Mafi prides themselves on creating wood floors that are chemical free, structurally stable, and that highlight the natural beauty of the wood. Their planks are made using purely, wood, white glue and natural oils. Their floors are formaldehyde-free with no VOCs and are finished with natural linseed-based oils that penetrate deeply into the wood. Natural colors are achieved through the use of natural, white and grey oils. The use of oils enhances the color of the wood while still preserving the natural look of the wood.
The production of Mafi floors takes place in Austria. The set high standards for the quality of their materials and source their wood from only sustainably managed forests. Their 3-layer system results in a highly stable floor:
“ The 3-layer layer symmetrical construction consists of the top and back layers from the same wood in the same thermo treatment. The result is an equally strong counter-move, which greatly reduces the movement of the wood (swelling and shrinkage behaviour). The middle layer consists of an Austrian Pine cross-glued at 90°, which ensures extra stability. The softwood provides for a certain degree of flexibility, which reduces tension in the plank.”
