Thermally Treated Pine
Pine trees make up 1/6 of the forests of Ukraine and neighboring countries. Pine wood has a slightly pink heartwood that turns brown-red over time, and wide sapwood with the color varying from yellowish to pink. The wood features distinct annual growth rings and numerous resin channels. The wood is of average density, rather hard, decay-resistant and easy to process. Pine is widely used: for example, in construction, furniture, railroad transport, and packaging.
Brinell hardness scale: 2.49
First authentic wood tiles in the U.S. market.
Mosaic wood tiles are made from natural, sustainably harvested wood in Europe, fully adhering to modern aesthetic and ecological principles. For a long-lasting, moisture-resistant finish, the tiles are coated with a protective layer of oil-wax polish made in Germany by Osmo. These treatments allow Mosaic tiles to be used throughout interior spaces, from tiling walls and columns, to kitchen islands and backsplashes.
• As a design element, wood mosaic combines easily with ceramic tiles. The tiles’ mesh backing allows them to easily conform to the contours of the surface beneath.
• The Ash, Bird Cherry, and Oak varieties of Mosaic can be installed as flooring and on staircases using the standard procedure.
• Further, Mosaic tiles have earned an ASTM Class B flame spread rating. Thus, they are safe to use in virtually all commercial and residential projects.
