High end vinyl floor (LVF) is a relatively new term, covering high-end vinyl stone like tile (LVT) and high-end vinyl wood like floor (LVP). The selection of corresponding categories reflects different aesthetic views. Some people like the limestone or marble style of LVT floor, others like Papua ebony or tropical bamboo style of LVP floor, but they all have the properties of wear-resistant, low maintenance and high cost performance of vinyl tile plank flooring.
Architects and construction experts are fans of LVT flooring. Through digital imaging technology and exquisite manufacturing process, the surface decors and textures of stone like or wood like high-end vinyl flooring can achieve the realistic effect of fake and true, so that experts can not distinguish them from real wood flooring or ceramic tiles.
According to the World Association of pavement materials, it is the premise of the whole high-end vinyl base plate system to be able to use advanced photography technology to copy real hardwood and stone. Four different layers are then fused together to produce the final product, which in turn are an elastic vinyl support layer, a vinyl color coating layer, a photographic film layer, and a top coating of polyurethane or alumina. The top protective layer (also known as wear-resistant layer or mill layer) is very important for the durability of products, and those products with high quality even have wear-resistant layers up to 40 mils thick. At present, many commercial products have successfully used wear-resistant layer design of 20 mils or more. (Note: mil is also called milliinch, 1 mil = 25.4 microns)
From the perspective of optical and visual effects, high-end vinyl stone like ceramic tiles and high-end vinyl wood like flooring can imitate natural stone, all kinds of hardwoods and all ceramic tile styles, which undoubtedly matches the diversified real needs of contemporary life. However, compared with its fashionable and avant-garde design, the durable, easy to clean and easy to maintain high-end vinyl floor is also recognized. Because of this, they can be seen everywhere, whether it's the farmer's home in the backcountry or the luxury apartment in the fashionable city.
