Manufacturing Methods

Vinyl flooring is manufactured in different ways. Inlaid vinyl is made by melting vinyl granules of various colors into patterned designs, offering a durable, thick flooring option. Liquid vinyl resin is used to construct homogeneous vinyl, and while color options are limited, it’s provides the most wear-resistant option. The most common manufacturing method is heterogeneous construction, which is done by layering image layers, making it possible to simulating various materials.  

Wear Layers

A wear layer coats vinyl flooring, helping to improve its damage resistance. The type of wear layer used determines the durability of the flooring and how resistant it is to scratches, scuffs, and dents. The least expensive option is a vinyl wear layer, which is used on entry-layer flooring. Urethane happens to be the most common type of wear layer, and it resists scratches and stains with ease. For the best durability, an enhanced urethane wear layer offers extra hardness to the flooring, resulting in a longer life.
