Listone Giordano Finishes

Listone Giordano® Classica is available with the following finishes.

XPLUS2

Acrylic, U.V. cured, 100% dry residue (solvent free) varnish are applied; these varnishes are specifically designed to obtain the best results in terms of resistance to wear (more than 30.000 Taber rotations – test performed by CS10 grindstone, abrasion until the wood is exposed), elasticity of the varnish, adherence to the wood and transparency. XPlus22 finish has a smooth surface, sleek satin appearance with a fully compact pore and a surface reflectance of approximately 18 gloss.

NATURPLUS 2

Acrylic, U.V. cured, 100% dry residue (solvent free) varnishes are applied; these varnishes are specifically designed to obtain excellent results in terms of resistance to surface abrasion (more than 10.000 Taber rotations – test performed by CS10 grindstone, abrasion until the wood is exposed), elasticity of the varnish, adherence to the wood and transparency.

NaturPlus2 finish is only available with a brushed finish: a special treatment is performed on the wood’s surface before the varnish is applied in order to accentuate the appearance of the wood’s natural pores and fibres. The surface reflectance of the NaturPlus2 finish has a value of approximately 7 gloss.

NATURPLUS2 MATT

Solvent-free varnish coating, which emphasizes the wood’s grain and authenticity and highlights the natural matt feature. The finish features the anti-bacterial Crystalcare technology.

MATTPLUS

Solvent-free varnish coating similar to an untreated surface in appearance and colour. This finish features the anti-bacterial Crystalcare technology.

INVISIBLE TOUCH

Water-based finish, has the characteristic of protecting the wood whilst maintaining the typical appearance and colour of an untreated hardwood floor.

The specific application technique open pore allows the varnish offering a natural appearance, both visual and tactile.

OLEONATURE

Air-dried natural oils-based finish. The oils-based finish incorporates colour pigments in some products such as Oak “Michelangelo”. Before finishing is applied, some wood species undergo a brushing treatment, to remove the soft parts, highlighting the wood pores and fibres. Thanks to the industrially applied final protective coating, the Oleonature finish ensures easy maintenance compared to other oil finishes and better resistance against household liquids’ penetration.

Products with natural oil finishing tend to get a yellowish colour tone, should these products be kept, for instance, in the boxes for a longtime or not being exposed to light and air. It’s an utterly natural and transitory phenomenon.

This effect is reversible within a few days and the wood can restore its original appearance, once the boards are exposed to air and direct sunlight whilst in an environment with artificial light it may take up to few weeks.

Listone Giordano® Classica Oak is also available in the Pre-sanded version with a surface ready to be finished on site after the installation.

Wood is a natural material, therefore colour tone and absorption of the finish may vary from one board to the other, or even in the same board according to the variation of its fibre. These colour tone variation is visible even after the application of colour pigments proving the authenticity and the uniqueness of each board. All the above mentioned finishing are complying with antibacterial Crystalcare technology.

OLEOMAT – For Graphit

LG Graphit has given a new look to the material texture thanks to a special industrial process that require some manual interventions. Due to the Graphite pigment which is a powder base, the application of a protective finishing layer of opaque oil and invisible touch is required. This overall treatment, which involves several manual steps, significantly affects the chromatic effect of the surface enhanced by greater depth of pigment and at the same time the naturalness and transparency of the grain. A colour palette ranging from grey to more intense shades of black has demonstrated optimal resistance to the physiological process of colour oxidization once exposed to UV Light due to the OLEOMAT custom combination.
