This patented state of the art technique provides the hardness needed to produce an extremely strong veneered flooring product with excellent indentation and scratch resistance (test results available). Patent pending No. 2011236087.
Diamacoat 18 Coat System
This "state of the art" technology utilises 19 layers of coating protection over the veneer. The first layer is a super tough Melamine Coating followed by 18 coats of Diamacoat UV Coating (Refer the picture above).

Timbernate Diamond Life Veneers timber
flooring is economically efficient and simple to maintain to look beautiful for
many years. With its Diamacoat UV coating, it offers a durable finish and is
scratch and indentation resistant. The following maintenance guidelines will
help your Timbernate Diamond Life Veneers timber flooring to look its finest
with some preventative care and common sense.
For general cleaning, use a duster, a soft bristled broom or a vacuum cleaner with
bristles down to ensure your floor is dirt, sand and grit free. The use of mats
at all entrances to your home is highly recommended to prevent excessive
amounts of these elements from entering.
When washing your floor, never use a wet mop or flood the floor with water or
any other liquid products. Excessive moisture can damage the floor boards and
will void the warranty. It is highly recommended to use a well wrung mop to mop
over the floor before using a clean towel to remove any excess cleaning water.
Do not use household detergents. It is recommended to only use warm water.
Wipe up spills immediately as water can cause your floor to cup, swell and gap.
The use of doormats and floor protectors will help to minimise the risk of
scratching to your floor.
It is your responsibility to maintain the relative humidity in the 50% to 70%
range, particularly where climate control equipment is installed. Failure to do
so will cause swelling, cupping or shrinking related problems.
Your floor must be protected from direct sunlight at all times. The use of
curtains or blinds is a must as direct sunlight will cause aging of the
materials and thus a change in colour. As UV sunlight will change the colour of
different species of timber to varying degrees, you should periodically
rearrange furniture and rugs to allow your floor to age uniformly.
Do not wax your floor. The use of wax will make the floor slippery and dull the
finish. It also makes it hard for re-screening later.
When the timber appears dull and begins to wear out, the entire floor can be buffed with a 320# grid sanding paper and re-lacquered again with normal polyurethane coating as many times as you prefer by a professional tradesman. If there are any damaged areas, the floor boards can be individually replaced by a professional tradesman.
The flooring comes with a 25 Year Residential Wear Warranty for Timbernate Diamond Life Veneers. This offer is only valid to the original purchaser and installation site from the date of purchase, stating that the top layer shall not delaminate from the HDF board under normal residential use, provided the flooring is laid and maintained according to all instructions provided with the product.
The warranty does not cover problems caused by unprofessional installation and maintenance, excessive moisture, timber colour and grain variation as a natural product, colour change in the timber due to age or from exposure to sunlight. This warranty also does not cover shrinkage, cupping or swelling of the timber.
This warranty does not apply to floors that are installed in areas such as saunas, bathrooms, areas which encounter excessive moisture or high humidity, etc.
The installer must inspect the boards before it is installed as any visible
defects after installation are not covered by the warranty.
