Could you put polyurethane on vinyl tile floor to seal it and make more waterproof?
Yes you can, however, ensure that this is the best option before executing. I do this to reinforce the self-stick vinyl tile and laminate flooring in my basement and it works great. I got tired of dropping a knife or something creating a huge gash requiring replacement. The polyurethane layer has protected my floors for years. Occasional reapplication of polyurethane in spots where needed making it look new brand new again versus cutting out and re-sticking a piece of the laminate floor that will never look as good as new...I use the former. There are a lot of nay-sayers out there about polyurethane on vinyl tiles and laminate floors, but I've always had great success.

waxing kentile . I have old (20 plus probably) Kentile flooring in my home that I would like to wax. They are very dull and only stay shiny for a short period of time when …I wax them with just a generic floor wax such as Johnsons or Armstrong.. Does anyone know the proper procedure for cleaning, sealing, waxing this type of floor?. Vinyl flooring is the easiest flooring to maintain. It cleans up easily with a myriad of products. I prefer "Armstrong" vinyl floor cleaner. It is available at most supermarkets. Follow the instructions on the label. For deeper cleaning- particularly on textured vinyl- get on your hands and knees and use a scrub brush. I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results.
Bostik makes a urethane glue remover. Be sure to read the directions carefully. You can call Bostik at 978-777-0100 and ask a technical support person first, to be sure. This …product works excellent on wood flooring, not sure about vinyl, so I'd call them first.

No, you can't. It would peel off like sunburned skin, if it ever even set up. And why in the world would you want to do that anyway? Yes you can; http://www.nauticexpo.c…om/prod/polyflor-voyager-flooring/vinyl-floor-coverings-for-ship-31432-193520.html
vinyl is impervious to liquid and does not need any sealing.
Polyurethane scratches easily which will definitely show throughyour slate tile, also due to the porous nature of all naturalstones the poly will become a permanent fixture in… your otherwisebeautiful tile. So, in that case, it could be done using the latestspecifications and design criterion for the sealing of a slate.
What is the weight of Vinyl Floor tiles per m2
You cannot polyurethane ceramic tile. Polyurethane requires a porous surface. Ceramic is glazed and therefore has no pores. If the floor didn't shine when it was new, it never… will. If it is dingy, use white vinegar and water. It works great.
Three basic types of "Vinyl" flooring . 1960's True Vinyl, which is paper with pattern & urethane coating . 1800s Linoleum which is cork dust & linseed oil, rare but not imp…ossible to find (good green attributes!) . 1990's Fiberglass flooring. New generation & is quickly replacing the older stuff. . The True vinyl flooring is pretty much waterproof as it comes from the factory. The Vinyl flooring process is pretty much a matter of making a thick & absorbent high tech paper, Then: . coating it with a chemical process to make it take printing ink . Running it through a high speed printing press almost like a color news press . Then coating it with a coat of Urethane . flash setting the urethane with UV light, heat & air . rolling it up & sending it to you So back to your question, the paper substrate, absorbs water from the top or the bottom, if exposed to water. The urethane coating protects the paper and is waterproof, until it is installed in your home. Then any crack, scratch, pinhole breaches the wear layer & lets moisture into the paper & damages the pattern & paper from below. The newer Fiberglass products are waterproof & water on or below them doesn't harm the products. Linoleum Is another story. Basically impervious to water, but the adhesive holding it down may be water soluble, so water is not linoleum's friend.
Not directly as the ceramic tiles will soon show through the vinyl flooring. If the ceramics are laid on a wooden floor, you must take up the tiles and overboard with 6mm plyw…ood. If the tiles are on a concrete floor, you can leave them down and lay a latex screed on top to provide you with a smooth floor for your vinyl
Generally you only need a utility knife. They also sell a vinyl tile cutter, but they can be expensive. Take the utility knife with a straight edge and using pressure cut the… tile. Sometimes you will need to cut more than once.
Always hate to answer a question with a question, but sometimes it helps.. Why would you want to do that & what does it get you?? Laminate has a stain proof surface and the …Polyurethane wont stick long term, My belief & experience is that what you propose wont work..
That would depend on whether they are ceramic tiles or more vinyl tiles.
Yes, the poly does not soak into the wood, for the most part, so it can be put on any stain/paint. I just put it over Behr Weatherproofing stain last week.
The benefits of vinyl floor tiles is that they are easy to clean and they are very durable. If you spill anything on the floor, you can easily wipe it up or mop it up.
