The Hevea Core

Hevea or Rubberwood is a plantation species that yields natural latex in its harvestable lifespan. When the trees have reached an age where latex yield is no longer adequate, the trees are harvested for lumber. This process of felling and replanting occurs every 25 to 30 years.

Being a hardwood species, with similar characteristics to Oak, Hevea provides greater dimensional stability and withstands external pressures, such as changes in temperature, moisture, and humidity, better than typical softwood core products.

75% of each 3 layer plank composition is made up of renewable plantation species and 25% is from hardwood veneers. The bottom layer is plantation pine.

White Oak Wear Layers

All Elemental Advantage oak veneers come from Europe or the United States as opposed to Siberian/Russian oak used by many mills. Siberian/Russian oak will only semi-smoke due to the lack of tannin within the oak. European oak can fully smoke to a beautiful dark brown color.

Additionally, European and American oak is typically more consistent in grain & color whereas Siberian/Russian oak is susceptible to increased amounts of discoloration and unsightly mineral streaks. This is primarily due to differences in the regions and soil composition where the trees grow.

Environmental Responsibility

Elemental Advantage is both Lacey Act and CARB (California Air Resources Board) compliant. All products in the Elemental Flooring line are produced with the utmost care for our environment. From the tropical forests of South America and Southeast Asia to the deciduous forests of northern temperate regions, we engage in only selective and highly sustainable harvesting practices to ensure the continued health and prosperity of the forests we all rely on. The wood industry plays an important role in the preservation of the world's forests by providing value and jobs in forest regions. By providing an economically viable alternative to clear cutting land for agricultural use, the wood industry ensures the continued preservation of the world’s standing forests.
