PVC floors are on one hand popular for several reasons: they are cheap, easy to maintain and available in every (imitation) look you want. On the other hand, PVC has a bad reputation for its use of plasticizers.
Substantial concerns have been expressed over the safety of some plasticizers, especially because some of them can cause cancerous tumors, birth defects, and other developmental disorders. Therefore this manufacturer has developed a “green” kind of PVC, with biobased ingredients, which are strictly secret.
To avoid toxic emissions from glue, these tiles have a magnetic backing, with an underlayment of a metal foil, allowing the floor to be easily removed.
