More about PlybooFit

Plyboo® bamboo flooring, plywood, and veneers are now available SoyBond™. 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.

The Soybond process takes a lot of complications out of manufacturing and in the end uses a formaldehyde free adhesive that’s more natural. The end result is naturally formaldehyde free bamboo flooring and plywood, not to mention, yet another innovation for the Plyboo brand.

Plyboo bamboo plyboard and bamboo floors that are Soybond manufactured will have the SoyBond logo shown above.
