What is Amtico flooring?
Amtico is a type of luxury vinyl flooring. It is made from a resin which is compounded with high quality plasticisers, before being compressed under high pressure and heated. This process produces a material which is extremely durable while also being very thin. This thin, durable flooring has become very popular thanks to its style and versatility.
Is Amtico flooring versatile?
Amtico can replicate the look of natural wood flooring and even stone tile flooring. This is done by using printed, patterned films which are placed between protective layers and glued to the core of the flooring.
Is Amtico flooring durable?
Because the printed film in Amtico tiles is beneath a protective layer the pattern won’t wear off as it can in high traffic areas like hallways or kitchens. It is also highly scratch resistant.
Although Amtico flooring is thin, it is incredibly durable. It is protected by a super tough urethane coating, which protects the printed film design from being scratched or wearing while also making Amtico flooring very easy to clean. In fact, Amtico flooring has a permanently polished appearance so your floors will never look dull and dated.
Can I mix designs of Amtico tiles?
Because all Amtico tiles are the same thickness, it is easy to mix different tile colours and patterns to create your own design using the stone, glass, wood and metal appearances to put your own stamp on your flooring. There are numerous different patterns of Amtico tiles
