Protect the earth, resilient floor in action

More and more trash is encroaching on our planet and devouring it step by step. The environment of the earth will get worse and worse, as described in the picture book “If the Earth is Eaten by Us”, if there is only the last tree on the earth, the last drop of water, and the last few breaths of fresh air … By that time, it will be the real end of the world.

On a beautiful April day in the world, the dew in the morning is shining brightly, the breeze is soaring, and it is so pleasant to feel the true meaning of the ordinary simplicity of nature. This is a picturesque earth. It is a gift to us. It needs our appreciation, and it is more eager for our care.

The earth is the home of mankind, and nature and mankind are interdependent friends. We must use natural resources reasonably and protect the environment well, so that it will always be vibrant. Environmental protection is not a topic far away from us. Protecting the earth, in fact, we can do a lot.

Earth Day is a worldwide environmental protection activity determined to awaken humanity’s awareness of protecting the earth and protecting their homes, and to promote the coordinated development of resource development and environmental protection. April 22 this year is the 49th Earth Day. The theme of this year’s Earth Day is: “Treasure Natural Resources, Care for Beautiful Land-Tell Our Earth Story”.

In an era when the world is emphasizing a low-carbon economy, people’s awareness of environmental protection has greatly improved. Low emissions, low energy consumption, and low pollution have become new keywords. Low-carbon economies have become popular. Refusal to use disposable chopsticks, “with chopsticks” quietly popular; refuse to wear fur, choose imitation fur clothing, refuse high energy consumption, pollution decoration materials, choose low energy consumption, pollution-free new materials.

Resilient flooring is a new type of environmentally friendly floor material that can be recycled. It can create a decorative effect like stone and wood without cutting down one grass, one tree, and one mountain and one stone. It has become a new low-carbon darling in the flooring industry. Protect the environment and start with resilient flooring!

An elastic floor is a floor that is deformed by an external force. When the external force is removed, it can completely recover to the shape before deformation. This kind of floor is called elastic floor. The floor has a service life of 30-50 years, has excellent abrasion resistance, stain resistance and non-slip resistance, and the flexible foot feel makes walking very comfortable. Elastic flooring is popular with users because of its superior characteristics. They are widely used in hospitals, schools, office buildings, shopping malls, transportation, industry, home furnishings, gyms and other places.

No logging needed

There is a large amount of wood consumption for flooring production in China. How to protect the ecological environment that human beings depend on and form sustainable development while satisfying people’s living needs? Elastic flooring is a green and environmentally friendly decoration material. Its main material is renewable polyvinyl chloride. There is no need to use wood in the production of flooring, which effectively reduces the felling of forest trees and protects forest vegetation.

Zero formaldehyde protects the environment

The most important criterion for judging whether the floor is environmentally friendly is the formaldehyde content. There are some flooring products on the market that promote zero formaldehyde. In fact, this is not the case. Most of them only attract attention with environmentally friendly gimmicks. Elastic flooring is a real zero formaldehyde flooring. Elastic flooring does not need glue, and it does not need to add anti-corrosion and anti-moth chemicals like wooden flooring. Not only the formaldehyde content is zero, but also non-toxic and non-radiation characteristics. The environmental protection advantage of elastic flooring is made of other materials. The floor is incomparable.

Long service life Save resources

The ordinary wooden floor has a service life of up to 10 years, and its maintenance and replacement costs are high and time-consuming. Elastic floor is composed of multiple layers of high-concentration polyvinyl chloride. It has excellent abrasion resistance, stain resistance and non-slip resistance. The service life is up to 20-30 years, which reduces the cost of floor renovation and replacement. It also saves resources.

Do you know why hospitals like to use PVC elastic flooring?

When we go to the hospital, there are some places where the floor will feel bouncing when stepping on it, the feet feel very comfortable, and they look smooth, but the friction is great, and we all wonder what this is? In fact, this is PVC floor, also known as plastic floor or elastic floor!

In fact, in many hospital engineering projects, PVC flooring will definitely be used. Many people will ask why? The first is that health care organizations have explicit regulations. For some hospitals, PVC floors must be used. The second is the environment. The requirements of any hospital for the environment are harsh, and most ordinary floors cannot meet the requirements of the hospital for the ground environment. The various characteristics of pvc flooring make it stand out from other floorings and be designated as a hospital-specific flooring.

PVC floor refers to the floor made of polyvinyl chloride. Specifically, it uses polyvinyl chloride and its copolymerized resin as the main raw materials, and adds fillers, plasticizers, stabilizers, colorants and other auxiliary materials, and applies the coating process or calendering, extrusion or extrusion on a continuous sheet-like substrate. Crafted.

(1) Structurally, there are mainly two types of composite body and homogeneous body type, and the other is semi-homogeneous body type; the so-called composite PVC floor means that it has a multi-layer structure, which usually consists of 4 to 5 layers. The structure is laminated, and generally has a wear-resistant layer (including UV treatment), a printed film layer, a glass fiber layer, an elastic foam layer, and a base layer. The so-called homogeneous PVC floor means that it is homogeneous from top to bottom, that is, from the surface to the bottom, from the top to the bottom, the same color.

  • It is divided into coil floor and sheet floor in terms of shape; the so-called coil floor is a floor with a soft texture, one roll and one roll. Generally, its width is 1.5 meters, 1.83 meters, 2 meters, 3 meters, 4 meters, 5 meters, etc., each roll length is 7.5 meters, 15 meters, 20 meters, 25 meters, etc., with a total thickness of 1.6mm-3.2mm (for commercial floors only, sports floors can be thicker up to 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, etc. ). There are many specifications for sheet flooring, which are mainly divided into strips and squares.

Let me untie the mystery of it for everyone!

    1.Security

The PVC floor is made of PVC material used for making baby bottles and medical infusion sets, without any toxic substances, “0” formaldehyde. At the same time, whether it is foaming process or other process PVC floor, its elasticity is very good, which can effectively prevent all kinds of harmful accidents!

    2.Antibacterial

    In the production of PVC flooring, antibacterial ingredients will be added. Just like the “Golden Elephant” brand floor, when the PVC raw materials are melted and merged, special antibacterial ingredients are added, and the outside of the floor will be closed and isolated. Air, using seamless welding splicing during the construction splicing process can effectively inhibit more than 90% of bacteria such as E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, pneumococcus, and subtilis.

    3.Slip resistance

    PVC flooring is often anti-slip in the production process. For example, many medical series of “Golden Elephant” will have abrasion resistant layer and UV treatment to increase the floor friction coefficient and make the floor stained with water. Beautiful appearance, and the floor surface will not be easily worn away!

    4.Flame retardant

PVC flooring will add flame retardant ingredients when the raw materials are fused to enhance the flame retardancy of the floor. Once accidental safety occurs, it can greatly ensure the safety of patients and visitors.

5.Sound absorption

    The raw material for the production of PVC floor itself is processed through several processes, and the floor structure will travel a “honeycomb” structure, which can effectively absorb more than 50% of the noise in the environment, and it has a good sound insulation effect.

    6.Insulation performance

PVC raw material pvc floor will be specially treated before casting, including the treatment of the floor surface can effectively organize heat conduction, so as to play a role in heat insulation.

    7.Rich colors and strong creativity

    Flooring is an important part of the hospital environment. The color of PVC floor is rich, and the color combination can be freely combined. At the same time, the stitchability of PVC flooring can be matched to make patterns according to design and color. Through the design and matching of the graphics and colors of the PVC floor, it is possible to create a pattern of visual treatment effects and a healthy and optimistic mental hint. This is not possible with many other ground materials. PVC flooring makes floor space with infinite possibilities!
