Importance of a good wear layer

kp Flooring Films

Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) Flooring consists of different layers such as underlayment, core layer, print layer and wear layer. One of the most important features of your floors is in the top wear layer. This is the most critical component as it protects the print design of your vinyl. Learn about the importance of a good wear layer and why it matters most.
The wear layer is THE component protecting the print film layer from spills and scratches ensuring the long-lasting look and durability of the flooring film. To give the end product a more realistic look and feel, the wear layer is often textured or embossed which can also help providing slip resistance.
