Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT) is commonly used in commercial applications and took the place of asbestos tiles, which were widely used in schools, hospitals, offices, and public buildings up until the 1980’s. If you have ever visited a bowling alley, hospital, grocery store, or school classroom, you have seen VCT. These tiles are composed of colored vinyl chips and fillers made of various inorganic materials. These fillers will vary depending on the manufacturer and the color of the tile; however, VCT is distinguished by the fact that almost 65% of VCT’s primary raw “filler” ingredient is limestone, a naturally abundant and non-polluting material. VCT is formed into solid sheets of varying thicknesses (1/8” is most common) by heat and pressure and cut into 12” squares. While being a very affordable option for commercial flooring, it does require waxing and buffing on a consistent basis according to the amount of traffic on the floor.
VCT is favored for high-traffic areas over other kinds of commercial flooring because of its low cost, durability, and ease of maintenance. VCT resists abrasive and high impact wear. It can be repeatedly refinished with chemical strippers and mechanical buffing equipment. If properly installed, VCT can be easily removed and replaced when damaged. Tiles are available in a variety of colors from several major flooring manufacturers. Some manufacturers have created vinyl tiles that very closely resemble wood, stone, terrazzo, and concrete. Finally, another big bonus is tiles can easily be cut and assembled into colorful and decorative patterns.
