The answer is in the innovative layered design. Usually, WPC and SPC vinyl flooring is made up of four layers, but this can vary between manufacturers. Let’s look at the typical build for a piece of quality waterproof vinyl flooring.


Backing Layer

This is where the magic begins. The backing layer meets your subfloor, smoothing out any imperfections in the surface without costing you a lot of money in repairs.


This backing is often an attached layer of cork or foam, and it eliminates your need to buy a separate underlayment. This layer also adds some spring to the floor, and muffles the hollow sounds in the room.


Waterproof Core

WPC vinyl is sometimes also called waterproof core vinyl, and that’s thanks to this crucial layer. The waterproof center will not absorb liquid, no matter how long it’s put to the test. No mildew, no warping, no swelling. No problem!


SPC vinyl also boasts a totally waterproof core. In stone plastic composite flooring, this layer is thinner and a lot more dense, and that increases the durability. This rigid, durable design makes SPC floors perfect for commercial use.


Printed Vinyl Layer

Here comes the fun part. High-quality vinyl is some of the best material on the market for mimicking natural textures. Wood-look, stone-look, you name it. WPC and SPC vinyl flooring offers realistic visuals that could convince anyone it’s the genuine material.


Wear Layer

This is the powerhouse of your waterproof vinyl floor. The wear layer is the surface you walk on, and this is the first defense for your flooring. Waterproof vinyl floors are known for their thick, substantial wear layers. The thicker this layer is, the more durable your floor.


Unbeatable Waterproof Bathroom Flooring

All together, these four layers make WPC and SPC vinyl flooring completely waterproof. It’s true! But you don’t have to take our word for it. We put our waterproof core vinyl to the test with the Red Wine Challenge.
