Vinyl flooring - beautiful and practical, HD Mineral Core vinyl flooring
When creating the collections of vinyl flooring, we strived to make them beautiful like wood, and at the same time practical like ceramic tiles. At foundation of this product lies a mineral core (HD MINERAL CORE) developed in our laboratory, which is a mixture of natural minerals with modern polymers. We have also taken care of a number of properties thanks to which - we are deeply convinced of it - you will love Arbiton floors.
- WOOD STRUCTURE. Design based on natural beauty, selected from among the most wonderful varieties in the world.
- SOFT to TOUCH. Natural structure with a matte finish. It is thanks to her that the vinyl flooring feel so much like real wood.
- WIDE PLANK. The widest on the market, as much as 229 mm. It provides a beautiful and natural look of the floor, especially on large surfaces.
- SILENT FLOOR. You will appreciate it in everyday use. Guarantee of comfort and peace.
- DURABILITY. Thanks to dozens of tests it is very resistant to abrasion, with special coating Titanium Nano Layer.
- FLOOR HEATING. We have developed HD Mineral Core Vinyl Click flooring to ensure the highest efficiency of underfloor heating.
- WATER RESISTANCE. Resistant to moisture, easy to clean. Perfect for the kitchen or bathroom.
- DIMENSIONAL STABILITY. The mineral core in the vinyl flooring means that a vinyl click floor can be installed on an area of up to 200 m2 without the need for increased dilatation gaps.
As you can see, the proposed vinyl flooring are of the highest quality, based on modern solutions, durable materials and the highest precision of workmanship. Soft, pleasant to the touch, yet scratch-resistant, truly durable. In combination with the structure of wood, we get a perfect product.
The real star here, however, is the mineral core, created by combining natural and synthetic ingredients - minerals and polymers. Thanks to those we get a vinyl floor with a higher durability, one hundred percent waterproof. The high density of the core makes the panels perfect for installation with underfloor heating. The dimensional stability allows you to lay a floor with an area of 200 m2 without increasing dilatation gaps, also between rooms. It is a great choice for large open spaces - a kitchen with a dining room or a living room.
Floating system of click vinyl flooring
Simply put, the installation of panels in a floating system is based on the fact that they are not permanently attached to the floor, so we do not use any glue. It is worth noting that the floor on which we plan to lay a floating vinyl floor does not have to be perfectly even, a standard developer screed is enough. This is one of the many myths that have arisen around installation in a floating system.
However, what you need to remember is the assembly instructions, which you should follow when laying a floating floor. You should also vacuum the floor and take care of a dedicated underlay that supports very precisely milled locks. Choose only underlays intended for LVT panels - it is very important! For Arbiton vinyl click flooring, it is recommended to use Multiprotec Vinyl Click or Secura Vinyl Click underlays. The panels are connected with each other using appropriately profiled locks. It's a simple method, but it requires some attention.
Different types of vinyl flooring
Vinyl flooring is a broad category of products. The newest of them and currently the most trending are SPC floors. These are vinyl planks with a stiff, extremely durable core that conducts heat perfectly. The name SPC (solid polymer core) can be translated as rigid panels. Sometimes the name FULL RIGID is also used to describe them.
SPC floors have all the advantages of the first generation LVT PVC flooring, while eliminating their main disadvantage. Good SPC panels are dimensionally stable - they do not change dimensions under the influence of temperature changes. An example of a hard core used in SPC panels is HD Mineral Core developed by the R&D department of Decora. It is a mineral core made of natural rock minerals and modern polymers. It provides exceptional impact resistance and conducts heat very well. Floors with a mineral core (HD Mineral Core) are beautiful as wood and practical as ceramic tiles. In appearance, they are indistinguishable from real wood, and in use they resemble tiles. The dimensional stability allows installation on up to 200 m2 of space, without the need for additional expansion gaps. So there is no need to use thresholds or profiles in the door. Panels of this type have gained many supporters, and the users, apart from the appearance and practical aspects, praise, above all, the ease of cleaning and nice, wood resembling structure.
