Why Sheet Vinyl Flooring?
Residential sheet vinyl flooring is made up of layers, starting with a fiberglass sheet carrier which is initially coated on both sides with PVC. Graphic designs are then applied to the top surface and then protected with a CLEAR coating of PVC. This is known as the WEARCOAT.
The decorative layer is what makes the Vinyl so versatile. It can be made to look like almost any material. Chemical embossing creates the texture.
3D and very complex designs are all possible today. A middle layer of foam adds comfort and quietness under foot.
The smooth, tough surface of the upper wear layer prevents the build-up of dirt and prevents microbes from breeding in areas that need to be kept sterile, such as hospitals and clinics. The final layer is a coat of clear Vinyl called the Wear Layer, and that’s what protects the design.
Flexible PVC flooring is inexpensive and used in a variety of buildings covering the home, hospitals, offices, schools, etc.
PVC flooring is the most economical solution due to its low maintenance requirements.
These are multi layer products which have a wealth of expressive patterns with unlimited design possibilities, reinforced to reduce the cost of maintenance. This allows vinyl flooring to capture the look and feel of any natural flooring material with the added benefits only found in vinyl flooring.
Homogeneous Vinyl is multipurpose sheet flooring suitable for normal to heavy traffic areas. The main benefit is its non directional pattern and polyurethane surface treatment. Homogenous means the colour and the pattern run throughout the thickness so it maintains its good look for life.
