Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring comprises several layers of various materials sandwiched together to form a highly durable, practical, and cost-effective floor sheet. It is a popular synthetic material because of its durability and functionality. Furthermore, it is one of the most cost-effective floor sheet options. Vinyl flooring can look like wood, stone, marble, and other high-end materials. 

Vinyl flooring is typically made of four layers of materials. The first, or bottom layer, is the backing layer, which is typically made of cork or foam. It serves as a cushion; thus, walking on the floor is more comfortable. Vinyl floor sheets also act as sound barriers to keep noise at bay.

The waterproof layer is located on top of the backing. This layer is intended to absorb moisture without swelling or compromising the floor’s integrity. WPC is wood and plastic deposit, and SPC, stone and plastic deposit, are the two types of waterproof layers.

The design layer is above the waterproof layer and includes a high-resolution print. Several design layers are printed to look like wood, marble, stone, and other high-end materials. 

Finally, the wear layer is located on top of the vinyl flooring and protects it from damage. High-traffic areas require a thick wear layer to maintain a long lifespan, whereas less-walked-upon areas can tolerate a thinner wear layer.
