Luxury vinyl flooring is manufactured with multiple structural layers made from various materials, such as PVC, foam, and cork. It’s different from standard vinyl flooring due to its high-end features, such as its softer underfoot feel and sound-blocking properties.

The finished product is incredibly durable and stable, withstanding heavy foot traffic, moisture exposure, and daily wear and tear with ease. It’s incredibly versatile and available in many colors, patterns, and textures that emulate opulent surfaces like natural quarried stone or hardwood.

The integrated padding in select options is the icing on the cake, adding to the overall appeal of the flooring by adding extra perks. It enhances the floor quality and your experience, from comfort to sound-dampening.

IXPE: The Premium Choice for Luxury Vinyl Flooring Padding

Irradiated cross-linked polyethylene (IXPE) is a cutting-edge material that has revolutionized the flooring world. Designed specifically for padding in luxury vinyl flooring (LVF), IXPE offers remarkable advantages.

This material is a top pick for its outstanding moisture protection, ideal for bathrooms and kitchens, and its sound-dampening effects, which minimize sound transmission throughout your home. Designers and homeowners covet flooring made with IXPE padding for its ability to create a luxurious feel that enhances the aesthetics and functionality of a space. 

The Benefits of IXPE Pre-Attached Padding

The benefits of IXPE padding are far-reaching, making flooring equipped with it a sought-after staple. This flooring has much to offer, from its unmatched moisture protection to its underfoot comfort.

Moisture Protection

The closed-cell foam structure of IXPE provides robust moisture protection, making it 100% waterproof. This feature safeguards your floors from spills and leaks and prevents the growth of mildew, mold, rot, and bacteria, ensuring a cleaner and healthier living environment.

Sound Dampening

IXPE’s superior sound performance significantly reduces noise transmission, enhancing the tranquility of your home. With impressive Impact Insulation Class (IIC) ratings, this padding minimizes impact noise, creating a quieter and more peaceful ambiance. Say goodbye to noisy footsteps and hello to blissful silence!

Thermal Insulation

Beyond its moisture and sound-dampening properties, IXPE is an effective thermal insulator, creating a comfortable and energy-efficient space. Minimizing heat transfer through floors helps maintain a stable indoor environment, ensuring coziness during chilly winters and coolness during scorching summers.

Comfort and Health Advantages

The perks of IXPE pre-attached padding go beyond moisture protection, sound control, and thermal insulation with its premium comfort and antimicrobial features.

The attached padding offers more underfoot comfort, creating a plush, luxurious feel that supports each step. The padding enhances underfoot comfort, whether you’re standing in the kitchen whipping up a culinary delight or strolling through the hallways.

Furthermore, IXPE padding possesses antimicrobial properties, promoting healthier living throughout your home. The padding helps promote your family’s health by disrupting the growth of potentially harmful microbes like mold and mildew.
