This Bamboo Panel Dark Caramel has a unique look and a dark caramel colour. The Bamboo Panel Dark Caramel is an eco-friendly and sustainable building material. These panels are constructed from 3 layers and available in different thicknesses.
Panels made from Guadua bamboo are mainly suitable as wall panels. Table tops and furniture can also be made from these panels, but their rustic look makes them more difficult to work with than our other bamboo panels.
WORKING WITH BAMBOO PANELS
A Bamboo Panel Caramel is an eco-friendly and sustainable building material. Moreover, bamboo panel material has a beautiful natural look. It can be processed and treated with the same tools, glues, lacquers and oils used for wooden panels.
The inner layers of solid bamboo panels consist of several bamboo strips, so small gaps may sometimes be visible. This is done to optimise the stability of the panels. These gaps can be filled when finishing the board.
Semi-finished and finished products of the Dark Caramel bamboo panel can be glued with a waterproof D3 glue for interior applications.
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANINGThe color of untreated pressed bamboo changes under the influence of UV radiation. The caramel color can therefore become slightly lighter over time. We recommend to treat the Bamboo Slab Caramel with our Bamboo Topcoat. This is a specially developed bamboo lacquer that provides optimal protection against wear, stains and discoloration. Bamboo Topcoat is water-based. It gives no color difference, but a beautiful silky shine. If you use furniture oil, apply it thinly. Bamboo has a dense surface and is less likely to absorb oil. Applying oil too thickly can lead to gloss differences and long drying times. Our boards are not intended for long exposure to water and moisture. If you do want to use our slabs in a humid environment, such as a bathroom, we recommend treating them with our Bamboo Topcoat. The Bamboo Slab Caramel should never be in direct contact with water.
The lifespan of our panels is based on use in a non-humid environment.

Bamboo & Environment
The use of bamboo greatly reduces the greenhouse effect and climate change. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent species of hardwood. This is due to its high growth rate and photosynthesis. Climate change has been an issue for several years, which is why bamboo could be included as a certified hardwood. Bamboo is also suitable for biomass production because it gives the second highest biomass on earth.
Bamboo & Cracks
A natural characteristic of bamboo is that cracks may appear vertically, this cannot be prevented. These are caused by differences in climate and humidity.
If you treat the bamboo poles with an oil or lacquer, the number of cracks will be less than if you do not apply a protective layer. But unfortunately this cannot be prevented 100%. The cracks can expand and shrink depending on the climate.
Protect the forest: build with bamboo
Every year more than 13 million hectares of forest are cut down.That's 1140 soccer fields every hour. Of course forests are planted, but the annual net loss of forest is over 7 million hectares, which is more than twice the area of Belgium. If those forests were not cut down, up to a quarter less CO2 would be released into the air.
