Vinyl floor has a rather complex structure – it is a multi-layer “sandwich”, in which each layer has its own function. Thus, the top layer protects the floor from UV light, which destroys any paint. This is what ensures that the vinyl floor preserves its appearance for many years. Deeper is the transparent vinyl layer, which protects the floor from mechanical damage, its thickness determines the class of wear resistance of the material.
There is also a decorative layer, which is responsible for the color and texture of the floor, a reflective layer, a reinforcing layer for increased strength. Next, there is a quartz vinyl layer, which makes the floor stiff and withstands heavy loads. Quartz sand in a mixture with a polymer plasticizer creates a very strong base.
Even deeper are layers of glass fiber and polyvinyl chloride substrates. The layers of “sandwich” are combined with each other by hot pressing. This is the maximum number of layers, but depending on the class, there may be fewer.
