How it's Made
Luxury vinyl flooring is a layered product construction. The base layer is made primarily of PVC vinyl, which offers flexibility as well as dimensional stability. The decorative PVC film is laid on top of the base layer. The wearlayer is typically a clear vinyl wearlayer and may or may not include a urethane coating that provides superior protection from everyday wear and tear.
There are many advantages to using Luxury Vinyl Tile products. They include the following:
- softer and quieter underfoot
- easy to clean and maintain
- available in a wide variety of styles, colors and sizes
- commercial and residential use
- realistic wood, tile and stone looks
- some tiles have the option of grouting for even more realism
- easier installation than ceramic or stone
- able to replace an individual tile or plank
Clearly, Luxury Vinyl is a flooring product category that offers something for everyone!
Luxury vinyl tile comes in a variety of styles, shapes and colors. The different types of styles include:
- wood looks
- decorative borders
- tile and stone looks
- grout option or no grout option
- overall patterns
An advantage to Luxury Vinyl Flooring is the ability to install modular patterns. Different tiles can be combined, different planks can be combined as well as tiles and planks can be combined.
Acclimation : The adaptation of the laminate floor to its installation environment.
Adhesive : a substance that bonds the floor to the subfloor.
Dye lot : Each time a production of material is run, different dye or color lots are created. Each manufacturing production process cannot re-create the exact same color lot or dye lot each time.
Modular patterns : Modular patterns are patterns that use different size pieces to create a new overall pattern
Plank : boards widths that are 3" in width or greater.
Resilient : These floors have some "give" or elasticity when you walk across them. This category includes linoleum, cork, rubber and specialty resilient.
Roller : Heavy tool used after installing vinyl sheet or vinyl tile to press the flooring into the adhesive and to help to remove any entrapped air.
Subflooring : A rough floor on top of which the vinyl flooring is applied.
Substrate : The surface on which the vinyl flooring will be laid. If installing over a wood substrate, an underlayment will generally be necessary. A concrete substrate will not require an underlayment but will require some floor preparation.
Vinyl : Made from a mixture of polyvinyl chloride and plasticizer, it is usually flexible and non-porous. Pigments are added for color.
Wearlayer : A layer of material applied to the top surface of vinyl flooring. The thickness of the wearlayer varies with each vinyl product collection, or series, and is generally measured in mils. The thickness of a mil is about the same as a page in a phone book. Premium wearlayers offer superior resistance to stains, scuffs and scratches. How long a vinyl floor will look new and fresh is based on the wearlayer’s performance.
