Recycled PVC flooring

Swimming pool covers, industrial roofing membranes, and tons of automobile upholstery trim scrap are landfilled every year. These materials are made of PVC plastic with polyester strands added to increase overall product rigidity and physical strength. Commingled plastics such as these are practically impossible to separate for recycling, but combined as Flexisurf they each play an important part in the material’s quality and durability. Originally conceived as a recycled resilient industrial flooring, Flexisurf is also finding its way into a variety of other applications. Flexisurf can be cut with a knife, saw, router, die, water-jet and laser. It can be applied bonded or unbonded to any flat, clean, hard and dry surface. Seams can be welded chemically or by heat to produce watertight joints.

Flexisurf will not shrink, buckle, warp or crack, and it is easy to clean and maintain. It is stain, chemical, weather, impact, corrosion, and puncture resistant. Flexisurf is treated with Vinyzene fungicide to resist mold and bacterial growth. The non-skid, resilient surface reduces noise, and it is a completely safe, non-toxic material that causes no harm to the environment during its manufacture or use. Flexisurf is also available with a factory-applied UV-cured urethane finish.
