Novalis Innovative Flooring has been recognized for its work in environmentally friendly, sustainable product development with a Green Product Honorable Mention at Domotex asia/ChinaFloor (DACF) for the third year in a row.

“We developed a lighter weight, warmer feeling and more resilient luxury vinyl tile (LVT) by dispersing cork granules into a PVC compound,” said John Wu, president and CEO of Novalis. “This results in a whole new set of attributes and benefits for LVT that we are pioneering at Novalis.”

The base layers of the new LVT are where the cork granules are fused with the PVC compounds offering superior thermal and acoustical performance. According to Wu, Novalis will launch a cork-based LVT collection in glue-down, click and loose lay formats.
