How is luxury vinyl flooring constructed?

Luxury vinyl flooring comprises at least six to eight layers and is five times thicker than the original product. This floor is 100% waterproof, highly durable, and affordable with a high-end style.

You'll be most interested in these four layers. They strongly contribute to the product's aesthetics, waterproof capabilities, and strength.

The core: the foundation of a floor

Cores are responsible for stability and waterproof capabilities. Luxury vinyl floors are made up of either vinyl, WPC (wood plastic composite), or SPC (stone plastic composite) cores.

All of them are 100% waterproof, whether submerged or spilled on.

The printed design sheet

Luxury vinyl tile (or LVT flooring) is cut into square, tile-sized pieces. It can also be cut into planks to mimic hardwood floorboards or stone slabs.

Realism is underscored with luxury vinyl flooring. The design layer includes nature-inspired, realistic images of wood, stone, and tile taken digitally. The floors have micro beveling and embossing to add depth, dimension, and textured looks.

The wear layer

A transparent melamine layer stands over the design layer. It protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents, making it impossible to "walk off" the design.
