Introducing Tarkett iQ™ One, the First and Only Non-PVC Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Gold Level Homogeneous Flooring

SOLON, Ohio (June 13, 2016) – Tarkett, the global leader in innovative flooring and sports surface solutions, introduces iQ™ ONE, the first non-PVC Homogenous flooring product on the market and the first to be Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Gold level. This includes a Gold for Material Health, a certification for products made out of materials that are safe and healthy for humans and the environment.

iQ ONE offers a perfect balance between aesthetics, flexibility and strength. Its non-PVC formula provides the same unique benefits that have made iQ a recognized name for decades – dry-buffed surface restoration, durability and easy installation and maintenance.

With superior resistance to wear, tear and stain, iQ ONE benefits from its unique dry-buffing surface restoration technology – it will retain its original beauty over time, with nothing more than the occasional dry buff. No wax needed. Eliminating wax and polish can save up to 30% of lifetime maintenance costs. This unlimited restoration property provides a long life of quality and good looks and makes iQ ONE ideal for high-traffic areas such as public spaces, education and healthcare facilities.

iQ ONE combines its high-performance characteristics with design inspiration from the beauty of nature through its clean visuals. Its terrestrial aesthetic resembles divided rock particles created by wave erosion and volcanic geology, such as geodes, pebbles, granules and sand. The iQ ONE patterns are characterized by three (3) distinct looks that deliver soothing, non-directional aesthetics. The three (3) iQ ONE patterns, Tectonic, Metamorph, and Lithosphere, mimic natural formations to various degrees so that each one has a unique energy to correspond with the design intent for the space.
Consisting of a patented blend of thermoplastic polymers, iQ ONE does not contain PVC, plasticizers or phthalates. With low VOC emissions, 100% recyclability and no biocides, iQ ONE contributes positively to the environment and people’s well-being.
