Vinyl composition tile (VCT)

Vinyl composition tile (VCT) is a finished flooring material used primarily in commercial and institutional applications.  Vinyl tiles are composed of colored vinyl chips formed into solid sheets of varying thicknesses (1/8” is most common) by heat and pressure and cut into 12” squares. Tiles are applied to a smooth, leveled sub-floor using a specially formulated vinyl adhesive that remains tacky but does not completely dry. Tiles are typically waxed and buffed using special materials and equipment.

Vinyl tile is favored over other kinds of flooring materials in high-traffic areas because of its low cost, durability, and ease of maintenance. Vinyl tiles have high resilience to abrasion and impact damage and can be repeatedly refinished with chemical strippers and mechanical buffing equipment. If properly installed, tiles can be easily removed and replaced when damaged. Tiles are available in a variety of colors from several major flooring manufacturers. Some manufacturers have created vinyl tiles that very closely resemble wood, stone, terrazzo, and concrete. Tiles can easily be cut and assembled into colorful and decorative patterns.

Marmoleum Composition Tile

MCT is made to last. In fact, it has double the service life of its vinyl counterpart. It’s at least 10 times more dent-resistant than vinyl, and its performance is enhanced by time: exposure to air hardens it, so it actually becomes more durable with age.

Vinyl composition tile shrinks over time, leaving gaps that can harbor dirt and bacteria, but MCT retains its shape, and it can be heat-welded so that seams are sealed and waterproof. If MCT gets scratched, dented or burned, it can be repaired. MCT also has better stain resistance than VCT, which is made with fillers that readily absorb stains.

MCT comes pre-finished with TopShield, a tough protective coating that preserves the floor’s appearance and lowers cleaning costs. The factory-applied finish has two layers, and the bottom one is cured with UV light to be very hard. VCT, by contrast, requires on-site application of several coats of finish after installation, and it must be stripped and re-finished regularly throughout its life.

MCT is a pleasure to live with. It’s easy on the legs, and quieter underfoot than VCT
