COREtec Plus Tile Empire Slate
12 x 24 Waterproof Vinyl Floor Tiles
The COREtec Plus Tile Empire Slate is an 8 mm. thick Waterproof Vinyl Floor with attached cork underlayment made by US Floors. It represents the next revolution in luxury vinyl flooring and a far superior option to ceramic or porcelain tiles, and glue down LVT. The patented construction of COREtec Plus features the innovative COREtec structure, which is formed by an extruded core made from recycled wood and bamboo dust, limestone, and virgin PVC. Additionally, these flooring planks feature a cork underlayment or padding, which is already attached to the back of the boards. This feature allows for a faster installation and should reduce both material and labor costs. Since COREtec Plus is 100% waterproof, these floors can be installed in wet areas, like bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms and will never swell, warp, or buckle when exposed to water. According to the manufacturer, the COREtec structure is inert and dimensional stable; it will not expand or contract under normal conditions, and it doesn’t need an expansion transitions in large room areas.
