Vinyl sheets are manufactured by inputting a thin layer of liquid into the backing. The liquid is usually a mixture of vinyl resin, additives and plasticizer. The end-result is a multi-layered product which usually is made up of backing, vinyl foam core, decorative layer and clear vinyl layer. The whole product will then be entered into an oven where it will be treated with urethane. Patterns will then be inputted in the Vinyl sheets either by subjecting it to a printing method or inlaid method. The main difference between these two methods is that the inlaid method’s pattern will be all throughout the whole material including the back part.
