DMX 1-Step
LVT Vinyl Plank Flooring
The best choice for Vinyl Plank Flooring


Unlike existing foam underlayments for LVT, DMX 1-Step LVT™ creates an air gap under your vinyl planks allowing for moist air to evaporate, thereby reducing mold growth under your floors. NO other dimpled underlayment can do this.

Here are the superb characteristics of DMX 1-Step LVT™:

  • Moist air is constantly coming in through little cracks in the concrete floors and walls
  • Dimples create an air gap between your LVT™ floors and the concrete slab.
  • This air gap allows moist air to evaporate thereby reducing the possibility of unhealthy mold growth
  • The dimples are encapsulated in a closed cell foam which is waterproof and keeps your floors warm and comfortable
  • DMX 1-Step LVT™ has a compressive strength of 8,000 lbs/square foot
  • The low profile dimples provide structural support for LVT joints and resist vertical movement on  a level floor
  • DMX 1-Step LVT™ does not require a Moisture Test in the concrete like other foam underlayments.
