SOLON, OHIO, September 1, 2018 — Tarkett, a worldwide leader in innovative and sustainable flooring and sports surface solutions, launches Melodia 3.0™ and Aria 3.0™ a homogeneous sheet and tile collection created by Johnsonite. With an updated, soothing color palette and the strength and hygienic performance of homogeneous sheet, Melodia 3.0 and Aria 3.0 coordinate beautifully to create safer, more comfortable environments. These complementary visuals combine with xr2 polyurethane technology to hide dirt, reduce maintenance, and withstand high traffic with rolling loads—making a more complete flooring solution very difficult to find. Low TVOCs contribute to better indoor air quality for ambient wellness in our physical spaces.
Melodia’s full palette offers a perfect backdrop to Aria’s granite-like styles. Both are available in sheet and tile formats to provide greater flexibility and faster installation. Our xr2 polyurethane is a perfect choice for high-traffic areas with rolling loads. This tough, UV-cured surface treatment is factory-applied, adding further strength and durability to Melodia and Aria’s solid, homogenous construction. By resisting chemical stains and scuff marks, xr2 dramatically reduces a variety of maintenance costs—including labor, water, energy and chemicals—for a positive total lifecycle return on investment.
Tarkett believes in placing people in the center of every space. Melodia and Aria are ideal flooring solutions for Healthcare and Education. Additionally, as part of Tarkett North America’s sustainability measures and commitment to people-friendly spaces that perform and inspire, Melodia and Aria contain 25.5% pre-consumer recycled content and are 100% recyclable through the Tarkett ReStart® Reclamation Program.

• NSF-332 Gold certified
• ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 certified
