Laminate flooring has become a highly attractive option for any corner of your home. Not only does this trend suit a variety of decorative styles, but it also adds warmth and is surprisingly easy to maintain. In addition, its construction with strong, long-lasting materials adds an extra touch of durability. However, if you are thinking of installing it in wet areas such as the kitchen or bathroom, it is essential to consider some crucial factors.
Protection against spills and moisture is paramount to ensure that the floor maintains its optimum condition when exposed to liquids. When choosing the perfect coating for every corner of your home, it is imperative that it is water-repellent, preventing expansion and deterioration due to humidity, which guarantees its useful life.
This is where FAUS’ innovative technology, known as AQUA-0, comes into play. This revolutionary technology gives FAUS laminate flooring exceptional water resistance, withstanding up to 72 hours of continuous exposure to liquid. With FAUS Aqua-0 surface protection, FAUS laminate floors with the Jointguard® feature ensure a solid defense against water for 48 hours. If you opt for designs featuring Interplank® technology, surface water resistance is extended to 24 hours. If you are looking for additional 24-hour protection, it is essential to incorporate Clicseal joint sealant into the installation, applying it to the longitudinal and transverse anchoring system of each plank, together with flexible silicone around the perimeter of the installation*.
FAUS has developed XTREME technology specially designed for areas with higher humidity levels, such as kitchens and bathrooms. These spaces require specific characteristics to cope with wet conditions, and with XTREME technology, we have taken our performance to the next level. This innovation affects two fundamental aspects of the product:
- The joints have a water-repellent coating on their surface, repelling moisture to minimize the impact of leaks or spills.
- The backing is strengthened with polyurethane resins incorporated during manufacturing, guaranteeing twice the dimensional stability compared to other waterproof laminate floors and up to three times more than standard ones.
Our LOC joints of each piece have been impregnated with a mixture of waxes and kerosene waxes to repel moisture, preventing any possible water seepage. With FAUS, enjoy exceptional laminate flooring, even in the wettest areas of your home.
