Petrol and strong acids are not harmful, provided any spillage is cleaned off immediately. Ketones, chlorinated solvents, acetone and similar solvents should not be allowed to come into contact with Polyflor vinyl flooring. However, if this should happen, the effect can be minimised by removing the spillage immediately and leaving any solvent residue to evaporate, prior to allowing any foot traffic.
Polyflor vinyl floorcoverings are suitable for use in all areas where most chemicals are used and there is only risk of accidental spillage. However, some chemicals contain very strong dyes, which, even after a short period of contact, will stain the vinyl flooring. In areas where these types of chemicals are used, it is suggested that an appropriate dark colour be selected to minimise the staining effect.
The Polyflor test for resistance to chemicals is evaluated over a 24 hour contact period at a room temperature of 21ºC, followed by rinsing with cold water.
