Atmosphere Recycled Rubber Flooring

tm981_01.jpe Many of these Atmosphere floor tile designs look similar to Marmoleum. Made with recycled tire rubber, the squares get additional points for installing without adhesives and off-gassing little. They are extremely durable and even reversible, and also resistant to stains, microbes and fungus. The downside is that the non-recycled part of the tiles is composed of EPDM rubber, a synthetic. Marmoleum wins on the biodegradable scale, but Atmosphere might be a longer-lasting choice for high-traffic areas. :: To Market
