Mohawk Industries, the world's largest flooring manufacturer, continues to show innovative leadership with its new Spring 2018 introduction of RevWood Plus waterproof laminate flooring.
Waterproof and All Pet Warranted
RevWood Plus uses a combination of proprietary features to create waterproof protection. The Uniclic ® joint system, GenuEdge® pressed bevel edge and Hydroseal perimeter coating in combination, create the RevWood Plus waterproof technology.
How it Works
The first component is the Uniclic locking system. The joints are milled to such extremely small tolerances, the result is a incredibly tight joint which prevents water from seeping through from above. Add to this, GenuEdge pressed bevel edges - the laminate decor rolls over the edge and into the Uniclic joint providing yet another layer of water protection. Finally, the perimeter surfaces are coated with HydroSeal - working together with Uniclic and GenuEdge to trap liquid on the surface. Hydroseal is a hydrophobic coating applied around the perimeter of the click profile and is an integral part of the RevWood Plus waterproof system. The end result is the first laminates floors that can be wet mopped and to have All Pet Protection with a warranty covering all pets, all accidents, all the time!
A Little Extra Installation Step
The key factor to waterproofing these laminates floors is keeping the liquid on top of the surface. This requires a small extra step of perimeter sealing with silicone to prevent liquids from seeping underneath the floors from the edges. RevWood Plus is engineered to prevent everyday household spills from penetrating the top surface of the floor. Once planks are cut during installation this protection is removed from the cut edges. Therefore, perimeter sealing with 100% silicone sealant is required to maintain the RevWood Plus spill protection. This keeps moisture on top of the floor and away from the unprotected cut edges.
Beautiful and Waterproof
Having such a high performance floor does not mean you have to sacrifice beauty. RevWood Plus laminates feature the latest trending colors in soft brown and gray. Plus an authentic appearing finish with Embossed in Register surface texture and pressed bevel edges. Sawmill Ridge features radial saw marks which add rustic charm, inspired by vintage reclaimed hardwood planks. Elderwood has chisel-distressed edges for ultra-realistic detail. Antique Craft brings coveted large plank format to laminate flooring with a magnificent 9 7/16-inch wide and 80 1/2-inch long size. Southbury boasts five brand new Oak colors with in-register embossing. Western Ridge debuts a fresh new color palette with Pine visuals. Crest Haven portrays Euro Oak style wood in all its glory. Mineral streaks, cracks and knots are precisely delineated with in-register embossing - a technique which creates texture that follows the relief and grain of the wood.
