AUTHENTICS RANGE
The "Authentics" range of Imperio timber floors are intended for lovers of an authentic and rough wood look.  In order to lend the magnificent weathered look of the engineered wood planks even greater impact, Quick-Step introduced a new group as part of the sorting system that designates the quality of the planks: "character grading." The knots are even bigger and deeper. With authentic Imperio floors,  the knots and cracks are filled with a dark filling, but not completely and the brush is even deeper and more authentic so as to give the wood grain even greater emphasis and to add more texture to the design.  The vibrant character of the wood will see you bringing nature into your home!
First Caramel Oak is smoked, giving a pleasing caramel tint, all of which produces gorgeous colour differences between the planks and within the planks themselves. 
After the smoking process, the knots and cracks are given a light rub with dark brown, almost black sawdust and filler, making it look as though the cracks - a result of the 'work' performed to the wood - have gathered a coat of black grime over the centuries.  Finally, after smoking and filling, the floors are given a deep brush, that goes beyond the usual brushing.  The floor is subsequently protected with several coats of quality oil.  Oil is much finer than varnish, it is mindful of the artisanal texture of the surface and creates a more natural look.

Smoking Oakwood is a process whereby the tannic acid (tannin) inside the wood takes on a darker colour due to the effect of ammonia vapours. The longer the wood is exposed to ammonia, and the more tannin the wood holds, the darker it becomes.  As every piece of wood has a different tannin content, every plank responds differently to the treatment.

Imperio Nougat Oak Oiled floor planks stand out by the four joints that underscore the ample width and length, the distinctive "character grading", with its hand-sanded knots. the heavy brushing it has been given and the dark coloured knots and cracks.  
Imperio Nougat Oak has not been smoked, but greyed with white oil subsequently rubbed into the wood by hand to give the grey a softer and patinated charm.  This looks as though an age-old floor has been sanded down and oiled again.  In short, an eye - catcher in any  home interior.
