Protective wear layer:
and other high-performance wear
layers make the product easy to
clean and resist scratches and
scuffs. Enhanced urethane offers the
maximum amount of protection and is
above regular urethane.
Less expensive vinyl no-wax tile does not have this protective wear layer.
B) Protective clear film layer: This film adds durability and helps protects against rips, tears and gouges.
C) Printed design layer: On this layer, a rotogravure printing process creates the myriad of designs available in vinyl tile. The visuals range from very realistic interpretations of natural materials to original and unique patterns.
D) Vinyl tile backing: This bottom-most layer adds structural strength and durability. Generally the thicker the backing, the more durable the product.
