In the wonderful world of vinyl, a new hero has come into action. Introducing: Rigid Core Vinyl!! Rigid Core often refers to himself as waterproof vinyl 2.0 (it's an inside joke apparently). However silly he may be, there is some validity to this nickname. For years, WPC (wood composite core / waterproof core) vinyl has dominated the vinyl market, or the hero universe, if you will. WPC was everywhere, saving the day, kickin butt and taking names. Well, WPC's little brother "SPC" (solid polymer core aka rigid core) came to town and may be a little bit thinner, but SPC/rigid core is cleaning up the town. Not only is rigid core also 100% waterproof, is thinner yet denser than the WPC on the market, and is commercially rated and approved for high traffic areas, making it truly "waterproof 2.0".
All superhero jokes aside, rigid core flooring is one of the newer, more advanced flooring products to hit the market, and it has taken it by storm. Rigid core is approved in application where other floors aren't, and considering how dense it is and the length of the warranties, the initial investment is well worth it.
