Multi-layering is one of the biggest selling points of vinyl flooring, but how exactly is it made? Vinyl flooring, whilst being affordable, a strong resister and gorgeous flooring, a lot goes into the manufacturing. Carpet Corner are flooring specialists, and we want to ensure that you know everything possible about your flooring before purchasing.
How is it made?
Vinyl Flooring is predominately made up of PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride), used to make the vinyl sheet. This is the material that makes the flooring water-proof and ultimately a lot more durable. To do this, the vinyl is made into a mixture. The mixture is then spread across the planks and heat compressed.
The backing layer is basically your flooring canvas and ensures a much more effective installation. Backing Layers are paired with inter-core layers, with the intention of adding bulk and thickness to the flooring.
After this, the print layer is applied, the layer in which the visual layer will be put on top of. By using Rotogravure Printing, you are able to achieve the realistic natural appearance you desire.
Without a protective layer, this design will easily fade, which is where the protective layer comes in. A Clear Wear Layer is the final piece to the puzzle. This final layers purpose is to protect the print layer and add a sparkling finish. After this the layers are all laminated together, using heat and pressure, keeping it in place.
