SPC flooring and rubber flooring contrast
SPC flooring and rubber flooring are the same as elastic flooring, but there are differences:
◆ Different composition and production process: rubber flooring is divided into homogeneous and heterogeneous. Homogeneous rubber flooring refers to the flooring which is vulcanized by single or multi-layer structure with the same color and composition based on natural rubber or synthetic rubber. Non-homogeneous rubber flooring means that the flooring is based on natural rubber or synthetic rubber. The upper layer comprises a wear layer and other compact layers which are different in composition and/or design, and the compact layer comprises a skeleton layer.
◆The color difference is different: rubber flooring coloring is more difficult, because rubber has strong color absorption, so most rubber flooring color is relatively simple; and SPC flooring color is very much, can be combined in any way, can give designers more s choice.
◆The degree of difficulty in installation is different: the texture of the SPC flooring is lighter, and the installation is convenient and quick; the rubber flooring is heavy and the installation is laborious. Moreover, the installation method of the rubber flooring is more strict. If the method is not correct, the requirements for the self-leveling foundation are more perfect, otherwise the defects of the base layer will be exaggerated.
◆ There is a difference between market demand and wear resistance: rubber flooring is used only in some high-end places due to its high price. The range of stone flooring is very wide due to its high cost performance, and the market potential is huge. In addition, rubber flooring is more wear-resistant, and is suitable for use in airports, stations, and other places where traffic is heavy, as well as in airplanes, trains, subways, automobiles, ships, and the like.
