VCT tile identification

need help trying to identify a VCT type tile.
a large builder I do work for said the City asked him to redo a building with the stuff they used on another building.
they didn't give him a name or anything and are trying to find the name, make, etc.

I usually don't do this stuff but with flooring contractors dropping out like fly's there's a lot of
work out there to bid and he will except my bid over others.
plus this looks more forgiving with it's texture for floor prep.

thanks.

Hey, to me it most closely resembles Slate Black from Armstrong. The number is 57004 Slate Black. I cant post links so if you just go to the Armstrong website and look it up you should be able to find it. Hope this helps.

personally I did a good amount over my years of doing hard tile.

but this job is 7-8 k sq.ft. so I will hire guys that can do it.

I will be standing, pointing and reading plans.

Brian,

When it comes to VCT, you've got the right idea! (Standing, pointing, and reading plans!).

Brian,
texture or no texture don't cut corners on the prep or you will be back. Over time vct always shows poor prep. Good luck, vct is easy money with kind of quantity if it's not all cut up.
