Advantages and disadvantages of laminate flooring


1.Nursing is simple, bright as new, not embedded dirt, easy to clean;

2.Aggrandizement floor quality is stable, damage not easily;

3.Aggrandizement floor as a result of the structure distinctive concern, did not have so tall to lumber requirement, and can make full use of material, because this price is lower than what real wood floor wants a lot of low.


1.Aggrandizement floor cannot enter water, cause foaming, deformation because of bibulous expansion very easily otherwise;

2.The decorative effect is poor.

Let’s talk Vinyl -- specifically Vinyl plank flooring. Vinyl plank flooring is growing in popularity in both residential and commercial applications. We’ll get into LVP, some SPC and some WPC for good measure, as well as the differences between them, and the pros and cons of each.

Perhaps the most popular vinyl plank flooring product on the market today, and growing quickly, is Rigid Core Vinyl Plank. Rigid Core can be either WPC (Wood-Plastic Composite, or Wood-Polymer Core) or SPC (Stone-Polymer Core). While most frequently designed to look like traditional hardwood flooring, the first letter -- “W” or “S” -- refers to the composition of the core layer alone.

Similarly to LVP, Rigid Core WPC/SPC flooring is made up of layers, the combination of which leads to a flooring fit for residential, commercial, wet and dry spaces. The base layer is an attached underlayment of foam or cork, adding comfort underfoot and a small amount of sound absorption. On top of that is the core – where these Rigid Core flooring options get their names – made of a composite of wood or stone powder and plastic or resin. Immediately atop the core is the vinyl layer, using digital technology to add color and print perfection to your home. The icing on this flooring cake is the wear layer, bringing that scuff and scratch resistance.

Unlike general LVP, WPC and SPC flooring is waterproof and can be installed in wet areas of both residential and commercial spaces. The wood in the core will not warp, buckle or swell if it comes into contact with water in normal day-to-day use.

The advantages and disadvantages of SPC flooring


1、Green environmental protection

The main raw material of SPC floor is polyvinyl chloride, polyvinyl chloride is environmental protection non-toxic renewable resources, it has long been widely used in People's Daily life, such as tableware, medical infusion tube bags, its environmental protection is not to worry about.SPC floor (sheet) is mainly composed of natural stone powder, which does not contain any radioactive elements detected by the national authority. It is a new type of green and environmental protection ground decoration material.

2. Ultra-light and ultra-thin

SPC floor has a thickness of 3.2mm-12mm, the weight of each square meter is only about 2-7.5kg, less than 10% of the ordinary ground materials, in high-rise buildings for the building bearing and space saving, has an incomparable advantage.At the same time in the second decoration, reconstruction has a special advantage.

3. Super wear resistance

SPC floor surface has a special transparent wear-resisting layer processed by high-tech, its wear-resisting revolution can reach 8000 turns above.The revolution of wear-resisting aggrandizement wood floor with relatively wear-resisting in traditional ground material has 800-4000 turn only.


1.The shortcomings of stone plastic floor is also caused by "hard" "lock".Stone plastic floor to ensure the cost performance at the same time also let the lock become "brittle".So the pavement of the ground requires higher, otherwise the floor that has laid is useless how long, the lock that splicing place is cracked!Of course, stone plastic floor lock "brittle" this is determined by its product itself.

2.Stone plastic floor and other PVC floor, need to identify whether it is recycled production.

Because the stone plastic floor has the characteristics of recycling (from the macro point of view, this is also very environmental significance), and the floor produced by the material can not determine the composition of the material, so the stability of the floor is difficult to get control.The physical and chemical properties of the recycled stone plastic floor are uncertain.Return material stone plastic floor generally have heavy metal exceed the standard, radiation exceed the standard, product structure is not stable.

Some businesses will guide customers from the floor of the substrate color to determine whether the stone plastic floor is recycled production.The author's point is that this is unscientific and unrigorous.The general circulation on the market has black bottom and white bottom two colors of stone plastic floor.The black bottom is not necessarily return material production, and the white bottom is not entirely new material production.The colour is determined by the colour of the dye and the nature of the marble powder.If the titanium dioxide and marble powder is more pure white, the production must be white (even if the return material is added).If carbon black is added and marbling is grayish, the result will be black.

To identify whether the stone plastic floor is back material, you can observe whether the cross section of the floor has pores and impurities, and you can also let the factory show the heavy metal detection report.

3、Stone plastic floor waterproof need to give it a definition

Stone plastic floor is indeed formaldehyde free, but waterproof is not 100%, once someone asked, stone plastic floor can be used in the outdoor, even used in the bottom of the pool, the answer is, of course, no.We understand the structure of the stone plastic floor layer will be able to understand, stone plastic floor is not long-term soak in the water.But it works well in places that are prone to moisture, such as changing rooms in shower centers, hotel rooms, restaurants, and shopping malls.

Advantages of WPC flooring

WPC flooring, fully known as Wood Plastic Composition, originated in Germany, until 2011 began to become popular new environmentally friendly Wood Plastic composite.It is made of a certain proportion of wood powder and plastic by hot extrusion, which has various advantages of plastic and wood and can replace wood and plastic. It is completely consistent with the theme of forest protection and green environmental protection that is advocated today.



1. Environmental protection material, ultra-light and ultra-thin

2. PVC is the main raw material of WPC flooring, because of its green environmental protection and renewable, it is often used in life and medical supplies closely related to human beings.The thickness of the floor is 1.6mm

3.-9mm, the weight of each flat is only 2-7kg, which can be called extremely light and thin.Greatly reduce the load of the building, save space.

4.High hardness, high elasticity, can be processed

5.WPC board contains plastic, so good elasticity, feet feel comfortable, known as the "soft gold ground material".

6. And because it contains wood fiber, it has the same mechanical properties as wood material, and even the surface hardness is higher than the latter, so that the durability is stronger.

7. Fire prevention, moisture-proof, anti-slip, anti-noise, antibacterial, corrosion resistance

8. BI fire rating, second only to stone.The vinyl resin that does not have affinity with water makes the floor won't because the surface touches water and produce mildew, won't because of water and slip easily more, because floor surface layer is more sticky water is more acerbate.Floor sound-absorbing can reach 20 decibel, fight acid fight alkali and the surface added antimicrobial agent, can inhibit the reproduction of great majority bacteria.

9.Convenient installation, small gap

10. The same installation method as the composite floor can be disassembled.The gap was so small that it was barely visible.
