Bamboo tiles making machine is used to manufacture a variety of products from bamboo including bamboo flooring, bamboo panels and bamboo board. It is an ecologically friendly alternative to conventional building materials and has become increasingly popular for its environmental sustainability and x-treme durability.
The production of bamboo flooring is a complex process that involves several stages: harvesting, processing, sizing, drying, gluing, pressing, moulding and sanding. It also includes the application of a moisture seal and UV curing for additional protection against damage and wear and tear.
First, the stalks are cut into strips based on their length and width. These strips are then soaked in adhesives and laid out in different orientations before being compressed in giant hydraulic presses.
Horizontal Strips: These strips are adhered edge to edge, skin side up, for a classic bamboo look that shows the nodes, or “knuckles.” This type of floor is less likely to show dents than vertical bamboo and comes in natural or carbonized (heated during manufacturing to give it a caramel-like hue).
Engineered Bamboo Planks: This type of flooring starts with the same process as horizontal strips but uses a different method to bind them together. This results in a more dense, two to three times harder material than solid strips. It also provides an excellent surface for special finishes and surface treatments, such as colorfast felt or furniture sliders under chairs and other furniture.
Strand-Woven: This is a more recent development in the bamboo industry. It requires a more specialized machine and requires more labor to produce but is considered the most durable of all bamboo floors and can be produced in a range of wood-look styles.
It’s also easier to install than hardwood or tile because of its strength and flexibility. Moreover, it can be stained or painted to add a custom color or luster to the floor.
Another important step is the selection of the appropriate bamboo species for your project. This will determine its hardness, stability, dimensional stability and fire resistance. It is recommended to choose a bamboo that has been re-grown for many years or harvested at least every five years, which will ensure it is healthy and hardy enough to stand up to high traffic in the home.
Unlike hardwood, it can be harvested at any time of year, making it an abundant and renewable resource that is continuously rejuvenating itself. This enables it to meet the needs of a growing world population without depleting natural resources or damaging the environment.
Once the bamboo is ready to be used, it undergoes a specialized cleaning and staining process. In addition, it is treated with a clear coating like aluminium oxide to give more protection against damage and wear and tear.
The final product is then boxed and shipped to the consumer. This product is typically LEED certified, which means it has been tested and approved as a green building material that can contribute to a sustainable economy.
