Alternative to tropical hardwood
Around 40% of the bamboo stem is used in the production of traditional bamboo products such as flooring and panels. For ABC, between 90 and 95% of the bamboo stem is used. ABC is made up of bamboo fibres, dipped in a resin. Once dry, the materials are pressed under high pressure and then baked like a loaf in a tin. The loaf is then processed into planks. Depending on the end product new material is made up between 80% to 90% bamboo. The glue used meets European emission level E1
