Global GEM Waterproof SPC Vinyl Floors
Global GEM offers four collections featuring new waterproof Stone Polymere Composite (SPC) vinyl flooring technology. SPC flooring is the newest and latest generation of rigid core vinyl, affording homeowners with the most dimensionally stable and densest options found in the LVT/LVP/WPC/SPC category of waterproof floors.
To create SPC floors, vinyl is mixed with limestone to create a high density core. Using extremely high temperatures, this core is then fused together to the other layers of the floor, including the wear layer and the print film which gives the floor its unique aesthetics. An IXPE Foam insulation backing is then added to provide sound reduction as well as added comfort underfoot. The result? A durable, waterproof vinyl plank floor that will not shrink or swell with a wide range of environmental factors including temperature changes.
Global GEM's waterproof SPC vinyl collections are made available competitive low prices. The Carolina Coastal collection is Global GEM's value SPC floor and come equipped with a 12 mil wear layer, an IXPE padded backing, and direct print SPC construction. In addition to a waterproof, mold-resistant IXPE pad, the Coastal & Farmstead Woods collections boast a thicker 20 mil wear layer and dynamic Embossed-In-Register (EIR) surface textures. Their newest collection, Farmstead, come equipped with a 1.5mm IXPE pad in addition to a thick 4.5mm SPC core.
