Stone Plastic Composite vinyl flooring is considered to be an upgraded version of vinyl flooring. SPC rigid core flooring is set apart from other types of vinyl flooring by its uniquely resilient core. The core is made from a combination of natural limestone powder, polyvinyl chloride, and stabilizers which provides an incredibly stable base for each flooring plank.
SPC rigid vinyl flooring is quickly becoming one of the most popular trends in home flooring. Installing SPC vinyl flooring offers a multitude of benefits to homeowners such as:
Waterproof: One of the biggest benefits of choosing SPC vinyl flooring is that it has a completely waterproof core. Unlike hardwood, it can be installed in areas of the home such as laundry rooms, bathrooms, basements, and kitchens. The waterproof feature also makes this board more stable in environments where moisture and temperature can fluctuate.
A WPC vinyl product is manufactured with a wood-plastic composite backing instead of a solid PVC backing. The engineered backing combines recycled wood pulp and plastic composites to form a bond of strength and stability. This is then topped with a standard vinyl top layer. A WPC vinyl is thicker than your traditional vinyl, so you’ll have a similar feel to a laminate.
Just like a standard vinyl floor, WPC vinyl flooring is waterproof and will not be damaged in the event of a spill or moisture. WPC flooring is a plank system with a glue-less locking system similar to a laminate installation. Another perk is not needing an underlayment for installation.
