Layers of WPC Vinyl Flooring

Layers of WPC Vinyl Flooring

WPC waterproof flooring is comprised of multiple layers. Here are the common layers of construction:
  • Backing Layer - This is the base of your plank and with some products comes with attached underlayment. *not all have underlayment
  • WPC Core - This is the waterproof core. It won’t swell or damage in the presence of moisture
  • Printed Vinyl Layer - This is what gives you the gorgeous stone or wood look. WPC typically has an enhanced visual to look even more like the real deal
  • Wear Layer - This is your floor’s defense from dents, scratches, and the like. The thicker the wear layer, the more protection it has

Benefits of WPC Vinyl Flooring

  • It’s 100% waterproof. Install it virtually anywhere
  • Perfect for imperfect subfloors. If you have damage to your subfloor, waterproof vinyl can hide those unattractive imperfections
  • Realistic looks. Incredible and convincing wood and stone look alternatives
  • More resilient than tile. It’s true, you could just get a wood or stone look tile and it would also be waterproof. But tile is hard. Standing on a tile floor all day isn’t great for your joints or feet. Vinyl is more resilient and much more comfortable.
  • Zero maintenance. All you need is the occasional vacuum and damp mop to keep your WPC looking fabulous
