What is Vinyl?

Vinyl is a synthetic plastic made from ethylene (found in crude oil) and chlorine (found in regular salt). When processed, both the substances are combined to form Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) resin, or as it is commonly known as – Vinyl.


Why Vinyl Flooring?

  1. it is easy to maintain, repair and clean.
  2. it is cost effective compared to most types of flooring and is an inexpensive substitute to wood, granite & marble tiles.
  3. because of its rubber composition and texture, it is very comfortable to walk on.
  4. it is resistant to moisture and humidity (an important consideration in Singapore's climate).
  5. It is a very strong and durable plastic material, ideal for heavy usage (retail spaces, often walked corridors).
  6. Vinyl flooring is environmentally friendly and can be recycled. 57% of vinyl is made from common salt, which is a renewable natural substance, making the product friendly to nature.

Area Conversion

Square feet (ft²) to Square meter (m²) = /10.764
Square meter (m²) to Square feet (ft²) = x 10.764

1 Square feet (ft²) = 0.093 m²
1 Square meter (m²) = 10.764 ft²

Feet (ft) to Meter (m) = /3.281

Meter (m) to Feet (ft) = x 3.281

1 feet (ft) = 0.3048 m
1 meter (m) = 3.281 ft
