Mohawk’s Congoleum DuraCeramic resilient flooring, also known as Luxury Vinyl Tile, is growing in popularity every year. Created from carefully selected natural and synthetic materials, this flooring is a highly engineered combination of polymer materials composed of repeating structural units, which allow for increased strength and durability for the lifetime of the product.
Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) are available in a wide variety of sizes and thicknesses. The base construction varies from product to product, but the base is primarily a limestone composite material that is formed into solid sheets of varying thicknesses by heat and pressure, and cut into the desired shape, a 16” x 16” tile for example. A photographic representation on a film is applied and encapsulated under a wear surface. Depending on the thickness of the plank or tile and the wear surface thickness and technology, Luxury vinyl tile and luxury vinyl plank can be used in residential, light commercial and even full commercial applications.
Resilient flooring offers numerous benefits that other flooring categories just can’t match. One of the prime benefits of working with resilient flooring is the unlimited possibilities of style and design. Any pattern or color that you can dream of can be created with resilient flooring. Realistic natural stones and woods can be imitated, and with today’s improved technology, imitated almost exactly to what is found in nature. In addition to these natural patterns and colors, designers can create any pattern or combination of colors they feel will best meet the demands and needs of customers in the market. This flexibility of style and design can be found in no other type of flooring product.
Being an engineered floor, resilient flooring provides exceptional performance in high traffic areas. The flooring can be created with any combination of wearlayer protectants that can help minimize scratching, stains and scuffs that come with every day wear and tear. Congoleum has incorporated ingredients such as Scotchgard™ Protector, Aluminum Oxide and Silver into the wearlayer to provide greater protection against wear and keep the flooring looking its best.
Resilient flooring is moisture resistant, meaning it is the perfect product for the kitchen or bathroom where moisture is a constant issue.
Resilient flooring also absorbs sound, which provides a quieter and more peaceful living space. It is warmer underfoot so early in the morning or during the cold winter months it is a much more pleasant surface to walk on. It is also softer underfoot, so it helps protect joints when standing for prolonged periods of time.
Resilient flooring offers a floor for any budget. There is a wide range of technological advantages in this category of flooring, but the perfect fit for your home can be found at any price range, a true difference from other types of flooring.
