The difference between LVT, SPC, WPC board
PVC floor, commonly known as plastic floor, is a general term. Any floor made of polyvinyl chloride as raw material can generally be called PVC floor. New types of floors such as LVT, SPC, and WPC are actually PVC floors. For categories, they just add different other materials, so they form independent subcategories. So what is the difference between the three?
LVT floor, soft and flexible flexible floor, professionally expressed as "semi-rigid sheet plastic floor", they can even be bent into rolls. The market retail price of LVT floor ranges from tens of yuan to 200 yuan. It is mainly used for tooling projects, because it has high requirements on the floor and requires professionals to lay it, so from the cost considerations, it is usually only suitable for large-area laying. Of course, for rental houses or offices with low flatness requirements, this kind of floor is both good-looking and affordable. The recognized advantages of LVT flooring are: low price, environmental protection, wear resistance, good elasticity, impact resistance, waterproof and flame retardant, waterproof and moisture-proof, and convenient maintenance. This kind of floor is often laid in schools, kindergartens, playrooms, and is also used in family children's rooms.
SPC floor, Stone plactic composite, is a rigid plastic floor, which can also be bent, but compared with LVT floor, the degree of curvature is much less. Its common name is Shijing Floor, and it is called Stone Plastic Floor or Plastic Stone Floor in Hong Kong and Taiwan. It is laminated by one-time heating and does not need to use glue at all. The market retail price of SPC flooring is usually between 100 yuan and 300 yuan per square meter. It has many advantages, such as high environmental protection; waterproof and moisture-proof; insect and mothproof; high fire resistance; good sound absorption; no cracking, no deformation, no thermal expansion and contraction; low price; easy installation; no formaldehyde , Heavy metals, phthalates, methanol and other harmful substances. The disadvantage of SPC is that the density is relatively heavy and the transportation cost is relatively high;
WPC floor is a semi-rigid sheet floor, commonly known as wood-plastic floor. Because the early WPC floor added wood powder, it is called wood-plastic floor. Simply put, it is composed of LVT layer and WPC layer. The foot comfort and sound absorption effect are very outstanding. If the cork layer or EVA layer is added, some people say that the foot feel is almost the same as the solid wood floor.
