For 3 days, booth #5239S was home to Plyboo’s best and brightest reps. Representatives from Smith & Fong Co. and its Canadian distributor, Taproot were there to meet sustainability enthusiasts in the most anticipated tradeshow of the year.

Soybond, a proprietary manufacturing system, is the designation for Plyboo products made with soy adhesives. As of summer 2011, the full line of PlybooPure (no urea-formaldehyde) bamboo flooring and bamboo plywood, as well PlybooSport bamboo sport flooring are manufactured as SoyBond.

Plyboo bamboo plyboard and bamboo floors that are Soybond manufactured will have this logo:
