3、 Teak floor how to distinguish?
1. Look at the lines
The real teak floor has obvious sketch lines and oil stains, while the fake teak floor has no sketch lines or the sketch lines are shallow and scattered.
2. Touch it in person
The real teak floor feels smooth and delicate. It seems to have been soaked by oil, while the fake teak floor is not smooth.
The real teak floor releases a unique aroma. If the red teak has a large amount or even all of the exhibition halls are red teak, you can smell this kind of aroma after you walk in. The aroma is very comfortable. The fake teak floor should have aroma or pungent taste;
4. Weigh the net weight
The relative fiber density of real teak flooring is 0.67-0.73/cm3, which is lighter than that of African pear, but heavier than that of hemlock.
5. Water detection
A drop of water in the teak floor where there is no paint, the real teak floor is full of water beads, not easy to penetrate; The water on the false teak floor will permeate quickly or slowly (teak floor contains oil, oil and water are incompatible, so the real teak floor water will not be digested and absorbed into beads). When using toilet paper to wipe the water mark, you will find that the water on the real teak floor is not easy to penetrate, and the surface is oil-soluble and smooth, so the water is quickly wiped, and there is no trace. Because the water has already penetrated into the false teak floor and the surface is not smooth, the water mark can not be wiped dry, and there are paper fragments;
