Heat welding is a process of thermo-fusing or heat sealing separate
pieces of resilient flooring together at a seam or joint. Primarily used in
commercial applications, a successful heat welded seam will provide the
customer with a floor free of voids and joints where pathogens and bacteria can
collect. For this reason, resilient floors with heat welded seams are sometimes
referred to as seamless floors and are frequently used in areas requiring an
aseptic or clean environment.
