99.99% BACTERIAL LOAD REDUCTION.
For its wooden floorings Original Parquet developed finishing varnishes with hygienic activity reducing the bacterial load to a 99.99%. The biocide action can result through the interaction with biological target structures, or through interferences in the cell metabolic and energetic processes; in other words blocking the bacteria’s breathing provoking its death as a consequence. The wooden floors treated with these varnishes enable to have a first precaution in case there is need to reduce bacterial contamination in a short time, especially when it might be very difficult to guarantee a deep cleansing due to the position of the base itself or in public environments where an immediate hygienic action may be necessary. The treatment is particularly suitable for wooden floors in houses or environments with pets.

MAX FORT

ABRASION RESISTANCE
Original Parquet, always committed to finding products with the best characteristics, has developed protection varnishes that enable the wooden floor to be very resistant to abrasion. The company is equipped with a TABER test equipment that determines and certifies an abrasion resistance coefficient of each product. Thus MaxFORT, a highly resistant finishing suitable for high treading civil and public environments, with was created. This treatment is obtained through the use of aluminium oxide and nanotechnologies.

NO STAIN

RESISTANCE TO CHEMICAL AGENTS
The products reporting on their packages “Original Parquet lavorato in Italia” are tested for resistance to several chemical agents present in our daily lives, at home or at our offices. Ink, coffee, wine, vinegar, alcohol, acetone are those agents which can fall down on the floor every day.
Original Parquet’s wooden floorings give admirable results in terms of resistance to such agents even these agents were to lie on the floor for a long time before being cleaned.

CFL-S1

Through its productive cycle, Original Parquet, is able to supply the CFLS1 certification which means having a Class 1 wooden floor for fire reaction. This certification will have to be expressly requested at the moment of ordering the material. Original Parquet has obtained the certifications that result under the UNI EN 13501-1 regulation for all the wood floors in Oak with support in Fir, Birch and Poplar.

Screening (VOC)

As far as VOC screening is concerned, the results are excellent <.005 and are indicated as per gas chromatography tests and thus the VOCs are to be considered practically absent.
The compounds that belong to this category are more than 300. The best known are aliphatic hydrocarbons (form nhexane, to nhexadecane and methylhexane), terpene, aromatic hydrocarbons, (benzene e derivates, toluene, oxylene, styrene), halogenated hydrocarbons (chloroform, dichloromethane, chlorobenzene, etc.), alcols (ethanol, propanol, buthanol e derivates), esters, ketone, and aldehyde (amongst which formaldehyde). Exposure to VOCs can cause chronic and acute effects. According to the concentrations, acute effects may include eye, nose and throat irritation, headache, nausea, vertigo, asthma. Exposure to high concentrations of these chemical compounds can cause chronic effects such as kidney damage, liver damage and damage to the central nervous system, cancer. People who are more inclined to get sick are those with respiratory problems, children, the elderly and people who are sensitive to chemical compounds.

Release of formaldehyde

Another important certification for Original Parquet products is adherence to class E1 regarding release of Formaldehyde that is present in glues used to make the “sandwiches” of prefinished flooring.
The amount released in Easy Plancia is excellent as per analyses carried out in compliance with UNI EN 71721996.

Original Parquet can also produce wood floors with zero formaldehyde emissions on which the company has obtained the F **** result (4 stars) of the Japanese JIS test. All the plywood panels used for this kind of production are certified CARB PHASE II and TSCA Title VI.
