Armstrong Flooring Introduces Paragon™, a New Solid Hardwood with Diamond 10Ⓡ Technology

Armstrong Flooring recently introduced Paragon™ Solid Hardwood with Diamond 10® Technology, offering the timeless beauty of genuine hardwood and the ultimate in scratch resistance.

Paragon hardwood is made from 100 percent solid Appalachian wood with patent-pending Diamond 10 Technology, a flooring innovation exclusive to Armstrong Flooring, which incorporates cultured diamonds to create a powerful layer of scratch protection without clouding the beauty of the hardwood underneath.  Diamond 10 provides clear scratch protection allowing the natural allure and beauty of the wood to shine through. The flooring provides resistance to stains and dirt, and is durable to traffic and cleaning. It is manufactured in the U.S. in Beverly, West Virginia.

Paragon offers today’s most in-demand wood colors and textures. The collection features a variety of choices in both high gloss and low gloss finishes, all featuring Diamond 10 Technology. Three popular looks include Smooth Hardwood, for a timeless, consistently beautiful look; Scraped, richly textured floors, full of abundant character that are built for rugged durability; and Brushed, planks that are textured by gently removing the soft portion of the wood for a natural visual full of depth. All Paragon floors come with a lifetime limited residential warranty.

“Hardwood is the real deal; it is gorgeous and can add considerable value to a home,” said Michael Barnett, Senior Product Manager, Hardwood.  “Some hardwood is susceptible to scratching and will show wear, especially in heavily trafficked areas. We designed Paragon to stand up to everyday life in even the busiest home and still allow the natural beauty of the wood to shine through. It’s a hardwood floor that you can really live on.”

“When investing in hardwood, consumers seek peace of mind that their floor will look beautiful for the long term. For many consumers, scratch is a top factor when considering the durability of the floor,” said Barnett. “With Paragon, homeowners can enjoy the enduring beauty of hardwood floors that are built to last a lifetime.”
