Vinyl Composition Tile
Vinyl composition tile (VCT) is a finished flooring material used primarily in commercial and institutional applications. Modern vinyl floor tiles, sheet flooring and versions of those products sold since the early 1980’s are composed of colored polyvinyl chloride (PVC) chips formed into solid sheets of varying thicknesses (1/8″ is most common) by heat and pressure.
Vinyl flooring is a synthetic product, made of a combination of chemicals, including ethylene and chlorine. Vinyl flooring contains – of course – vinyl, as well as several additives such as felt, fiberglass and dyes.
