Greeting’s From Team ARTMIC. Some Exciting New products being launched this year. One of them is the New Waterproof Flooring from FinFloor SA.
Its called Diamond Core Vinyl tiles.

Here are 6 reasons why we are so excited about this new flooring.

1. Diamond Core is highly stable
Diamond Core Stone Plastic Composite tiles are extremely stable, demonstrating dimensional stability that is four times better than any other luxury vinyl tile on the market. Owing to the rigid core, the tiles are impact and indentation resistant.
This is perhaps the major advantage of Diamond Core flooring over any other vinyl flooring option. With the new composition that results in a more rigid and stable tile, Diamond Core SPC can be installed anywhere indoors and is even suitable for rooms with underfloor heating (request for instructions prior to installing), making it an excellent choice for the home or the office.

2. Diamond Core is perfect in any climate
Diamond Core SPC is perfectly suited to every room of your home, from kitchens to sunrooms because they are both heat and 100% waterproof. Owing to the extreme stability of the product, no acclimatisation is required to allow for expansion or contraction from the factory floor, and you don’t have to worry about expansion issues under direct sunlight. These vinyl tiles are more heat-and-cold resistant than any of their predecessors. SPC flooring can withstand the temperature differences from -3℃ up to 50℃, making Diamond Core flooring a great option for anywhere in South Africa.

3. The vinyl tile has a high-density core
Diamond Core tiles are made using a high-density limestone-based composite core which contributes to the rigidity of the tile. The major benefit of this is that Diamond Core tiles can be installed over any surface with no subfloor preparation, and they are guaranteed to show no telegraphing of any imperfections below, for example, Telegraphing of the old tile joints. You can easily install your new Diamond Core tiles over any flooring without the hassle and the cost of preparing the subfloor first.
Diamond Core SPC also has enhanced protection against scuffs and abrasions with a tough, transparent wear layer with an enhanced PUR overlay finish. It is both high-density and extremely durable.

4. They are easy to install
The planks are easier to install than other luxury vinyl tiles, due to the strong and easy to join locking system the ultra-stable material and increased joint strength can be installed over most existing hard surfaces, including ceramic tiles.

Diamond Core floors are both strong and can be installed much faster than those using traditional click systems and, owing to their rigid core, will not telegraph any minor imperfections in the subfloor.
