NovaFlooring Finish Coat


Almost every vinyl plank and tile manufacturer has a factory-finished layer on their finished product. In most cases, in an effort to sell more products, companies create a marketing name for their finish layer.


With NovaFlooring, their finish layer is called: NovaShield. NovaFloor promotes its finish layer to have the following benefits:

  • Better protection of the finish for better protection against dropped items and gouges.
