Wood is a valuable natural resource, and we transform it into something very special; we approach our work with complete respect and a sensitive touch. Our surface finishes with high quality oils or varnishes accentuate the individual character of the wood and imbue it with long-lasting protection. The different surface finish variants have many different properties.
Varnish is a special surface treatment that makes our Longlife parquet flooring and Lindura wood flooring extremely durable and easy to maintain. The ‘Duratec Plus’ varnish seal consists of seven layers in total. The mixture of varnishes in the individual layers and their order takes into account that parquet floors may possibly be sanded down. The entire construction consists of a formaldehyde-free, UV-hardened and ecologically non-harmful acrylic varnish. The varnish is available in three looks: lacquered, high-gloss lacquered and matt lacquered. Lacquered floors have an elegant, slightly glossy surface. The high-gloss varnish looks extremely luxurious; matt varnish, on the other hand, really brings out the best in many woods, lending them a warm, natural look.
Natural oils and waxes are the basis for our Longlife parquet's naturally oiled surfaces. ‘Weartec® Nature’ finish penetrates deep into the wood and forms a protective, breathable surface. This kind of finish creates a natural appearance with subtle brilliance, emphasises the grain as well as the structure, has a moisture-regulating effect and ensures a healthy living climate. All Longlife parquet and Lindura floors with a Weartec® Nature surface are treated so that they are ready for residential use. After installation, they only need to be treated with care oil if they are located in commercial areas or areas where they are subjected to heavy use (such as hallways or kitchens). However, the naturally oiled surface does require a regular polish, which gives the floor a natural shine and ensures exceptional resistance. It can be re-oiled and partly refinished without any sanding down, if needed.
