How is HempWood® Flooring Made?
The process of creating HempWood® flooring starts in the field. All of the fiber hemp is sourced within 100 miles of the factory from local farmers. After the hemp is collected, a soy-based adhesive is used to bind full-length fiber hemp stalks. After the hemp stalks and soy-based adhesive are combined, the material is compressed and baked to form HempWood® Blocks.
From the Blocks, 4mm HempWood® veneers are cut for the top layer of the engineered flooring.
For the substrate, a 5-layer PureBound® Hardwood Plywood is used. The plywood is sourced from Columbia Forest Products, which is located in West Virginia. By using PureBound® Plywood, we are able to maintain our eco-friendly mission and support the American economy.
After cutting the veneers and ripping the plywood, our flooring is assembled with the help of our PUR glue line. After adhering the HempWood® veneer to the Purebond® Plywood, a tongue and groove profile is cut into the flooring. The tongue and groove profile and engineered format allows for ease of installation on both wood and concrete subfloors. HempWood® Flooring can be installed by nail down, glue down, or floating.
The boards are then sanded and surveyed for any blemishes. Our quality control team hand checks each board and ensures that our flooring upholds our standard of hardness and durability.
HempWood® Hardwood Flooring comes in two options: Unfinished and Prefinished options. The Unfinished option has no added sealers, stains, or coatings. Unfinished offers the ability to customize according to your interior preferences. Our Prefinished options include Natural and Bourbon. Our Prefinished options are coated with eco-friendly Bona® products. Our Natural option simply magnifies the beauty of the HempWood® with no added tints. Our Bourbon option offers a dark earthy brown color.
