Antique Gold Jubilee Engineered Hardwood by Shaw is a beautiful 3/8″ Hickory. The naturally random variation provides a distinct visual range with an extreme character.
What is engineered hardwood? Engineered hardwood has multiple layers of plywood or MDF and positions it in different directions. However, the construction of engineered hardwood is different among manufacturers. As a result, each layer is what gives it durable, high-performance quality. Consequently, the layered construction prevents the hardwood from warping and bowing in humid areas. In this case, the core is MDF. Compressed tiny wood particles or recycled sawdust are used in the construction. Also, it has an eco-friendly resin. If you take a piece of regular engineered hardwood and the same size piece of MDF core hardwood and weighed it your MDF would weigh a lot more. In other words, it weighs more because the compressed particles create a very dense product giving it superior stability. Therefore, the advantage of engineered over solid wood is that the construction allows for installation in most homes.
The veneer or top layer is what gives it that unique look. It is constructed of different wood species. The finish of the Jubilee collection is with a durable, aluminum oxide urethane coating. The aluminum oxide urethane and UV oil finish resist household scuffing on hardwood flooring like no other. Therefore, it provides the protection needed to help preserve the elegant look of your floor for many years to come.
