Debolon Resilient Vinyl FloorIn a revolutionary technological development, Debolon Research and Design engineers replaced phthalate plasticizers with domestic sugar beets (citric acid esters) as a natural, sustainable softener in its sheet vinyl flooring. This advancement has been incorporated into all four of the Debolon Collections: Compact, Comfort, Spezial and Rx™. Each Debolon Collection has been designed to fulfill the unique and demanding requirements in healthcare environments. Debolon Rx™ was designed specifically to meet the needs of the aging population with its signature glare-free design and comfort underfoot. Debolon Rx™ serves as an example to represent just one of the many distinctions in the Debolon flooring collections for healthcare.
