What is vinyl flooring?
The name of the popular floor covering "vinyl" comes from the chemical term ‘polyvinyl chloride’, usually known as PVC. The technical properties of the material make it interesting for many areas of application in private and also commercial spaces. But why PVC? What properties does this floor have and what are its advantages over other floor coverings?
We would like to give you some answers to these and other questions in the following.
