GreenVinyl Program

The Importance of Being Green

As an environmentally-conscious manufacturer, Lonseal provides the most functional, beautiful, sustainable, and high-performance products available.

Lonseal® has been distributing resilient sheet vinyl in the United States since 1972. Our flooring is among the most visually striking and distinctive in the market. Lonseal has a number of eco-friendly features such as a pre-applied urethane finish, Topseal. This finish reduces maintenance efforts. It also adds durability and product longevity that far exceeds most other flooring options.

The GreenAir® Collection is Lonseal’s suite of low VOC and FloorScore® certified resilient vinyl products which support Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). Along with the exciting development of low VOC vinyl flooring, Lonseal is continuously exploring new methods and technologies to minimize impact on the environment.

Among Lonseal’s GreenVinyl® features:

  • Lonseal’s interior flooring products contribute towards LEEDv4/4.1 Building Product Disclosure and Optimization: Environmental Product Declarations (Option 1). This qualifies our materials and sources with industry-wide EPD. Lonseal’s interior flooring products also contribute towards Sourcing of Raw Materials (Option 2), which means our products have post-industrial recycled content that ranges from 10-20%. All of our interior flooring products and our adhesive products have the Indoor Environmental Quality Credit. This credit shows that we met the General Emissions Evaluation and VOC content requirements.
  • Lonseal obtains its flooring product from a facility that has certifications from the ISO (International Organization for Standardization): ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems and ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems. ISO is a rigorous external third-party verification process that ensures Lonseal’s compliance to its own internal standards and to ever-changing environmental laws and regulations.
  • The GreenAir® Collection features products that are low VOC-emitting.
  • Our GreenMedic® is formulated to inhibit the growth of bacteria that may affect the flooring.  Please note that properties do not protect users or others against bacteria, viruses, germs, and other disease organisms.
    We have FloorScore® certification from the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI) and Scientific Certification Systems which independently test and certify flooring products for compliance with indoor air quality emission requirements.
  • Lonseal is a member of and meets the standards for the Collaborative for High-Performance Schools (CHPS). CHPS is a green building rating program specially designed for schools.

While vinyl manufacturers have made great progress in recent years, Lonseal is never satisfied with the status quo. We are always striving to raise the green bar with ever-more eco-friendly products with the development of our GreenVinyl® formulations.

We have also greatly increased our use of recycled pre-consumer (post-industrial) content. Lonseal products have up to 20% recycled product while our Loneco® features up to 50% recycled content. We have also introduced a range of products with Topseal, a UV-cured, factory-applied, urethane-finish. Due to their low-maintenance and matte finish, products with Topseal reduces chemicals from finishes and strippers. Another Lonseal benefit to the environment.

There will always be more to come. Lonseal continues to explore new production technologies and formulation methods in order to create the most eco-friendly flooring options for commercial industries.
