What about waterproof flooring cores?

If you've heard about waterproof floors, you've likely heard of the core components. The core helps create the waterproof protection these floors have a reputation for.

If you're unfamiliar with these materials, this is a great time to learn more about them. Consider these facts as you prepare to buy new flooring for your home.

What is a waterproof core?

The waterproof core sits in the center of the luxury vinyl flooring construction. It starts with a backing, then a core material, which is topped with a visual, wear, and protective layer.

Each layer has a job for waterproof floors that work well together. The backing creates excellent stability, and a top wear layer protects against daily wear.

The core layer doesn't stand out, but it works hard for your flooring for the best results. And it can keep you protected from water damage for years to come.

What kinds of waterproof cores are there?

There are several different kinds, but the most common are easy to find and very useful. For example, wood plastic composite (WPC) is made of resins, byproducts, and plasticizers.

The other is stone plastic composite (SPC), which is made of limestone and other materials. These waterproof flooring options are more rigid and can withstand heavier traffic, especially over time.
