Advantages and disadvantages of LVT floor
1. Green and environmental protection
The main raw material for the production of PVC flooring is polyvinyl chloride. Polyvinyl chloride is an environmentally friendly and non-toxic renewable resource. It has been widely used in people's daily life, such as tableware, medical infusion tube bags, etc. Its environmental protection is not required. worried.
2. Super wear-resistant
There is a special PVC wear-resistant layer on the surface of the PVC floor, and its wear-resistant revolution can reach 30,000 revolutions. According to the different wear-resistant thickness, it can be used for 5-10 years under normal conditions. The thickness and quality of the wear-resistant layer directly determine the use time of the PVC floor. The standard test results show that the 0.55mm thick wear-resistant layer can be used under normal conditions. After more than 5 years of use, the 0.7mm thick wear-resistant layer is enough for more than 10 years of use, so it is super wear-resistant. Because of its super wear resistance, PVC flooring is more and more popular in hospitals, schools, office buildings, shopping malls, supermarkets, vehicles and other places with large traffic. (For the wear resistance of the wear-resistant layer, currently it is mainly used to measure the loss, that is, the quality reduction as an indicator)
3. High elasticity and super impact resistance
The texture of PVC floor is soft, so it has good elasticity, and it has good elastic recovery under the impact of heavy objects. At the same time, PVC floor has strong impact resistance, and has strong elastic recovery for heavy impact damage without causing damage. The excellent PVC floor can minimize the damage to the human body on the ground, and can disperse the impact on the foot. The latest research data shows that after the excellent PVC floor is installed in a space with a large flow of people, the person falls down. And the injury rate is reduced by nearly 70% compared with other floors.
4. Fire retardant
The fire resistance index of qualified PVC floor can reach B1 level, which means that the fire resistance performance is very good, second only to stone. Extinguished from fire.
5. Easy to maintain
The maintenance of PVC floor is very convenient, just wipe with a mop if the floor is dirty. If you want to keep the floor lasting and bright, you only need regular waxing maintenance, and the maintenance frequency is much lower than that of laminate floors.
6. Waterproof and moisture-proof
Since the main component of PVC floor is vinyl resin, which has no affinity with water, it is naturally not afraid of water, as long as it is not soaked for a long time, it will not be damaged; and it will not be mildewed due to high humidity.
Non-natural materials, high requirements for the base floor (the base layer must be flat, solid and dry when laying the LVT floor, the surface of the plastic floor should be smooth, the yin and yang corners should be square, no falling edges, no oil, dust and impurities).
