Data & Information:
Exclusive Sanding Procedure: Model Hardwood
is the only company sanding both faces of each board. This exclusive
feature results in boards of equal thickness and an evenly coated finish,
helping the installers to provide customers with a better quality installation.
Staining: Stain is applied to the surface with
a roller and two brushes that evenly coat the micro-V joints.
Sealing: the Italian-made Cefla Sorbini sealing
unit is at the cutting edge of technology. The first six coats consist
of a sealant applied individually and cured under ultraviolet lamps,
drying almost instantly.
Second Sanding: The second sander is equipped
with two heads, consisting of a roller and an electronic- sectioned
pad unit. Two brushes, an air blast and an antistatic tube remove any
trace of dust, leaving a perfectly clean surface for the last three
coats of polyurethane applied to perfection. Sander precision is measured
in hundredths of a millimetre.
Three Coats of Polyurethane Finish: A unique
process is used to apply the three coats of polyurethane. Three ultraviolet
lamps cure and harden the polyurethane in two successive stages for
Packaging: Two employees inspect the boards
during packaging. Wood surfaces are wiped delicately with the hand to
remove anything rough to the touch before placing the boards in boxes.
Strips of foam are placed bettheyen each row to protect boards during
storage and shipping. Each box indicates the date and hthe of production.
A finish that combines flexibility able to withstand
impact without flaking, high abrasion resistance, perfect adherence
to the wood and bettheyen the coats of finish for greater longevity
and exceptional appearance.
At MODEL, one of the main concerns is the importance
of mastering the application of coats of finish to the boards in order
to ensure a perfect balance bettheyen appearance and durability.
It is folly to believe that more coats of finish or
finish thickness make prefinished flooring more durable, without considering
the quality of the finish used. At MODEL, they use MODEL Plus, a polyurethane
finish containing aluminium oxide that is extremely resistant while
preserving the natural beauty of the wood. This finish is the best on
the market in terms of abrasion and adhesion tests.
Moreover, the state-of-the-art finishing line produces
a finish with no ribbing that is absolutely unsurpassed on the market
today. Nine coats of polyurethane containing aluminium oxide are cured
under 11 ultraviolet lamps. the finishing line is the only one to operate
two stations with three lamps each for better curing. The result, naturally,
is a more durable finish.
The MODEL Plus finish is extremely abrasion-resistant
and will maintain its beautiful appearance for many years.
