ZEA MARU is a successful example of both an intelligent and ecologically produced material. With this innovative, environmental-friendly solution for floor design, the first flooring based on polylactic acid (PLA) is presented. It was developed from natural raw material such as limestone and clay. ZEA MARU is an alternative to wood parquet flooring. It is obtained from natural resources like corn so that no valuable timber has to be processed. In addition, the new floor covering is highly efficient in connection with floor heating systems. ZEA MARU is low-emission and 100 per cent formaldehyde-free.