A good vinyl flooring in the FULL RIGID version should have a high density. Therefore, these panels are quite heavy. High density is a guarantee of the durability of the product. Thus, the lower the weight, the lower the density of the panels. Unfortunately, lightweight RIGID flooring are often damaged and are not stable. So if we want to perform the first quick quality test of SPC panels, let's compare their weight.
Light, rigid, low-density panels are a type of vinyl flooring known mainly from American interior design programs and some DIY stores. In the case of EPC - extruded polymer core - the core is a mixture of PVC and chalk that has been foamed. It is this technology that makes the panels light. Unfortunately, this affects their durability. The air-filled core is easy to damage. This solution is also much less effective when it comes to laying floors for underfloor heating. Such panels are not as resistant to the fall of heavy objects as panels with a mineral core.
HD Mineral Core is the third generation of vinyl flooring. These are modern products that are worth choosing regardless of where they are to be located - at home, apartment, office or service premises.
Arbiton vinyl flooring collections - a design you'll love
Large-size vinyl click planks, the latest collection of Arbiton flooring- Amaron Superiore, are certainly one of the longest vinyl planks available in Europe. They are over 183 cm long, which makes them look very effective and natural. The Synchronous Structure (Natural Synchrone Structure) Arbiton Superiore panels owe to the embossing technique (EIR), which was used for the first time in vinyl click flooring with a HD mineral core, perfectly fits the pattern. It has a hyper-natural effect which is enhanced by a deeply matte, elegant finish. The panels are covered with a patented Titanium Nano Layer layer, which increases their scratch resistance by up to 30%.
Architects and designers love the herringbone pattern. First of all, they appreciate the fact that if you want to have a "herringbone", you are not condemned only to wood. Herringbone are the decors that most often appear in top interior finishing magazines. Therefore, it is not surprising that there are many high profiled realisations with this kind of installation. And the name itself - of course, refers to England, which has a lot in common with the history of the herringbone pattern. A floor made of Herringbone vinyl planks has beautiful, natural decors.

When to choose vinyl flooring?
In short, if you want to combine the beauty and unique charm of wood with the practicality and functionality of ceramic tiles, think about a vinyl floor.
LVT and SPC flooring will actually prove themselves in all rooms. It is a modern solution that takes the best of both worlds - it combines the charm of wooden floors with durability and ease of cleaning of ceramic tiles. However, it is worth highlighting a few additional advantages that make vinyl floors an unbeatable solution.
Vinyl flooring is a great solution for people suffering from allergies. First of all, they are cleaned in the same way as ceramic tiles, and therefore extremely easy, and secondly, such floors are antistatic and do not adhere dust. What's more, modern Arbiton panels have a HD Mineral Core, thanks to which they are durable and insensitive to moisture. The great advantage is also the fact that the material from which they are made is resistant to bacteria, fungi and microorganisms.
Vinyl click floors with a mineral core are perfect for use in rooms with underfloor heating. The low resistance they represent to underfloor heating makes the entire heating system more effective. The room heats up faster and the energy bills are lower - even up to several hundred EUR a year. At the same time, they do not emit any volatile organic compounds. When selecting specific panels, it is good to pay attention to the information on formaldehyde emissions. When it comes to Arbiton products, this type of information can be found in the product card.
Another advantage is the surface of the vinyl flooring, the surface texture is reminiscent of wood. By touch alone, it is difficult to say whether we are dealing with natural wood or a vinyl flooring. We can safely say that vinyl is a perfect projection of natural wood.
Walking on this type of surface is pure pleasure. If we also have vinyl flooring with a mineral core, we also get a floor resistant to impact and the fall of heavy objects. A falling toy of our child or an accidentally knocked down mug will never damage the floor again.
