Intrinsic Black goes through a completely unique preparation that both chemically treats the oak layer allowing the black colour to go through the complete thickness of the oak layer unlike a stain.

Oak is a slow growing and beautiful natural resource. By using a 3mm top layer of European Oak instead of solid board the valuable oak species that is used stretches three times further. The engineered substrate is made from fast growing plantation timbers and provides a solid and incredibly stable base for the board. The oak forests are selectively felled and allowed to regenerate naturally.
Timber is a natural product. Colour will vary from printed versions and samples. Boards will vary across every floor. It is this variation that gives timber its natural beauty and appeal.
