Platinum Shield™ UV 7 coat finish with Aluminum Oxide Crystals technology Our Platinum Shield™ UV 7 coat finish with Aluminum Oxide Crystals technology provides the most durable finish available for hardwood floors. The satin (low gloss) finish seals the wood surface to ensure that each Urbanfloor wood plank shows its true color and beauty. The strength and stability of our engineered flooring make care and maintenance easy, providing enjoyment for years to come. Surface Layer The top hard wood layer measuring 1/8 inch is protected with 7 coats of UV cured, formaldehyde free, acrylic varnish and Aluminum Oxide Crystals to ensure the durability of the wear layer. Our top layer is 1/8" solid wood with a vividly aesthetically pleasing and detailed hand distressed technique with hand-scraped edge and ends. Our smooth and rich flat engineered wood flooring also has a 1/8” thick top layer with micro-bevel edge and ends. 8-Ply Cross Grain Construction There's strength in numbers. Every Urbanfloor™ hardwood floor is constructed with seven plies for optimum strength and durability. Each ply is laid cross-grain to those above and beneath it. With each ply reinforcing the next, and with the strongest resins bonding all layers together, the combined result is far stronger than a single solid piece of wood — warranted not to warp or buckle.
