Diamond 10 Technology for Commercial Flooring

Performance

We’ve harnessed the brilliant properties of diamonds to create flooring that is unmatched in performance and durability. This revolutionary, patent-pending innovation uses cultured diamonds, with all the properties of real diamonds, to provide the highest scratch, stain and scuff resistance in the industry. 

The Office Nemesis vs Diamond 10® Technology

Natural Creations® with Diamond 10® Technology goes up against the office nemesis. Watch to see who wins this epic battle.


Diamonds are a Floor’s Best Friend

Diamonds are one of nature’s hardest substances. As you can see, diamonds outperform other common flooring finishes on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, which characterizes the scratch resistance of various materials.

Using cultured diamonds containing all the properties of natural diamonds, our patent-pending Diamond 10 Technology yields a product unmatched in performance and durability, offering the most scratch, stain and scuff resistance in the industry.


Durable Performance Year after Year

Competitors just can't match the scratch, stain and scuff resistance. Take a look for yourself and ask your Armstrong Flooring sales representative for a demonstration.
