Non-directional tone on tone VCT providing a monolithic visual with a palette of colors ranging from sophisticated classics to fresh pop colors. As part of our innovative Continuum™ Solutions, Crown Texture harmonizes with other products across the entire Armstrong Flooring portfolio to help you execute your design intent.

With its through-color, through-pattern construction for high durability, plus abrasion and gouge resistance, Crown Texture continues to be a popular choice for a variety of commercial applications that receive a lot of foot traffic or heavy use.

MATERIAL:  A composition of polyvinyl chloride resin, plasticizers, stabilizers, fillers, and pigments.

CONSTRUCTION AND COLORS:  Color and pattern detail are dispersed uniformly throughout the thickness of the material.  Color pigments are insoluble in water and resistant to cleaning agents and light.

NOTE: Darker-colored Crown Texture patterns may be susceptible to scratch whitening.

*Testing at loads above 125 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.
