The finish is typically polyurethane, or some variety of that type of product. A floorcloth is used on the floor as a rug, and is particularly suited to high traffic areas, or areas frequently in need of cleanup. Other great locations for floorcloths can be entry ways, dining rooms, and bathrooms.
But the favorite of all favorite places is in front of the kitchen sink.
How are GraffitiMats finished?
We call it "DURAFLEX FINISH" and it's our own formula.
We developed our own finish through trial and experimentation. In a desire to work with water-based products rather than oil based (as polyurethane), we began with polyacrylic floor finish. We add some adhesive to increase the flexibility, an additive to give a matte finish...water it down to allow for multiple layers...apply multiple layers to all sides to give it durability.
GraffitiMats are finished on both sides with up to 5 layers of DuraFlex. The finish is hand applied, and completely seals the fabric design layer away from staining. GraffitiMats are durable to heavy traffic and easy to clean with just a damp mop or cloth. They are non-absorbent, and will fully protect your flooring underneath.
How do GraffitiMats differ from Painted Floorcloths?
GraffitiMats are very similar to a traditional painted floorcloth. There are a few distinct improvements though....
GraffitiMats are flexible, but will never curl on the edges or corners.
GraffitiMats have a thinner hem because of our technique of fabric collage. There is no bulk on the edges.
GraffitiMats are totally customizable in color and size.
