Color: Typically available in light (manila/yellow tones) or dark (tannish brown) shades. Colors vary between manufacturers.
Grain: Distinctive grain pattern shows nodes from the bamboo stalks.
Species & Grade Variations: Available either horizontally or vertically laminated. Horizontal construction tends to show nodes more prominently.
Hardness (Janka): Bamboo is a grass. Janka values vary widely between various manufacturers and between horizontal and vertical construction.
Dimensional Stability: Engineered construction.
Sawing/Machining: Cuts easily with most tools.
Sanding: Due to its unique, fibrous structure, bamboo should not be sanded across the grain or at a 45-degree angle to the grain. Its light color tends to show swirl marks, other sanding marks and finish imperfections, much as a light maple floor can.
- First Cut: 60 at a 7-15 degree angle with the grain
- Second Cut: 80 straight with the grain
- Third Cut: 100 or 120
- Hard Plate: Not recommended
- First Screen: 100 or 120
- Second Screen: 150
Nailing: No known problems.
Finishing: All surface-type finishes have been used successfully with bamboo. Darker colors may tend to show lap marks—moving quickly during application and applying finish quickly around cut-in areas can minimize this effect. Filling is recommended.
Comments: Mostly available factory-finished. Because the product is rigid, installers should pay careful attention to the flatness of the subfloor.
