Resilient is the name given to products like linoleum, vinyl, rubber and other non-textile flooring because of the solid nature and its’ ability to flex or “give” a little when walked on. Resilient flooring has been around for a long time. Linoleum, the oldest type of resilient has been in existence for over 150 years!
This type of flooring has advanced leaps and bounds, offering an endless array of colors and patterns. You can find styles like upscale ceramic, wood, and the intricate designs of stone and marble. Resilient comes in a full range of finishes which are embossed and printed with such precision that they look and feel like the real thing!
For protection, resilient flooring is being made with urethane including aluminum oxide particles which are the same tough topcoat used in wear layers now used for woods and laminate. This makes these new resilient floors easy to clean up and resistant to scratching.
