An entirely new class of stepped-up LVT products referred to as Rigid Core or Multilayer flooring has emerged which adds features and benefits to the many design and performance benefits of flexible vinyl LVT products. Rigid Core/Multilayer flooring is defined as modular flooring with a rigid polymeric core, a decorative top surface and an optional soft underlayment pre-attached to the bottom of the product. Rigid Core products are produced in many realistic visuals and in tile and plank formats. Look for the ASSURE CERTIFIED™ badge for smart, durable and responsibly made Rigid Core flooring.
There are two Rigid Core product constructions, Expanded Polymer Core (WPC) and Solid Polymer Core (SPC).
