Material Differences Between Vinyl and Linoleum
Vinyl: A non renewable manufactured man made product that is produced using petroleum, a non renewable resource. Large amounts of energy are required in its production in order to extract and process the chlorine which is a vital component of its chemical makeup and has been produced since the 1950’s
Linoleum: A renewable material that is comprised largely of linseed oil, a naturally occurring substance that is extracted from flax seeds produced since the 1800’s
