Raffia Stream features streaming accents over a rich contrasted base in a larger format, 12 in. x 24 in. VCT tile. The color palette includes rich bold hues, tranquil neutral tones, and pops of color ideal for educational settings. With its through-color, through-pattern construction for high durability, plus abrasion and gouge resistance, Raffia Stream is a popular choice for a variety of commercial applications.

MATERIAL:  A composition of polyvinyl chloride resin, plasticizers, stabilizers, fillers, and pigments.

CONSTRUCTION AND COLORS:  Color and pattern detail are dispersed uniformly throughout the thickness of the material.  Color pigments are insoluble in water and resistant to cleaning agents and light.

NOTE: Darker-colored Raffia Stream patterns may be susceptible to scratch whitening.
