The axolotl is a Mexican salamander that scientists continue to study because of their ability to regenerate limbs. As professionals in the built environment, how amazing would it be if some of our construction materials were able to regenerate?

Two of FloorworX’s flooring product ranges, namely iQ Imminent and iQ Granit, have introduced iQ Unique Self Regenerating Properties, a system that uses simple dry buffing to restore the surface’s original appearance and function. Not only can your floor continue to look the same as the day it was installed, the quality and performance can be restored to their former glory as well. This innovative feature not only highlights how technology has evolved and advanced, but also how great product design can excel when it is able to mimic nature.

To keep a vinyl floor in perfect condition, a dry or damp mop is sufficient for daily maintenance, supplemented by cleaning with a neutral detergent and a combined scrubber-cleaner on a weekly basis. Use a suitable spot cleaner as soon as marks occur and maintain the appearance and properties of your floor with a regular schedule of dry buffing as soon as wear becomes visible. For the best results, dry buff immediately after the floor has been cleaned and repeat as often as required. The more you dry-buff, the better the surface.

Revisiting classics with more flexibility and designs
The iQ range by Tarkett has a solution for every area. The flexible, hard-wearing designs can be mixed seamlessly with specialty surfaces including static control, safety and acoustic flooring. This product range offers exciting, original, classic and timeless styles that add value to the appearance of any commercial area with the added benefit of quick and easy regeneration. The acoustic properties and underfoot comfort of the iQ ranges, provide an additional level of wellbeing to every installation.

Over 300 million square metres of iQ flooring have been installed in virtually every sector, including education, healthcare, retail and offices across the globe. Besides its unique self-regenerating properties, iQ also has a number of other benefits including the following:
• 100% recyclable
• VOC below quantifiable level and phthalate free
• Great lifecycle costs
• Exclusive embossed surfaces and innovative formats
• 64 colours and designs

With over 200 different colours and designs, the iQ range is a comprehensive offering providing colour coordinated solutions suitable for every specific need and area. Acoustic, slip-resistant, static control and wet room solutions can be worked into a single design concept, with a perfect finish guaranteed including accessories and multi-colour welding rods.

The iQ range has a colour and style for every type of area or use. With a coordinated product range where each style of flooring is designed to complement another, the iQ range is a genuine multi-solution offering with ground-breaking designs that are suitable for every situation.
