WPC vs SPC Flooring

In-floor decoration, China is generally used to using ceramic tiles, wood floors and carpets. This kind of floor is the most popular in Europe and America, also known as “light body floor” or “light body floor material”. It is a very popular new light body floor decoration material in the world. It is popular in Europe and America, Japan, South Korea and other countries and regions in Asia, and the utilization rate in some regions is even more than twice that of wood floor.

Here We will show the Comparison of WPC vs SPC Flooring.

WPC for wood plastic flooring

WPC combines the waterproof and stability of LVT and is as easy to install a laminate floor

with the increase of cork and EVA pad, the foot feel and sound insulation effect will be better than the latch floor of LVT.

WPC uses all environmentally friendly materials, which will be more environmentally friendly than laminate flooring.

In short: WPC has the advantages of LVT and laminate.WPC vs SPC Flooring

1. Composition

WPC: Wood Plastic Composition=LVT Layer + WPC Core

1.1.1 WPC LVT layer and WPC layer are bonded by glue, and the peel strength is very good, even better than that of LVT color film layer and frosted sheet after hot pressing

1.1.2 WPC is more stable than PVC:

The WPC floor shall be kept under the high temperature of 80 ° C plus or minus 2 ° C for 6 hours, taken out and placed at the normal temperature of 23 ° C plus or minus 2 ° C and 50% humidity for 24 hours. The following conclusions are drawn:

The shrinkage of the length is 0.11%

The shrinkage of width is 0.07%

Warpage: 0.25

mmLVT:0.08-0.15%

Warpage: 0.5-1.2mm

2. WPC advantages

WPC engineered vinyl flooring – WPC’s price is gold. WPC’s price of 5.5mm is basically the same price level as vinyl’s 5.0mm latch and glue-free products, but higher than magic buckle, and far higher than water washing glue and ordinary PVC floor (glue brushing type);

The installation cost of WPC is far lower than that of ordinary rubber brushed PVC floor, lower than that of ordinary PVC latch floor, and there is little difference between the installation cost of glue-free PVC floor, magic buckle and water washed rubber PVC floor;

WPC’s waterproof property is quite good, and the waterproof property of the wood-plastic layer is also very stable. WPC vs SPC Flooring. On the contrary, the waterproof effect of the magic buckle, water washing glue and ordinary rubber brushing PVC floor is general because it involves glue;

The installation convenience of WPC is relatively convenient due to the angle tap installation method, which is suitable for DIY. Of course, dry back, which needs to be paid separately, is the worst at this point.

WPC floor is certainly good in terms of mute and foot feeling, especially WPC floor with cork or EVA pad;

WPC is also very good in environmental protection, including formaldehyde emission, heavy metals, especially reach test. All 144 items passed.

WPC flooring is a weak point in terms of recyclability after use because WPC (wood-plastic) can not be recycled and reused. PVC flooring of other products can be reused as recycled materials. WPC vs SPC Flooring.

3. Several problems needing attention in WPC’s communication with customers

(1) Because the LVT layer of WPC is generally only 1.5mm thick, the plate pattern shall be relatively flat as far as possible. Do not grasp it with hands and classic slate (slate pattern). The rate of defective products will be very high.

(2) The cost of 6.0mm wood plastic layer is 1.80 US dollars per square meter higher than that of 5m wood plastic layer WPC + 2.0mm EVA form: price + usd1.00sqmWPC + 1.5mm cork: price + usd1.50sqm

(3) WPC LVT layer and WPC layer are bonded by glue, and the peel strength is very good, even better than that of LVT color film layer and frosted sheet after hot pressing

(4) For the size of WPC, some may mention that 143mm width is required, which is also the width of our products in the past. However, after testing and experience in large goods production, 143mm loss will be large, so it is uniformly changed to 146mm. Less wear means low cost.

(5) When preparing WPC samples, especially when the whole sample plate is required, please be sure to assemble it by yourself. Some samples made in the early stage are defective, and small samples can be made, but the whole piece may have height difference, inclined head seam and other problems, so please confirm it before sending it. Otherwise, the effect will be even worse.  WPC vs SPC Flooring.

2、 Stone plastic floor SPC:

Stone plastic composite (SPC) is a new environmental protection floor developed based on high technology. It has the characteristics of zero formaldehyde, mildew proof, moisture-proof, fire prevention, insect-proof and simple installation. SPC floor is a product of extruding PVC base material by extruder combined with T-shaped die, and heating, laminating and embossing PVC wear-resistant layer, PVC color film and PVC base material at one time with three rolls or four roll calender. The process is simple, and the lamination is completed by heat without glue. SPC flooring materials use environmental protection formula, do not contain heavy metals, phthalates, methanol and other harmful substances, and comply with en14372, en649-2011, iec62321 and gb4085-83 standards. It is widely popular in European and American developed countries and Asia Pacific markets. With its excellent stability and durability, the stone plastic floor not only solves the problem of damp deformation and mildew of solid wood floor but also solves the problem of formaldehyde of other decoration materials. WPC vs SPC Flooring. It has many colors and patterns to choose from and is suitable for indoor home decoration, hotels, hospitals, shopping malls, and other public places.

Shrinkage of SPC floor: ≤ 1 ‰ (after tempering), ≤ 2.5 ‰ (before tempering), (shrinkage test standard: 80 ℃, 6 hours);

SPC floor density: 1.9 ~ 2T / m3;

Advantages of SPC floor: the physical indexes of the SPC floor are stable and reliable, and the chemical indexes meet international and national standards;

Disadvantages of SPC floor: SPC floor has high density, heavyweight and high transportation cost;

Compared with LVT and WPC flooring, SPC flooring has simple processing and manufacturing process.

Advantages of SPC environmentally friendly flooring:

SPC floor is a new type of environment-friendly composite material product. Its advantages are as follows:

(1) Waterproof and moisture-proof. The utility model fundamentally solves the problem that wood products are easy to rot, expand and deform after absorbing water in a humid and watery environment, and can be used in an environment where traditional wood products can not be used;

(2) Insect and termite prevention, effectively eliminate insect harassment and prolong service life;

(3) Colorful, many colors to choose from. It not only has natural wood feeling and wood texture but also can customize the required colors according to their own personality;

It is an environmental protection product and can be recycled, which greatly saves the use of wood. It is suitable for the national policy of sustainable development and benefits the society;

(6) High fire resistance. It can be effectively flame retardant, the fire rating reaches grade B1, self-extinguishing in case of fire, and does not produce any toxic gas;

(7) Good machinability, can be ordered, planed, sawn, drilled, and the surface can be painted;

(8) Simple installation, convenient construction, no complicated construction technology, saving installation time and cost;

(9) No crack, no expansion, no deformation, no maintenance and maintenance, easy to clean and save later maintenance and repair costs;

(10) Good sound absorption effect and energy-saving, so that the indoor energy saving is up to more than 30%;
