LVT stands for Luxury Vinyl Tile, which is a shortened term for luxury vinyl ceramic tiles. LVT flooring imitates natural materials such as marble and wood with remarkable realism. It offers a much more cost-effective alternative to using real marble or ceramic tiles. LVT flooring also boasts excellent scratch resistance and waterproof properties. It is composed of a photographic print layer that captures the authentic appearance and a wear layer that significantly enhances durability. Additionally, LVT flooring allows for easy customization of various shapes and sizes.


How is LVT made?

The production process of LVT is rather complex. It is made using polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and calcium carbonate, combining plastic and limestone. It is manufactured through a multi-layered composite structure. LVT has numerous advantages, including wear and scratch resistance, which effectively protects the vinyl layer. It also features a decorative PVC print film and a vinyl backing. LVT flooring products can be designed with soundproofing capabilities, reducing noise from foot traffic, making it highly suitable for crowded areas.

What are the advantages of LVT flooring?

LVT flooring offers a wide range of designs that can mimic the surfaces of natural materials such as stone, marble, and wood. It can replicate wood grain patterns and various colors with precision. LVT flooring utilizes a multi-layered design with PVC and limestone, providing unparalleled durability in any environment. Moreover, LVT is highly environmentally friendly and recyclable. It complies with WELL and LEED certification standards and is manufactured using non-phthalate plasticizers. Maintenance is simple, and LVT flooring naturally possesses stain resistance and wear resistance.


Where can LVT be used?

LVT flooring is suitable for most indoor residential applications and is commonly used in bathrooms and kitchens. However, LVT should not be used in shower areas but instead requires the use of non-water-soluble adhesives.
