MATERIAL: A tough, clear, unfilled polyurethane wear layer composed of polyvinyl chloride resins, plasticizers, stabilizers and processing aids on a filled vinyl backing.

PATTERN AND COLORS: The overall visuals are created by a print between the wear layer and intermediate color layer. The clear wear layer is embossed with different textures to enhance each of the printed visuals. Color pigments are insoluble in water and resistant to cleaning agents and light.

*Testing at loads above 250 psi is outside the scope of the test method. Since testing is conducted on uninstalled flooring, results do not consider the performance of the adhesive, underlayment, or subfloor. These test results are not an indicator of the installed flooring system performance.

** Using the James Machine as described in D2047 and as directed in UL 410 for floor covering materials (FCM) using a leather foot under dry conditions. The application of site-applied floor sealers, polishes and other types of finishes routinely used to maintain resilient flooring materials will change the walking surface and consequently the SCOF value.
