iQ Optima - Optima SOFT LIGHT GREY 0946

With over 40 years as a bestseller and 100 million square metres sold, our iQ Optima flooring has made history. Today the story continues with a revamped collection.

Featuring a new design and an expanded palette of colours, the collection is inspired by the soft washes and shifting translucent, opaque quality of watercolour. iQ Optima has an updated directional effect with translucent chips, exclusive to Tarkett, which is now available in 3 patterns and 55 colours.

iQ Optima is renowned for its unique iQ dry-buffing surface restoration, a maintenance methodology that extends its lifespan and provides unbeatable durability.

Specially designed to be used in colour combination with our iQ Granit and iQ Eminent collections, iQ Optima is available in an Acoustic version for all 55 colours and can be paired with our iQ technical ranges which have non-slip, static conductive, and dissipative characteristics.

Produced in Sweden, the range is globally recognised for sustainable performance, made from responsible materials, and recyclable (off-cuts and post-use) with our ReStart® programme.

Circular selection

This collection is part of our Circular Selection which exemplifies the principles at the heart of our journey to the circular economy - designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems. We’ve made sustainable flooring easy for you by pioneering post-use recycling technologies to close the loop on our products and bringing together our sustainable heroes in one comprehensive collection.

Recycling. Good in theory, better in reality.

Recycling installation flooring waste is a no-brainer. But how to recycle used flooring when it comes to the end of its life? Often covered in glue, bits of concrete and other chemical residues from years of use? Now there’s a challenge! We have developed a new technology to disassemble and recycle our post-use homogeneous flooring while retaining maximum material purity and creating secondary raw materials with equally good performance and durability to create new homogeneous flooring.
