Armstrong Flooring’s Diamond 10 Technology Expands with the Introduction of ColorArt Medintech and Medintone with Diamond 10 Technology Coating

Homogeneous sheet flooring designed with health in mind

Lancaster, Pa., October 5, 2016 – Once again Armstrong® is re-setting the standard for inspired design and proven performance by expanding its line of products featuring Diamond 10 Technology coating with the introduction of ColorArt Medintech and Medintone Diamond 10 Technology coating. This product provides the highest scratch, stain and scuff resistance in the industry, making it a perfect solution for healthcare and educational environments.

ColorArt Medintech and Medintone with Diamond 10 Technology coating features new, on-trend bold and bright colors to coordinate across the Armstrong Flooring Continuum™ Solutions portfolio, providing solutions for unique design concepts. The true through-pattern construction resists abrasion and other wear created by heavy equipment, such as carts in healthcare spaces, and the frequent rearrangement of desks and chairs in educational settings.

Healthcare settings such as hospitals and doctors’ offices require a clean, comfortable and safe design – and that design should also contribute to patient healing and staff well-being. A 30-year track record of high performance in sterile and aseptic environments coupled with improved stain, scratch and scruff resistance, makes Medintech and Medintone it a perfect choice for healthcare. And a soft palette of colors that allow designers to create settings with a warmer, home-like ambiance that can help alleviate anxiety and promote healing. The durable flooring offers practical advantages including gouge and abrasion resistance and a surface that offers ergonomic benefits, making it easy to push, pull and roll heavy equipment of furniture.

Given the similar pace of change, today’s educational institutions also require spaces that are designed for efficiency, flexibility and long-lasting durability, from the floor up. From daycare centers to university dorm rooms, the new color offerings complement coordinating design materials, help orient visitors and create engaging learning environments. The beauty of ColorArt is its exceptional ease of maintenance, preventing and reducing costly disruptions in operations. The washable surface cleans and dries quickly using common maintenance supplies, making Medintech and Medintone a low-maintenance, optional polish solution.

ColorArt Medintech and Medintone are made from the highest quality materials and contain no Ortho-Phthalates or heavy metals. They feature low VOC emissions, FloorScore® certification and comply with LEED® credit for Indoor Air Quality. Energy is also conserved when higher-rated, light-reflective colors are selected. Additionally, the homogeneous sheet flooring is recyclable through Armstrong Flooring’s On&On™ Recycling Program on a case-by-case basis. The product lifecycle features a new 10-year commercial limited warranty.
