What are Hybrid Floors Made Of?
To achieve a hybrid timber flooring look, hybrid planks are made from multiple layers of PUR and PVC moulded together and embossed with a decorative layer to replicate authentic hardwood floors. These specs ensure your hybrid floorboards not only look beautiful but are hardwearing, scuff, stain and impact resistant, and make cleaning a breeze!
At CQ Flooring Melbourne, we apply a 1.5 MM high-density (minimum 600 per cube meters) rubber acoustic underlay to reduce echo and enhance comfort underfoot. This combination makes hybrid laminate flooring one of the best floating floor systems in Australia.
