The Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI) has expanded membership, adding to its roster four manufacturers and three suppliers—two for underlayment and a third for primers and moisture-mitigating materials.

A trade association of manufacturers and suppliers of raw materials, additives, and accessories, RFCI membership represents more than 95 percent of all resilient flooring marketed throughout North America. It has led development of product transparency declarations and environmental product declarations (EPDs), along with certifications such as NSF/American National Standards Institute (ANSI) 332, Sustainability Assessment for Resilient Floor Coverings, and the FloorScore indoor air quality (IAQ) certification program.

“RFCI’s expanding membership is continuing evidence of the growth of the resilient flooring category and luxury vinyl tile in particular,” said the institute’s president, Dean Thompson. “We welcome these new members who share our commitment to improve the industry and advance our sustainability initiatives.”
