This vinyl should measure at least 8-mm or 9-mm thick, but, for vinyl plank, you might go as high as 10-mm or 12-mm for the authentic hardwood feeling. The top layer is a transparent melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs and keeps spills at the surface. Wear layers should measure 20-mils or more.
Cores are related to waterproofing. Yours might be the typical vinyl composite core or a WPC or SPC for even more excellent protection. WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite.) will not peel or ripple no matter how much water they experience, or for how long. SPC is a rigid core, while WPC is softer and more flexible.
This vinyl is also easy to care for with just a mop or broom. Installation can be a simple floating floor. The pieces click together and then hover over the subfloor with no nails or glue needed. Subfloors need only to be clean, dry, and level.
