Using the most primitive materials to make the best bamboo products

Everyone knows that the large-scale development of container transportation has only been around 20 years, but due to its convenient transportation and fast development speed, the initial container bottom plate was mainly made of steel, which had disadvantages such as being overweight and easy to rust. Later, it was replaced by solid wood flooring and wooden plywood.

However, currently most container floors on the market use bamboo flooring instead of wood flooring, as the wood required for containers must be high-strength clones and other wood species. However, the production cycle of this type of wood is generally about 60 years, and with continuous large-scale logging in Southeast Asian countries of origin, resources are gradually shrinking. The usage of containers is increasing year by year, and new substitutes must be found for the bottom plates used in containers. As a reliable alternative to wooden flooring, bamboo wood composite boards have been widely accepted in the market, effectively reducing the demand for wood, not only saving costs but also protecting the environment.

The bamboo and wood flooring for containers is strictly produced according to advanced technology, using high-performance waterproof resin adhesive, adding special insect and preservative approved by authoritative institutions, and passing the testing and certification of various indicators such as physical and mechanical strength and preservative content. It has the characteristics of stable performance, high strength, and large elastic modulus. It can meet the needs of various ordinary and special containers.

So besides the characteristics of wooden flooring, bamboo flooring has higher strength, greater compression resistance, and even physical properties. Its special protective film on the surface can prevent oil stains and dirt from seeping into bamboo and wood fibers, making it highly wear-resistant, waterproof, and acid resistant (laminated panel). And bamboo flooring has abundant resources, ensuring the sustainable development of the product.

After reading these advantages of bamboo flooring, I think everyone should have an answer in their minds. Bamboo flooring is more durable and of better quality than wooden flooring. Generally, bamboo flooring can be used for many years, but wooden flooring may break after more than a year. Of course, the price of bamboo flooring is slightly higher than that of wooden flooring. Many container manufacturers with high requirements almost use container bamboo flooring instead of wooden flooring, and they have long recognized the quality of bamboo flooring in their hearts. Do you now understand the importance of using bamboo flooring for container floors?
