General Info and Benefits

Bamboo – Bambuseae

General Description
• Bamboo is cut and laminated into sheets and planks. This process involves cutting stalks into thin strips, planing them flat, boiling and drying the strips; which are then glued, pressed and finished.

Physical Properties
• Color change in bamboo is achieved by heating the bamboo. Doing so creates a reaction in the natural sugars in the material and darkens the color. Amber bamboo has been heated to achieve the caramel color.
• Janka Rating System (engineered panels) = 1690 (higher Janka rating = harder wood)

Where It Grows
• In East Asia, from 50°N latitude in Sakhalin through to Northern Australia, and west to India and the Himalayas. Also in sub-Saharan Africa, and in the Americas from the Mid-Atlantic United States south to Argentina and Chile, reaching their southernmost point at approx. 47°S latitude.
