However, with good care, hardwood flooring can last for decades much longer than engineered wood can a fact that may offset its expense (This sets engineered wood apart from laminate flooring, which only uses a photographic layer for its veneer, and bamboo flooring, which actually contains no hardwood.)
An explanation therefore could be that by means of a preferably steady decrease of hardness there not occur high peaks in the properties of the coating and therefore the coating is particularly durable  The present invention also relates to a method for coating a board of wood based material, in particular a floor,
