Man-made flooring solutions have only come into their own in the modern era, the late 20th and 21st century. The first artificial floor tiles were actually invented in the late 19th century and made of rubber, but they were found to be very susceptible to staining, while exposure to cleaning solvents and atmospheric chemicals meant that they deteriorated relatively quickly. However, since these innovative tiles were also very durable, easy to install and maintain, and efficient in deadening sound, more research into alternative solutions was pursued, resulting ultimately in the discovery of plasticised polyvinyl chloride, more commonly known as PVC.
PVC-based floorings, generically known as vinyls, were developed in the middle of the 20th century and rapidly gained in popularity, as they offered an economical, attractive, yet highly resilient solution to the problem of flooring in a modern home. As the design and technology of vinyl flooring advanced, it was seen that these benefits could extend into the workspace, and large scale facilities like hospitals, factories and retail storage areas began to invest.
Further technological developments mean that today's luxury vinyl flooring (an industry term rather than a regulated standard) generally refers to vinyl that realistically reproduces the surface appearance of natural materials such as wood and stone. Such vinyls incorporate an additional layer of protective material in order to improve the overall performance and wear factors of the tile. This extra layer is usually composed of a thick artificial film covered with an ultra-violet heat-cured urethane, which makes the surface resistant to scratches, scuffs and stains.
