All three resilients come in a range of colors and textural patterns—marbleized, flecked, confetti, swirl—making them ideal camouflage for wear and tear. They are also excellent mediums for creating custom floor designs, especially since all three are available as both tiles and sheet goods (see page 76 for more). While cork always seems to maintain its essential character even when tinted, linoleum and VCT have been mimicking each other in terms of color, pattern, and use for nearly 100 years.
Vitrified Tiles are composed of quartz, silica, clay and feldspar. These materials are combined together with the process of vitrification. The tiles are manufactured by the Hydraulic press method. In this process two kinds of colour are fed into the machine resulting in a very thick layer of a double coloured design on the tile. This layer of colour and design is around 3-4mm thick. These tiles are good for high traffic areas.
Use a rubber mallet to pound them into place. To remove a tile that is going in the wrong direction after it is set, insert a stiff putty knife under the tile and work it loose. Once you have applied adhesive to an area work quickly or it will begin to set up. As you lay tile, use the chalk lines and/or straight edge to make sure you are keeping the pattern in line.
