What is Hybrid Flooring?
Hybrid flooring is one of the newest flooring options on the market. This innovative solution combines characteristics of both vinyl and laminate, resulting in a versatile, attractive, and hardy product.
How is it Made?
It is formed through the creation of different materials built up in layers. The base is a backing layer, which provides padding and comfort. It also helps to absorb sound. This layer is attached to the waterproof main inner layer, which includes a limestone composite that is stable and able to tolerate temperature change. Even during hot Australian summers, it won’t buckle or shrink.
On top of the core, is a decorative, printed layer available in various styles to replicate natural materials. The topmost layer provides a tough, protective surface and is UV coated. This layer ensures the flooring is completely waterproof.
