Armstrong Flooring Showcases Latest Flooring Collections Featuring Ground-Breaking Diamond 10® Technology at NeoCon 2018

LANCASTER, Pa., June 4 - Armstrong Flooring continues to enhance and redefine commercial flooring with its newest collections of trend-forward designs in hard-wearing, low-maintenance resilient and hardwood floors for the built environment, including the latest innovations featuring revolutionary Diamond 10® Technology, at NeoCon Booth #7-9112.

As the largest annual show held in the Merchandise Mart for commercial interiors, NeoCon creates a platform for architects and designers to experience fresh ideas and innovations to optimize the vertical markets including corporate, healthcare, hospitality, retail, education, public spaces and government. Armstrong Flooring supports designers and specifiers to redefine the environmental experience for end-users by showcasing the latest in aesthetics, design flexibility and performance.

The Diamond 10 Technology Revolution

Diamond 10 Technology, developed by Armstrong Flooring, uses cultured diamonds to provide the highest scratch, stain and scuff resistance in the industry. With Diamond 10 Technology, designers do not have to compromise looks for maintenance. The coating is a low-maintenance, no-polish solution, which helps to keep floors looking new longer and the exceptional ease of maintenance dramatically reduces the costly disruption of operations. Armstrong Flooring has incorporated Diamond 10 Technology across its entire line, including homogenous and heterogeneous sheet vinyl, luxury vinyl tile (LVT) as well as vinyl composition tile (VCT).

  • DecorArt Rejuvenations, a new and elegant vinyl sheet collection, offers a versatile range of floor covering designs that deliver high visual impact and long-lasting performance. Dramatic new visuals with exquisite detailing, combined with Armstrong Flooring’s exclusive Diamond 10 Technology coating, take sheet vinyl to the next level of style and performance. The line merges commercial and residential aesthetics and introduces a new interpretation in coordinated design via three new patterns – Cityscape, Urban Maze and Metropolis – inspired by the textures and patterns prevalent in New York City’s famed garment district.
  • Natural Creations with Diamond 10 Technology was designed in direct response to commercial interior performance needs and design trends. The collection is available in an array of modular shapes, sizes and patterns to reflect the natural look that is increasingly popular in today’s designs. Three beautiful collections, ArborArt, EarthCuts and Mystix, are inspired by the natural beauty of wood, the colors and organic variations of stone, and the distinctive woven-like appearance of textiles.
  • Armstrong Flooring’s VCT, now with the exclusive Diamond 10 Technology coating, delivers superior scratch, stain and scuff resistance to the company’s strategic commercial account customers. For large retail chain customers, this can result in millions of dollars in savings over the life of the floor. Savings are realized in polish costs, as well as labor costs related to maintenance practices.
  • ColorArt Medintech and Medintone with Diamond 10 Technology coating is fit for the most demanding environments while offering on-trend, bold and bright colors to coordinate across the Armstrong Flooring Continuum™ Solutions portfolio. ColorArt Medintech and Medintone with Diamond 10 Technology coating 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.

As part of Continuum Solutions, these collections work seamlessly with other Armstrong Commercial Flooring products to create beautiful, coordinated spaces, allowing designers to choose the right flooring structure without compromising on vision. Continuum Solutions makes it easy to create the perfect palette — from a composition of muted neutrals to pairings of vivid hues that pop.

Natural Beauty for Homelike Interiors

Hardwood floors create warmth and visual complexity, allowing interior designers and architects to cultivate settings that feel fresh and welcoming. Many of Armstrong Flooring’s engineered wood products also can be used on walls with Class C fire rating, and collections such as the new Woodland Relics are statement makers. Woodland Relics captures the essence of reclaimed, weathered wood, as random and varied as nature itself. Every plank is uniquely crafted using hand-staining, sanding and woodworking techniques that showcase abundant textures and tones. The collection includes a varied sampling of multiple species, widths, colors and textures, all of which are mixed together in random fashion to create a highly custom look.

Armstrong Flooring offers a strengthened lineup of commercial flooring solutions that give architects and designers a mix and match opportunity to specify products that fit their client’s needs. From timeless and traditional to contemporary and fresh, neutral and harmonious to bold and dynamic, Armstrong Flooring’s design stories represent broader trends in the design world making their way to the commercial sector.For more information, visit www.armstrongflooring.com.
