Special types of flooring are following:
 
Linoleum Flooring:  

  • This flooring material is a mixture of linseed oil, gums, resins, pigments, wooden flour, cork dust and other filling materials.
  • It is available in rolls of width about 1.80 or 3.60 meters. 
  • The thickness varies from 2mm to 6mm. 
  • Linoleum flooring is also available in the form of tiles. 
  • Linoleum should be laid over an effective damp-proof area.
  • Linoleum flooring is attractive in appearance, cheap, durable, comfortable and moderately warm and it can be easily cleaned.

It reduces noise to a considerable extent and is used for residential buildings,restaurants, railway carriage and pubic transport buses, hospitals, schools, libraries, offices, etc. 
  
Rubber Flooring: 

Rubber flooring: Rubber flooring is a popular choice today. 

  • It is available in the form of tiles and sheets which are made from synthetic rubber. 
  • It comes in plain, ribbed, fluted or other raised patterns. 
  • It is suitable for locations where a non-conducting floor (where heat or electricity can not pass through) is required. For e.g., laboratories, amusement parks, etc.
  • This flooring material is a mixture of raw rubber, fillers such as fiber, corks, etc. and pigments. 
  • A small percentage of sulphur is added to speed up the process of vulcanization (The process of making naturally soft rubber harder by reaction with sulphur). 
  • The material is available in different colors in both sheet forms and tile forms. 
  • It can be laid over any smooth and dry surface. :
  • This flooring material is elastic, attractive, noiseless, sanitary, comparatively warm and soft, but it is affected by oil and grease. 
  • This flooring material is used for bathrooms, hospitals, X-ray rooms, etc. 
  • This flooring is used for auditoriums, dance halls, gymnasium floors, etc. 
  • The thickness of wooden blocks does not exceed 10 mm. 
  • The blocks are laid in desired patterns and they are fixed by means of hot glue. Then they are nailed with the help of panel pins. The heads of these pins are punched off and putty is filled in the holes. 

False Flooring: 

False Flooring is normally used in computer rooms for routing cables under the floor

PVC Flooring or Vinyl flooring:

I looked for Fase Flooring with 35mm Th novateak super board manufactured by Bombay Burmah Trading.
But in Bombay Burmah trading website there is no mention of this product.
