From Floor Trends Magzine--Expanko Resilient Flooring, a brand of The Stonhard Group, has introduced CorkCore|luxury vinyl tile (LVT).
According to the company, CorkCore|LVT is a unique combination of waterproof LVT and 100% natural cork. CorkCore|LVT is a highly durable, quiet, easy-to-maintain flooring solution ideal for hospitality, healthcare, education, retail, corporate, restaurant and multifamily markets worldwide.
“Just like the name, 100% natural cork is at the core of this product,” said Randy Gillespie, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Expanko.
CorkCore|LVT measures 48-inches long and 5.5-inches wide and is comprised of five superior layers totaling 6mm thick, featuring a .55mm wear layer for durability and a 3mm cork core for sound reduction, warmth, comfort and water resistance. CorkCore|LVT is available in 12 registered embossed wood visuals and a 12 plank pattern repeat.
CorkCore|LVT’s compression system takes full advantage of all the properties of cork—flexibility, elasticity and compressibility, functioning like a cork stopper. According to the company, planks can be installed as a floating system or glued down over approved substrates without a vapor barrier. No additional sealers or finishes required for a simple installation. A mild detergent, vacuum cleaner or floor duster is all that is required for daily/weekly maintenance.
