When we look closely, we will find that these floors will have some differences in appearance and quality. But why do most people still prefer virgin material flooring? How do we know whether the flooring on the market is made of virgin materials?


1. Why do people prefer virgin material flooring?

Floors made of pure natural stone powder and resin have a delicate appearance of the rigid core layer. After time of oxidation, they generally do not continue to be white, but become beige. If you find a rigid core layer that is always pure white in the market, there is a high probability that other ingredients have been added to the raw materials.

The floor rigid core made of virgin materials is recyclable, and almost no formaldehyde is produced during use. It can be said that it is very healthy and very safe. However, if the floor made of recycled materials , the appearance of the rigid core layer will be a little darker, and the amount of formaldehyde generated during use is much greater than that of floors made of virgin  materials.

Therefore, users want to choose safe and healthy floors, because it is closely related to our daily life.
