Vinyl Composite Tile (vct)

The first type of vinyl composition tile was originally called vinyl asbestos tile or VAT. This material is no longer manufactured in the United States because of the asbestos contained in the product.
The product is a combination of vinyl and clay fillers and is most often sold in 12 x 12 squares. Standard VCT has a relatively low quantity of Vinyl content in it and therefore has a low overall cost. The products with higher amounts of Vinyl content will be more expensive. The advantage of a higher vinyl content is greater indentation resistance, scratch resistance and wider selection of styles and colors. The largest manufacturers of VCT are Armstrong, Azrock, Congoleum, and Mannington.
