LVP looks like wood species in everything from color to species. Surface textures often include the look of scraping or embossing, which dramatically heighten the realism. The ability to replicate real hardwood and stone using advanced photographic technologies is Luxury Vinyl Floor's foundation. Also like wood, planks may be installed in sophisticated ways—in brick fashion, diagonally, and so on.
LVF is made in a 4-step process. From the top down they are: A aluminum oxide urethane finish which prevents light scratching and shoe scuffs. Next comes a clear film that protects against rip and tears. The design layer comes next that is a photo-realistic print of stone or wood. The backing layer or bottom layer which may consist of multiple layers is the core of the product that gives it structure and solidity. The backing layer comprises 90% of the product's thickness.
Due to the way LVF is constructed it eliminates the need to be stripped and resealed.
