Why do few people choose SPC flooring, because there are four most misunderstood places.
SPC floor is widely used in business places. It is a very suitable floor for refurbishing the ground of old buildings in the city. Most of the PVC lock floor that is used in home decoration will not choose SPC floor, and because SPC floor is fully rigid and plastic The characteristics of SPC flooring are hard. SPC flooring has unique properties that are incomparable to solid wood/floor tiles/plastic flooring. For everyone, we have collected 4 main points of SPC flooring that are most easily misunderstood, and restore the truth!
1. The use range is small
SPC floor is a very good material, which has the advantages of wear resistance, durability, and environmental protection. Widely used in various indoor places. Covering medical, sports, schools, education, kindergartens, commerce, office, etc., you can see the SPC floor.
2. Time of birth
PVC lock floor has been used and promoted globally for 20 years. From the early LVT lock floor (mainly 3.2mm thick) and WPC lock floor (commonly used thickness 5.5mm5.0mm) to the current spc floor, SPC floor is a new product that was born in the past five years. Most of LVT/WPC are produced by hydraulic pressure, and the custom delivery time is as long as 20 days. However, the SPC floor can be formed by an integrated extrusion process, and the delivery time can be shortened to about 7 days.
3. Wear-resistance means that it will not be damaged by scratching with sharp tools
When I am often asked about the service life and wear resistance of the SPC floor, I mentioned taking out sharp tools such as a knife or key and scratching the surface of the SPC floor. If there is a scratch, it is judged to be non-wearing. In fact, the abrasion resistance test of the PVC lock floor is not simply scratching the surface with a sharp tool. It is a flat-bottomed circular sanding disc. The test floor is polished under the pressure of 1Kg. After the number of rotations, the surface of the floor is durable. The grinding layer is worn out to expose the number of revolutions of the base layer. The number of revolutions at this node is an indicator to measure the abrasion resistance of the PVC lock floor. For example, the minimum number of revolutions of laminate flooring is 1500 revolutions. Therefore, the abrasion resistance of PVC lock floor is specially measured by the national inspection agency.
4. Using the nose to smell the smell is not environmentally friendly
To be more precise, SPC flooring with a strong pungent smell is not environmentally friendly. The SPC base material itself is formaldehyde-free. A qualified SPC floor should be 100% formaldehyde-free. It may have the smell of fragrances and additives, which will not cause harm to people's bodies or make people feel. Uncomfortable.
