What does the term "resilient" mean?

    Vinyl flooring is also called "resilient" flooring because it characteristically "bounces back" from the weight of objects that compress its surface.


What are the advantages of heat weld vs. chemical weld?

    Typically, heat welded seams are only required in areas where there may be excessive surface moisture or to create a bacteria-impervious seam, as needed in surgical areas or laboratories. Chemical welds are most frequently specified and are most attractive on both smooth and heavily embossed products.


What is the difference between an impact load and a static load?

    Impact loads are momentary indentations like those produced from walking traffic. Static loads are any loads remaining in a stationary position for long periods of time.
