Sympodial bamboo flooring is a type of decorative flooring. It is a high quality product that can be used widely and has a large consumer market. It has many advantages, such as its smoothness, stability, resistance to wear, sound insulation, resistance to dampness, pressure resistance, and flexibility. The bamboo floor has a soft and natural lustre, and maintains the natural gloss and grain of the bamboo culm. Bamboo flooring is exceptional and unique and very attractive. In order to meet increasing demands for wood-based products, many forests have been over-harvested in recent years. Developing non-tree wood alternatives is one means of solving the problem. Sympodial bamboos grow fast, produce a high yield and can become fully rejuvenated within a few years of cutting. Bamboo is a perfect substitute for some wood based products. Bamboo is highly suited to the production of flooring. Bamboo flooring has some excellent advantages over wood flooring, such as its high strength and size stability, and its special decorative effects, so it is popular and has a large market potential in China, Europe, Japan and North America.
