Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) luxury vinyl flooring is 100% waterproof. It won’t swell, ripple, or peel even if it is soaked in water. Planks and tiles that have this waterproof core are ideal for basements, kitchens, bathrooms, and entryways. Typically, this top of the line product is composed of four layers, which are listed from top to bottom.
- Wear layer - protects against daily wear and tear
- Design layer - high definition image that provides a realistic look
- WPC core - dense, durable, and great for uneven subfloors
- Backing layer - adds cushioning and sound insulation
Wear layer thickness is measured by the MIL number. Thehigher the MIL number, the more resistant your floor is to scratches, scuffs, and other abrasions. While an 8 MIL wear layer is often the lowest available, it is adequate for most homes. If you have a lot of activity in your home, the 12 MIL option may be best for you. A 20 MIL top layer is great for businesses.
