Route 66 Infinite 12 Glue Down Vinyl Plank is a glue-down flooring. Infinite 12 Collection is a 2 mm thick vinyl that has a 8-mil wear layer. Glue-down flooring material involves the application of using an adhesive to the concrete base. The installation technique allows the flooring to have great dimensional stability. There are two types of adhesives used in gluing down flooring. Hard Set Adhesive is used for heavy loads and foot traffic. Therefore, it reduces the appearance of indents. The second adhesive is Pressure Sensitive Adhesive. It is the most used because it is more versatile and easier to replace.
So, what is a wear layer? The wear layer helps your floor last longer. The wear layer is a clear PVC film that is applied to the photographic layer of your floor. For example, if you rolled around your floor on a desk chair, the wear layer is what is protecting your floor from wearing down to the color. The wear layer adds an extra boost of durability and extends the life of your vinyl flooring. As you may have guessed the thicker the wear layer the tougher the flooring will be.

Most chemical exposure in people occurs through the air we breathe in our homes, offices, schools, and other indoor environments. These chemicals are used to manufacture and maintain building materials, as well as, interior furnishing, cleaning products, and personal care products. Studies show that many of us spend as much as 90% of our time indoors. If you are breathing poor quality air, you could be facing a higher risk level for a variety of health problems. Studies by the EPA have found that VOCs are common in indoor environments. The levels may be up to a thousand times higher than outdoors. Some may produce objectionable odors at low levels. But others may have no noticeable smell. VOCs can cause several irritants like headaches, throat irritation, and dizziness. Long-term exposure may lead to more serious illnesses.
Floor Score Certified is the most recognized indoor air quality certification standard for hard surface flooring materials, adhesives, and underlayment. A third party conducts tests and measures the risk of airborne chemicals that are referred to as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Products bearing the Floor Score Certification have met a stringent indoor air quality emissions criterion. So, what does that mean to you? It means that your family can breathe easier. Therefore, you should keep Floor Score Certification in mind when shopping for floors.
