LVP: Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring has a few options, you can choose a Wood-plastic composite (WPC) or a Stone-plastic composite (SPC) also known as Rigid Core Vinyl Planks. Both WPC and SPC are 100% waterproof.
SPC/Rigid core vinyl is extremely tough, and perfect for high-traffic areas and commercial buildings. Also SPC is great for commercial buildings, because of the ultra-dense core, it’s not likely to dent under heavy furniture.
WPC vinyl flooring has a waterproof core, it is made from a wood and plastic mixture which makes it 4 layers thick and very durable. WPC can be installed anywhere in your home or building.
Wear layers are the top layer of the flooring; it helps to withstand scuffs, dents, scrapes, and stains. There are different thicknesses of wear layers, and for commercial the thicker the better!
12 mil (Better): Residential – Light commercial.
20 mil and up (Best): Commercially rated. High traffic environments.
