Vinyl composition tile is the most popular resilient flooring today for commercial applications. These 12” x 12” tiles come in a variety of colors and grades. They are easy to install and are cost effective. VCT offers good dimensional stability, durability, impact resistance, UV light stability and heat stability.Approximately 60 – 70% limestone/clay/talc mixture, 15 – 20% binder (filler), 10% vinyl (resin), 5% fiberglass, 3 – 5% plasticizer and 1 – 5% pigment. VCT holds all types and brands of floor finish beautifully due to its porous nature.
Vinyl composition tile (VCT) is one of the most common types of hard surface floorings cleaning professionals will encounter. It is durable, relatively easy to clean, and inexpensive when compared to most other floor types. However, when working with a new VCT floor, maximizing the floor’s benefits will depend on how well it is cared for from the very start.
To keep VCT floors looking their best from the start, helping to save time, energy, costs, and protect the environment all at the same time.
The first thing to do is wait 3 to 4 days to allow the adhesives used to secure the floor ample time to thoroughly dry and harden.
We then recommend that have your floor Machine scrubbed to remove installation soils and any protective coatings the manufacturer may have applied.
VCT floors should be sealed and finished to protect the floor. The number of coats of floor finish depends on such factors as the customer’s expectations, traffic conditions, budget, industry, or whether you want your floor to be burnished or buffed on a regular basis; this will also help determine the type of floor finish required.
