Making vinyl better

How it's made

• 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.
• Eternal and Eternal de Luxe are produced in a plant certified to SA8000, one of the world’s pre-eminent social standards which aims to protect workers along each step of the supply chain.

How it performs

• We use smart material constructions and durable finishes on Eternal and Eternal de Luxe

Proven Performance

Proven 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 and Eternal de Luxe collections 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 most 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 at least 60% re-used content.
