1. Look at the pattern on the floor surface and compare the thickness of the wear-resistant layer

Floors with fuzzy texture, incorrect color, unnaturalness and poor solid wood feel are not resistant to UV rays and are easy to fade. These floors are undoubtedly low-quality PVC floors. For example: there are currently several manufacturers of products such as Walrus and Yongmeijia. In contrast, look at the color, and you can tell the quality of the product at a glance by touching it with your hand. The texture of the color film layer of the walrus is more real and the color is full. The texture of Yongmeijia's color filter layer is not so three-dimensional. 2. Look at how many threads the wear-resistant layer is, the thicker the thickness, the more wear-resistant it is.

2. Measure thickness

If the conditions are good, it is best to measure the thickness of the floor with a caliper or a thousand feet. The actual thickness is about 0.2mm more than the marked thickness, which is the normal range. For example: regular manufacturers mark the thickness of 4.0 according to the production standard, and the measurement with a caliper or micrometer should be around 4.2. Because the thickness of the wear-resistant layer and the uv layer is added, if the actual measurement is 4.0, the actual thickness is only 3.7-3.8, so it can be based on this thickness. to judge the quality of the product.

3. Look at the identifier does not meet the requirements

The national standard stipulates the identification of stone-plastic floor. Generally, the identification of counterfeit or inferior stone-plastic floor is incomplete or does not meet the requirements; even some businesses entrust the production in the form of OEM, and there is no mark on the packaging at all!

4. Check whether the color of the substrate is uniform and whether the texture is rough

Generally, what we can see with the naked eye is white in color, which is brand-new material and good quality; dark gray or black in color is recycled material or a certain proportion of recycled material is added, and the quality is poor. Of course, under the special requirements of some customers, under the premise of ensuring the stability of the product itself, for example, he requires a new material and a certain proportion of toner to make the substrate change from its own pure white to a light gray that looks very textured. Maybe the customer asks me to have a completely white new material, which may be a little gray in the production process. At this time, adding a certain proportion of whitening agent can also meet the customer's needs.

5. From the depth of the lock to work

The workmanship of the lock grooves of the stone-plastic floor, the poor-quality stone-plastic floor is often rough in workmanship. The buckle groove of the lock is relatively shallow, and it is easy for workers to damage the buckle groove during construction or when carrying and disassembling. This leads to an increase in the cost of decoration, and the material loss during decoration is more than 8% higher than the normal material loss.

6. Distinguish from smell

Many merchants will have this question. They say that there is 0 formaldehyde, but it smells. In fact, the quality of the smelt-plastic floor will be a little worse, because its raw material calcium powder is added more, (calcium powder is an industrial raw material, not Natural raw materials), so there will be a little taste, but our stone plastic floor will have no taste, because our floor material has more stone powder and relatively less calcium powder, so it is almost tasteless.

7. Anti-skid and waterproof

The drip test is divided into two aspects: the first is to test whether the locks of the floor are connected to see if there is water leakage; the second is to test the anti-skid performance of the floor. First, take out two lock floors at random, connect them naturally through the locks, and place them flat on the ground. Then put water droplets on the joints, and after standing for 3-5 hours, wipe the water off with a dry rag, separate the two floors, and check whether there are any water marks in the card slot. The stone plastic floor uses polyvinyl chloride material, which does not absorb water, but becomes astringent when it encounters water, so it is non-slip and moisture-proof. When testing slip resistance, it can also be done by dripping water. First put a few drops of water on the floor and rub it with your hands, without slippery feeling, the more astringent the better.

8. Touch

The spc substrate feels delicate and moisturizing. The reclaimed material and the mixed material have a dry hand and no water-moisture feeling. After the two pieces are spliced, check whether the flatness and fit are good. From this aspect, it is also possible to roughly identify whether the floor technology is well-made or not.

9. Judging the quality of the stone plastic floor from the use of raw materials

All good products are based on good raw materials. The raw materials of stone-plastic flooring are mainly calcium powder and PVC powder. In order to reduce costs, many manufacturers use recycled materials instead. Why is it bad to use recycled materials? Because PVC is easy to age, the recycled material used has been used for a certain period of time and has been aged. In the case of mixed use, its lifespan will be shortened. The calcium powder depends on its fineness, which is related to its origin and purity. In general, the whiter the color, the better the purity.

10. The lock is easy to disassemble and replace

This is a great advantage. The traditional floor materials on the market are not very convenient to replace, and even the materials of the entire house have to be pryed off to be replaced.
