More about Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT)

Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) is a flooring material formed by pressing together a plasticized vinyl base, a layer of plasticized vinyl with a printed design, and a layer of transparent vinyl into a laminated sheet. Before the sheets are cut into square tiles or rectangular planks, a polyurethane topcoat is applied to protect the surface of the floor during its use. Some LVT products may use recycled content in their construction. If post-consumer recycled PVC is among this content, heavy metals, phthalate plasticizers, and other contaminants from the post-consumer recycled PVC waste stream may be present. This CP describes an LVT flooring as was found to be most common in 2016: one which contains neither recycled content, nor orthophthalate plasticizers, but products with this content may still be available and would impact the hazard profile of a specific product. Note that individual products on the market may also incorporate antimicrobial ingredients into the protective top coat of the floor, which could bring additional hazards not captured in this CP.
