Keeping this in consideration, what does embossed mean on vinyl flooring?
It's a kind of texturing of the surface, not just with random bumps or waviness, but in a more specific way. It is done in part to make a laminate floor look or feel more authentically like real wood. For instance, you may hear the term 'embossed in registration'.
Subsequently, question is, what does embossed texture mean? In the printing industry, Embossing refers to a method of pressing an image into paper or cardstock to create a three dimensional design. Embossing results in a raised surface, with the design higher than the surrounding paper area. A similar but less common technique is Debossing.
Beside above, can you put floor leveler over linoleum?
If you can avoid it, you should probably not use a leveling compound on a vinyl floor. Leveling mixes are designed to make smooth surfaces and are most often used on concrete or wood. It can be confusing because many leveling compounds are marked as useable on a variety of surfaces, including linoleum and vinyl.
What is embossed in register?
The embossing that creates the indentations must align perfectly with the image of the wood or stone in order to achieve this extremely realistic 3-dimensional appearance. This precise alignment is known as embossed-in-register (EIR). The embossed physical grain of the wear layer is married to the image film.
