We carry vintage vinyl from Spicher and Company.
When developing Vintage Vinyl, we did incredible amounts of testing to evaluate durability, flexibility, and the adhesion of inks. It's amazing the materials went through and what we achieved in the end. I still can't believe how usable our final product is. The tactile surface is designed to look distressed but also serves the same purpose as the threads on a tire. It allows water to dispel quickly and leaves high points for good traction when the floor is wet. Try it on the floor. It performs the same damp as it does when it's completely dry.
The top surface if the material has almost no adhesion. You can test the easily, just try to apply any permanent label. It won't stick! Why is this important? What is the easiest thing to clean? It's non-stick surface. Think about your Teflon pans versus cast iron. Which is easier to clean? We achieved this easy clean surface even while having a textured surface. One of the greatest features is the ability of our Vintage Vinyl to lay flat. It doesn't matter how irregular the floor is. The corners always move tight to the floor. The back surface of the floor cloths is a softer material, which grips nicely to the floor.
The inks that we use are UV resistant for 3 year. That means you probably can't see any fade from normal UV exposure across 3 years. The adhesion of our inks is also incredible. Want to test this? Fold one of your small floor cloths in half and crease it by stepping on the fold. When you unfold it, the inks are all intact. The surface is scuff resistant. It will hold up to normal scuffing from foot traffic. Keep in mind, nothing is bullet proof and anything this flexible can be cut or torn, so treat it well for years if enjoyment.
Spicher and Company offers over 700 options when you combine the patterns, their different color ways, and all of the size options.
