Tuffcore Vinyl Flooring is Here!


TuffCore is exclusively distributed by National Flooring Products. This innovative line features distinctive finishes with realistic and High-Def imagery.

TuffCore’s multi-layered design combined with industry leading PSI core rating will ensure a stable “LifeProof” floor. TuffCore offers the beauty and elegance of hardwood without all the maintenance.

TuffCore flooring is a vinyl-based plank alternative to hardwood. This product stands out as it is created by blending PVC and a polymer blend. This unique compound resists the expansion and contraction that is seen with traditional hardwood flooring. The PVC polymer is formed
into a core with a patented interlocking click system. The core then has a high-definition photographic applique on a layer of virgin PVC vinyl and topped with a heavy-duty textured surface.

What are available textures for TuffCore flooring?

SM=Smooth: All of the flooring planks will have a smooth surface with minimal dents, divots, or
bumps. Available in a large spectrum of choices, a smooth floor can be finished in a matte
surface, with very little reflectivity, or a high gloss surface that is very lustrous. Smooth finished
flooring renders clean lines with a traditional look.

DS=Distressed: Commonly mistaken for hand-scraped, distressed surfaces reveal light chatter
marks, divots, or scrapes. Distressed surfaces resemble the effects of every day wear over a
long period of time. Similar to hand-scraped, distressed flooring can easily hide every day
wear and tear.

HS=Hand-Scraped: Each flooring plank is manufactured with a hand-scraped appearance.
Characterized by hills, valleys, and chatter marks giving the floor a rustic, timeless personality.
Also referred to as hand sculpting, hand-scraping can be very pronounced or very subtle.
Hand-scraped flooring tends to show less wear and tear over time making it a good choice
for very active families.

WB=Wire Brushed: This very unique look and texture is created during the manufacturing process
and is designed to look as if the wood surface had been briskly rubbed with a steel wire brush.
The combination of textured surface and applique design provides a rich, durable texture
filling your home with comfort and style.

LE=Light Embossed: Embossing is a manufacturing process that presses grain and texture directly
into the top wear layer. This gives the flooring a more realistic wood appearance.
EIR or RIE=Registered Embossed: Embossed in register (EIR) simulates the natural appearance of
hardwood flooring by adding depth and texture. This is accomplished by perfectly matching
the texture with the print on the material before all of the layers are heat pressed together.
