Vinyl for flooring has an intricate manufacturing process. They are made from a mixture of vinyl resin and other additives. This process allows for any design, style, color, or texture that you can possibly imagine. Varying types of vinyl are concocted by adding different chemicals to the mix, and once they are added to the vinyl resin the mixture becomes a vinyl compound, and is first in a form that looks like small pellets of plastic. These pellets can then be made into any type of vinyl flooring whether plank, tile, or traditional sheet vinyl flooring.
