Aquaflex Begins Offering First Resilient Flooring Line
Aquaflex is proud to announce that after 6 months of development, it will be offering its first Resilient Flooring line.
Aquaflex’s first patent, granted in 2015, described those elements that best contribute to waterproof adhesive bond. Yet, the industry didn’t listen. In a reverse of industry-standards, we created flooring to work with our adhesive.
While the rest of the industry designs the flooring first for aesthetics, then shops a private-label solution for an adhesive bond. Aquaflex’s line of pure virgin vinyl LVT, has a laminate backing composition designed to work with maximum waterproof bonding characteristics as described in our US patent No 9,068,103.
Aquaflex Resilient Flooring is TRULY “designed” waterproof.
