What Difference Between Rigid Vinyl Tile and PVC Flooring?
Mar 22, 2021

The main raw materials of rigid vinyl tile and PVC flooring is the same, only the process is different, rigid vinyl tile is high-density, raw materials after extrusion molding, and then in the substrate surface and the bottom of the hot press to impose different printing layer, wear-resistant layer, embossed pattern and other process technology.

What Difference Between Rigid Vinyl Tile and PVC Flooring?

Main features of rigid vinyl tile:

(1) environmental protection without formaldehyde.              

(2) fireproof, fire grade B1, second only to stone.                  

(3) a variety of surface treatment (concave and convex pattern, hand grip pattern, pattern, mirror pattern).

(4) wear-resistant, wear-resistant grade T     

(5) moisture-proof, water does not deform, available in the kitchen, bathroom, basement, etc..   

(6) beautiful and diverse colors, seamless construction of the patchwork, easy and quick installation.

(7) anti-slip, more astringent in water, not easy to fall  

(8) silencing, walking feet feel comfortable, elastic, fall is not easy to be injured.         

(9) daily maintenance does not require waxing treatment, available towel or wet mop wipe.

What Difference Between Rigid Vinyl Tile and PVC Flooring?

Rigid vinyl tile, locking tension is strong, will not produce the phenomenon of decoupling; floor contraction performance is better, suitable for all floor heating systems, sunrooms, balconies and other paving. The floor belongs to the hard floor, pre-paving a layer of membrane or floor mats before paving, so that the feet feel more comfortable, noise and vibration damping.


Rigid vinyl tile is based on high-tech development of new environmentally friendly flooring, with zero formaldehyde, mold, moisture, fire, insects, easy installation, etc. Rigid vinyl tile substrate is extruded by the extruder combined with T-shaped mold extrusion, and then supplemented by pressure paste molding positioning technology, you can create a variety of different textures (embossed relief pattern, hand grip pattern, synchronous pattern, crystal mirror wood grain, etc.), the bottom layer can use traditional PVC Polymer material or other padding layer as a balance layer, the root has a balance of floor stress, sound damping role.


Rigid vinyl tile materials use environmentally friendly formula, does not contain heavy metals, phthalates, methanol and other harmful substances, in line with EN14372, EN649-2011, IEC62321, GB4085-83 standards. It is popular in developed countries in Europe, America and Asia Pacific markets. With its excellent stability and durability, rigid vinyl tile solves both the problem of moisture deformation and mildew of solid wood flooring and the formaldehyde problem of other decoration materials. It is available in many colors and patterns and is suitable for indoor home decoration, hotels, hospitals, shopping malls and other public places.


In the past two years, Europe and the United States, especially the United States market attention to the wood-plastic flooring is increasing day by day. Rigid vinyl tile combines the waterproof and stability of PVC stone flooring, foot and sound insulation effect compared to the PVC plastic flooring will be more comfortable.
