SURFACE PROCESSING

All surface processing is done, order by order, entirely by hand. As a consequence each floor may have features that differ to a greater or lesser extent from the samples that were inspected or in case of requests for subsequent completion.

PRELEVIGATO


PRE-SMOOTHED

Fine smoothing done with professional equipment for a particularly smooth surface (this cannot be done on colors).

Beveled on 4 sides.

SPAZZOLATO


BRUSHED

Processed with a set of brushes that remove the most tender part of the grain, leaving the harder fiber intact. With this process we obtain a particularly natural and modern effect.

Beveled on 4 sides.

PIALLATOaMANO


HAND PLANED Expert craftsmen use traditional blade planers to hand plane the floor just as was done in the old days. Planing makes the floor extremely soft to the touch and to the eye, giving the sensation of stepping back in time. Beveled on 4 sides.

ROUNDED AND HAND PLANED

Hand planing combines with manual rounding of the long sides to give the floor a pleasant “wave” effect.

 

CONSUMATO


AGED

This process consists in the hand smoothing the surface with a random arrangement of “hollows” that enhance the feeling of Aged. The hand smoothed bevel on all 4 sides looks rounded and uneven. This process gives a particularly smooth and velvety surface.

SABBIATO


SANDBLASTED An exclusive Mardegan Legno process done entirely by hand. Slow sandblasting removes the most tender part of the fiber from the wood, creating a surface that appears to be worn out by time and enhancing the natural sensation typical of the wood species. Beveled on 4 sides.

ROUNDED AND SANDBLASTED

The same Sandblasted process with the addition of rounding on the long sides, giving more emphasis to the format and creating a floor with a “wave” effect.

 

SEGATO


SAWN Special three-dimension processing leaves signs in relief of the sawing and the drying processes on the exposed face of the wood. These are then chamfered and softened by hand smoothing. In this process the noble part is 7.2 mm nominal. Beveled on 4 sides.

SAWN AND SANDBLASTED

It is the same working process of the sawn effect with in addition the sandblasted process. The final result is a lived flooring that looks also very natural.

SABBIATO


HAND PLANED SOFT AND SANDBLASTED

Very soft hand planned effect possible to obtain only on big dimension boards. The final result is then enriched and exalted by the sandblasted process made on top of the surface.


HAND SCULPTED

The hand-crafted work made by skilled wood carvers is conbined with the tenderness of the brushed surface process. The final result is a new hand planed effect on a flooring that show a different worn style.

 

TREATMENT

TRATT_naturale


PROFESSIONAL “NATURAL EFFECT” PAINTING

Done ​​exclusively using the highest quality and most durable professional paints, free of formaldehyde and other toxic or harmful substances. This type of finish is used both for natural and for colored finishes and is particularly appreciated for its simplicity of maintenance and excellent resistance to dirt and wear (for maintenance go to the dedicated section of the catalogue page 170-171).

 

There is also the coating class Cfl-s1 (price on request).

“HARDWAX” OIL7WAX TREATMENT

Done manually by applying several coats of a product consisting of a special combination of oils and waxes free of formaldehyde or other toxic or harmful substances. This finish (reserved exclusively to the Loire Castles Collection, Harmony & Nature and Antichi Sapori), gives the floor a special “lived” effect, offers good resistance to wear. This finish requires a periodic “nutritional” maintenance (according to the use the floor sustains) to keep the floor protected over time. This treatment is also more sensitive compared to the paint to stains but at the same time is more easily restored to its original condition.

COLORS AND FINISHES

Mardegan Legno offers a wide range of colors by manually applying the various color tones to the single planks or parquet patterns. All passages, including finishing, are done by hand using spray paints or brushes and are left to dry naturally. Color tones and finishes can also vary from “batch to batch”, just as with surface processing, both because of the manual way the colors and finishes are made and because of the different reactions the hues themselves can have with the different properties of the wood species being used. It is also important to emphasize that subsequent exposure to air and light causes color oxidation processes. In some cases this will reduce initial color differences which are, in any case, to be considered typical for all wood species. Samples and materials exhibited and examined in showrooms, exhibitions and stands, are always to be considered, given what was stated above, as an indication and never binding.
