlled to reduce the cracking and deformation rate of bamboo flooring.

2. What is formaldehyde? Formaldehyde is a chemical substance with strong irritation. In the production process of bamboo flooring, formaldehyde is one of the indispensable components in floor adhesives. Therefore, most of the bamboo flooring in the market contains formaldehyde. In the production process of bamboo flooring, due to the strict procedures, the formaldehyde emission of bamboo flooring is extremely weak, and it is one of the flooring products with less formaldehyde emission in the floor. Therefore, it can be said to be environmentally friendly.

According to the usual practice, the thickness of planing is about 5.5 cm, but in order to save the cost of bamboo chips, some manufacturers plan to 6.3 cm to leave a cavity, which seriously affects the quality of the product.

3. Treatment of bamboo chips: Through the high-tech physical treatment of bamboo fiber cells, the environment for insect and mildew breeding is removed from the root, which solves the problem of insects and mildew in bamboo, and prolongs the service life of bamboo. Outdoor bamboo material does not contain chemical substances and will not cause pollution to humans, animals and the environment.
