Easton Flooring has the best selection of luxury vinyl

After seeing a photo, or an actual luxury vinyl flooring installation, you may decide luxury vinyl is what you want in flooring. Congratulations! You have chosen the fastest growing type of flooring. An extensive list of benefits has sparked the popularity of luxury vinyl tile and luxury vinyl planks. The list includes:
  • Water-resistant
  • Waterproof (Some models)
  • Anti-bacterial
  • Slip resistance
  • Extremely durable

The appeal of LVT and LVP stems from more than these hidden features. Advances in texture embossing and print film technology, mean luxury vinyl planks and tiles are available in a wide range of patterns and colors.

Flooring manufacturers are aware of the trend. More luxury vinyl tile and planks are available than ever before. Ten years ago, laminate brought low-priced flooring to the market. LVT and LVP have started a repeat performance. This article is meant to serve as a guide to help consumers get a grasp on luxury vinyl specifications that should be considered when choosing flooring.

Luxury vinyl construction

Most luxury vinyl is a composite of PVC, plasticizers, and print films. The backing is a mix of fiberglass or plasticizers and vinyl. A paper print film is used to cover the material. The print film contains the color pattern.

A layer of recycled PVC or a clear, virgin vinyl is placed on the print film. This layer is referred to as the wear layer of the flooring. This layer protects the paper print film. Embossing or some other level of texture compliments the print film look.

A urethane coating is applied to the wear layer for further protection and to provide the desired pattern sheen. Depending upon the design, the luxury vinyl is cut into LVT or LVP.

The most important element of luxury vinyl

The most important specification is the wear layer. If the wear layer wears through, there will be damage to the paper pattern. The thicker the wear layer, the longer luxury vinyl will look great and last.
