What Is Vinyl Plank?

Vinyl plank is a synthetic material that is made up of several different layers. The ROKplank brand of vinyl plank starts with a high density IXPE pad underlayment which helps to reduce sound and provide extra comfort. The next layer is the core layer which is stone polymer composite (SPC). This core layer is 100% waterproof. On top of that layer is the HD print film which is the actual design/look of the vinyl plank. There are then 2 layers over that consisting of the wear layer which protects the HD film and then the ultimate shield scratch resistant UV coating which is ten times stronger at resisting scratches, stains, and abrasives then regular UV.

Advantages of Vinyl Plank:
