Types of Flooring that Use Limestone in Production
For manufacturers of building materials, there are many items to consider including the appropriate materials to create a safe, stable, and usable space while also keeping costs low. Specifically, in flooring, lime can be used to offset production costs for manufacturers while improving the safety and quality of the materials. The challenge is finding the right raw materials that meet or exceed these standards while providing a low-cost solution to meet your customers’ expectations. It is important to choose products that minimize this impact.
Carmeuse limestone products are used in the manufacturing of tile and polymer-based (vinyl) flooring and carpet backing. Tile and polymer-based (vinyl) flooring systems require a unique set of mechanical properties such as stiffness, wear resistance, and strength that must stand the test of time while carpeting manufacturers must create a final product that can withstand the rigors of the home and office traffic while meeting specifications.
