How Vinyl is Made

Vinyl is made up of different layers.
The top layer is clear vinyl which protects the flooring from damage. The thickness and quality of this layer determines the quality of the vinyl. The better the quality the longer the vinyl will continue looking good and wearing well. Underneath is a layer for the printed vinyl design, which is then fixed onto a backing.

Most vinyl tile will come either in the 'glueless' form, with adhesive tabs or spray adhesive, or in the peel 'n' stick self-adhesive form which also does not need glue.

Sheet vinyl floorings are produced via two manufacturing processes;

This method of construction involves forcing coloured vinyl granules onto a backing sheet where they are bonded together under heat and pressure.

This is the cheaper and more commonly used method of manufacture, which offers limitless possibilities for pattern and design. 
A thin layer of liquid vinyl is rolled and heated to form a tough sheet, this is then bonded to a felt backing. On top, a thin layer of vinyl coating is printed with the decorative pattern. A top skin, or �wear-layer of clear vinyl is then added to the surface to protect the printed surface.

Most vinyl sheet is made with a felt backing but some have a fiberglass backing, resulting in a more cushioning and usually more expensive. The felt backing may vary in thickness.
A thin layer creates Unbacked Vinyl.
A thick layer creates Backed Vinyl, which is warmer and softer to walk on.
