Congoleum synthetic floors include sheet flooring, as well as the AirStep, K-Tech, DuraCeramic, DuraPlank, Ovation Luxury Tile, DuraStone HPF Tile, Connections Glueless Plank, and Endurance Plank collections.
Congoleum has 8 primary sheet flooring product lines. They are each rated according to their warranty, durability, and stain protection using a 5 star system. Available designs, widths, and lengths vary depending on the product.
Congoleum advertises AirStep as the "better alternative to fiberglass flooring." There are 2 product lines for AirStep, and each feature the Silverantimicrobial protection.
AirStep Evolution is the thickest of the AirStep products and has the Stain Defense System (SDS). The AirStep Plus has a Scotchguard Protector and aluminum oxide wear resistance. Both the AirStep Evolution and AirStep Plus are FloorScore Certified, which indicates the quality of indoor air.
Congoleum K-Tech is designed particularly for kitchens in its style and durability. K-Tech features Silver, an antimicrobial protection, along with an advanced stain and soil repellency. The designs of K-Tech include the appearance of sheet flooring, tile, and wood flooring.
DuraCeramic tiles are approximately 16" x 16 " with a limestone composite base. The material used to manufacture DuraCeramic tiles causes them to generally feel warmer to the touch when stepped on than ceramic tiles. DuraPlank offers the look and feel of real wood in the form of 4 1/2" x 36" planks that resist moisture and can be installed on, above, or below grade.
Both DuraCeramic and DuraPlanks have the Silver antimicrobial protection and built-in Scotchguard Protector. The two lines can also be installed with or without grout, and combined for more design options.
Ovation Luxury Tiles are 14" x 14" with a limestone composite backing, and 4 different patterns. They can be installed with or without grout.
DuraStone HPF Tiles are 16" x 16" and use the patented nano-composite technology. They have a limestone composite base.
The Connections Glueless Plank uses aerospace-proven technology. Each plank is 6" x 48" and can be installed over almost any hard surface or underlayment using the SmartLink glueless system.
Endurance Planks are designed to simulate real wood with two sizes of planks: 4" x 36" and 6" x 36".
Light traffic for the first 24 hours followed by normal traffic after 48 hours of installation are the standard instructions for a Congoleum floor. A waiting period of 16 hours after the application of a seam sealer during installation is advised.
Congoleum recommends regular cleaning of its products to ensure their longevity. Floors can be washed 48 hours after the installation and Congoleum offers a Bright 'N Easy No-Rinse Cleaner.
Immediately following the installation of a Connections floor, the room temperature should be kept between 65° F and 85° F for at least 48 hours, and between 55° F and 85° F in the future.
The Limited Warranties for Congoleum synthetic floors and the star rating system range from 5 Years to Lifelong, and can be found on the manufacturer's website.
