Why there is so big difference


Normal laminate flooring

The HDF of normal laminate flooring is made by mixed woods, such as poplar, weedtree and bush. The color of these HDF are dark brown. The materials are light and has no oil or less oil with poor function of water proof. It needs much more glue to bond the fiber, thus it contains more formaldehyde.

Bergeim Floors

The HDF of Bergeim laminate flooring is made by wet-land pine. Pine materials are heavier and have long growth period and wood fragrance. The wood chip is oily and ductile, and the fiber is thin and long, so it could easily bond each other by themselves. Thus the performance of water proof is much better. What’s more, less glue was needed to bond the fiber, thus it contains less formaldehyde.
