Luxury Vinyl Tile

Luxury Vinyl Tile, or LVT, is a heterogeneous resilient flooring material comprised of multiple layers—most often an embossed or smooth wear layer coated with a protective finish, a printed film layer that can mimic the aesthetic of other materials, a vinyl or rigid core that provides stability, and a backing layer that can provide underfoot comfort or acoustical properties. Unlike vinyl composition tile, luxury vinyl tile is non-porous, making it moisture resistant and easy to clean. The multiple layers are fused together to provide a durable yet flexible modular product that is scratch and scuff resistant, allowing it to be ideal for high-traffic commercial environments.
