Fiberglass Mat for LVT Flooring

Fiberglass mats in LVT (luxury vinyl tile) flooring applications are key to ensure dimensional stability and prevent defects caused by dilatation or contraction.

Especially in heavy traffic applications, such as commercial buildings and offices, the fiberglass backing layer ensures durability and extends the lifetime of a luxury vinyl tile.

What is a Fiberglass Mat?

A fiberglass mat (also called glass veil or glass nonwoven) is a flat fabric composed of chopped fiberglass oriented in a random pattern and bonded together. Originally invented to replace cardboard in waterproofing membranes, fiberglass mats have long since conquered additional applications such as commercial and residential construction, energy storage and automotive. Fiberglass mat can be tailormade to fit the properties the end applications require by adjusting for instance the fiberglass (glass type, fiber sizing, fiber length, fiber diameter, fiber mixture), the binder systems, the mat thickness, and the mat density. Fiberglass mat is sold in rolls of various widths and lengths. Most of the glass fiber mats manufactured worldwide are produced on similar (but not identical) machines to those used in the paper industry.
