What is Waterproof

WPC vinyl is the hottest new thing to arrive in the vinyl market in years. We know what you are thinking “what the heck is WPC?” Other than Wow Pretty Cool, there are a couple legitimate meanings for the acronym WPC. WPC can mean Wood Plastic Composite as well as Waterproof Core.

The Luxury vinyl tile was already one of the fastest growing flooring covering categories. When you add to its benefits waterproof features and ease of installation, WPC products are a homerun for the consumer.

WPC is the best of the best in the vinyl flooring world and hugely popular amongst homeowners looking for the look of traditional hardwood without the maintenance. It is also one of the most popular flooring options for commercial spaces and businesses.

WPC waterproof flooring is typically comprised of 4 layers.

Backing layer: This is the backbone of your plank.


WPC Core:

This is the main attraction! WPC flooring contains a solid, waterproof WPC core. It won’t ripple, swell or peel no matter much liquid you subject it to.

Printed vinyl layer: This is where you get your gorgeous photo imagery that makes the vinyl look (nearly) identical to natural materials like stone and wood. Often, WPC vinyl flooring is the highest quality vinyl on the market. This means you get the most realistic looks that people will swear are really wood/stone!

Wear layer: Just like with traditional vinyl, the wear layer is like your bodyguard; it helps protect your floor from dents, scratches, etc. The thicker the wear layer, the buffer your bodybuilder. WPC indoor flooring is known for having a buff, beefy wear layers offering more protection. When you look at vinyl flooring, it’s just as (if not more) important to look at wear layer thickness as plank thickness.
