Monserrate and Wood Flooring.

Angelim Pedra Species is an exotic hardwood flooring solution that is rich, amber-colored, and accentuated with an interlocking grain pattern. It has a distinctive appearance with the presence of naturally occurring crystalline compounds. As a floor, its litany of color creates a beautiful mosaic. Each floor is distinctly different from another.

                Its photosensitivity is in the medium range on the photosensitivity scale. This is the measure of how dark the floors will become as they are exposed to sunlight and oxidation. As exotic hardwood flooring ages, its natural beauty is enhanced and develops a richer and more uniform color.

                On the Janka Hardness scale, Angelim Pedra is listed as 3040. The Janka hardness test is a measurement that tests the hardness of wood to see if it is suitable for flooring. In America, this method measures the pounds-force required to embed an 11.28 mm. steel ball into a piece of wood at half the ball’s diameter. The Janka hardness test determines the ability of wood to handle denting and wear. It is also an indicator of how resistant it is to working with the wood, such as sawing and nailing. The Janka Hardness for Angelim Pedra is in accordance with ASTM D 1037-7 testing methods. Testing is not done on actual flooring. It is done on samples.
