Product Description

EcoFusion’s name says it all. They fuse renewable and recycled materials with the latest, super-hard (formaldehyde free) resins to create breathtakingly beautiful flooring. Renewable, plantation grown bamboo and hardwood scraps from furniture manufacture are their materials of choice, and top drawer flooring is the end result. For many years a supplier to other companies of what one consumer magazine chose as the best hardwood flooring for 3 years in a row (2009 through 2011), EcoFusin introduced their own brand in 2012 and quickly established themselves as the industry’s quality leader.

The following excerpt from EcoFusion’s web site will give you an idea of their commitment to the environmental conservation as well as to creating a consistently high-quality product.

THE STRAND WOVEN PROCESS

The driving force behind the EcoFusion products is the idea of creating a beautiful floor that is more durable and environmentally friendly than any hardwood or bamboo product in the world. The most important aspect in the manufacturing process is the fact that EcoFusion controls the raw material from harvest to the final production. Although others may also make this claim, EcoFusion is truly THE ONLY 100% vertically integrated bamboo product imported into North America. This allows our ISO Certified  (ISO = International Organization of Standards)facility to control the quality from start to finish without relying on raw materials from the open market.

Our unique manufacturing process is similar for both strand woven bamboo and strand woven hardwood. The bamboo starts with carefully harvested stalks that are shredded into “strands.” These strands are dried and coated with a unique adhesive compound that is free from any added formaldehyde or other harmful VOCs. The coated strands are then layered into a mold and compressed into long railroad tie shaped blocks, without the use of heat. These long, dense blocks are then carefully kiln dried in  akiln fueled by the waste material gathered by cutting the original bamboo. The cured block goes through several additional “drying” and conditioning steps prior to being milled into flooring planks to ensure the product is stable in climates throughout North America.

In order to create the Color Fusion dye-infused strand woven bamboo, the bamboo strands are first dyed with a unique “coloring” process using all-natural plant-based pigments. In order to ensure that there are no pigments that escape due to water runoff, the factory developed a process to re-use all the colored pigment left over from each individual production run, thus ensuring zero waste. This patented process ensures the environment surrounding the factory is unharmed and the resources of the factory are conserved.

At a time when the nation’s largest bamboo flooring importer (you hear their name associated with the sponsorship of NPR programming) has gotten into trouble for selling bamboo flooring with over twice the EPA’s limit for added formaldehyde, making their customers sick, and is notorious for “bait and switch” sales ploys, it is nice to know companies with integrity not only still exist, but can do well.
