Manufacturers of vinyl flooring often form these floors in intense heat conditions. In these conditions, they melt small vinyl chips together under pressure. This results in the formation of a solid sheet of vinyl. Depending on the requirements of the clients, the suppliers will cut these sheets in any manner required. After cutting these sheets or planks, the suppliers will heat weld these sections together to form a covering. As mentioned earlier, vinyl planks usually feature a solid PVC base with an additional composite layer on the top. On occasions, the supplier might add a photographic layer as well. This layer serves to give the vinyl plank the desired look. In addition, some suppliers give their vinyl planks an additional layer on top. This helps the flooring material to provide enhanced levels of durability.
