Vinyl sheet flooring manufactured using rotogravure construction is the most popular which involves a print
cylinder that spins around while the vinyl’s core layer passes underneath systematically printing the various colored ink dyes to create the pattern or design.
Once the print dyes are dry a clear wear layer is applied to the vinyl surface. The vinyl backing can be made of felt or fiberglass. Felt backing is less expensive than the newer fiberglass backing which offers more cushion, resilience (bounce-back) and tear-resistance.
Depending on the manufacturer, vinyl rolls are available in a variety of widths from 6 feet wide up to 13 feet 2 inches. The material is custom fitted by the installer at the jobsite. Traditional sheet vinyl is less expensive than many other hard surface options.
Some consumers may be concerned that vinyl flooring products are not durable and will not stand up. This is not the case when consumers buy quality vinyl flooring that is produced today by major manufacturers. In fact, high quality vinyl resists dents and marring, is very durable, strong and super-easy to clean and maintain. Vinyl flooring is warm underfoot and lasts for years when properly cared for.
