WHY SHEET RIGID CORE VINYL FLOORING?
Rigid core is a type of luxury vinyl flooring that typically combines a vinyl print layer with a “rigid” core layer to provide more dimensional stability and resistance to dents and scratches.

DIMENSIONAL STABILITY

Dimensional stability is very important in flooring as it determines how much your floor will “move” after it is installed. Flooring products that are less dimensionally stable may experience shrinkage and/or swelling due to external temperature changes and the amount of moisture that occurs when the humidity fluctuates in the room. This type of change in your flooring can be visually unappealing. The rigid core enhances the floor’s ability to maintain its dimensional stability despite temperature and humidity fluctuations in the room.

Dimensional stability isn’t the only benefit of rigid core vinyl flooring. This type of flooring is typically made up of multiple layers that all work together to enhance the floor’s performance. Most rigid core vinyl products are made up of 4 basic layers: a wear layer, a vinyl print layer, a rigid core layer, and a backing layer. The wear layer is very important as it protects the vinyl print layer and adds resistance against stains, scratches, and everyday foot traffic.

The rigid core layer adds dimensional stability but also plays a role in the underfoot comfort and sound absorption of the flooring. The backing layer helps secure your new floor to the subfloor, as well as adds some underfoot cushioning and sound dampening performance.
WATERPROOF
Another benefit of rigid core vinyl flooring is that the core is waterproof.

This means that the flooring will not absorb or change its shape if exposed to water. This is an important feature allowing the floor to be installed in rooms where spills are common like kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms. However, it is important that any spills that occur are wiped up promptly and that any water or moisture issues in the room be addressed before installing any new flooring. This will ensure the subfloor underneath remains clean and dry.
