PVC flooring: a sustainable and versatile solution for modern rooms

At a time when sustainability and environmental awareness are becoming increasingly important, PVC flooring is often at the centre of discussion. At terramondi, we recognise the benefits of PVC as a floor covering and are committed to using it in the most environmentally friendly and responsible way possible.

PVC: A material with many facets

PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, is a versatile and particularly durable material that is used in many areas of everyday life.

Its flexibility and durability make PVC an ideal material for flooring in a variety of environments: From residential spaces to industrial facilities. At terramondi, we utilise the positive properties of PVC to offer high-quality, durable and aesthetically pleasing flooring solutions.

Environmental awareness in the use of PVC

At terramondi, we are aware of the potential environmental concerns associated with the production of PVC. We therefore take particular care to use the most environmentally friendly production methods possible. In this way, we try to minimise harmful emissions during production and keep the environmental impact as low as possible

The long service life of PVC flooring is also an important factor: it amortises the demanding production process and reduces the need for frequent new purchases, which in turn significantly reduces the environmental impact.

PVC flooring: health and safety aspects

At terramondi, we attach great importance to the health and safety of our customers. Our PVC flooring therefore meets strict health and safety standards and is free from harmful plasticisers. This ensures that our products are safe for use in living and working environments while offering high quality and durability.

Can PVC flooring be recycled?

One of the biggest challenges in recycling PVC flooring is separating the PVC from other materials. In addition, the quality of the recycled material can be impaired by impurities. However, advances in recycling technology and improved separation processes are helping to overcome these challenges more and more effectively.

Efficient recycling is already possible today with the ECO variant. These sheets are made from recycled PVC and are therefore more cost-effective and environmentally friendly.
