Heterogeneous PVC floors are produced by layer-upon-layer principle. They can be with a foamy sub layer – so called warm floor or without foamy sub layer so called compact PVC. Foamy layer serves as a sound and thermo insulator. Surface of this type of floors is designed either by printing or by surface treatment (surface texture). Resistance to friction and wear is directly proportional to thickness of the outer layer made of PVC coating over printed designs (wear layer thickness). Polyurethane final coating contributes to high hygienic standards.
Aesthetic potential of heterogeneous PVC flooring is vast. Different colours, patterns, imitations of stone, wood, metal, glass, different dimensions and panel shapes, shimmer and so on are used in heterogeneous PVC designs. This type of PVC can be combined with other flooring materials and is used in housing, commercial and industrial spaces.
