Reliable Performance

Reliable Performance

Calandered backing, consistent and dimensionally stable construction, colour fastness and unique embossing; it's a combination of these elements along with the PVC wear layer and PUR surface layer treatment that make the Eternal collection stand out from the crowd.

Quite simply, guaranteed performance over time is the significant difference. The cleaning and maintenance regime is simple and efficient, maintaining Eternal’s “as new” appearance over many years.

PUR pearl lacquering technique
The proven PUR pearl lacquering protection technique is used in the majority of our designs. The application technique for the lacquering layer assures an even amount of lacquering both on top and in the deeper areas of the embossing. This matt embossed lacquer layer ensures the highest level of chemical and scuff resistance. The use of a specially developed ‘flexible lacquer’ helps to prevent the surface from scratching and maintains the long lasting appearance.

Product construction
A transparent wear layer, ensures maximum wear resistance and maintains the integrity of the design. A non woven, fully impregnated, glass fleece layer functions as the backbone of the product. It ensures the dimensional stability and allows a lean-development approach. Adding to stability and the high quality is the optimised calandered backing, a firm but flexible and embossed layer allowing easy installation, even if coving. The backing layer, which is a substantial part of the product construction, contains 50% re-used content.

Making vinyl better

We are constantly striving to improve the environmental profile of our vinyl products through local and international initiatives. For example, we re-purpose our vinyl waste (and that of other flooring manufacturers) to make new products-such as the backing for Flotex and Westbond carpet tiles.

How it's made

•Our general purpose vinyl ranges contain approximately 50% recycled content in their backing.
•We produce all our vinyl in Europe where it meets the highest possible current and future REACH compliance standards for chemical content.
•Of all the electricity we buy, 100% comes from renewable sources. This means our vinyl production sites are part of an effective environmental management system and achieve ISO 14001 certification.

How it performs

•We use smart material constructions and durable finishes on our vinyl. A micro- embossing technology reduces the need for chemical cleaning and increases the floor's lifespan.
•Through our Back to the Floor scheme, we can collect installation off-cuts from our vinyl floors and recycle them back into Forbo products at our plant in Ripley, Derbyshire. Find out more about Back to the floor
