In our daily life, we usually see vinyl flooring. But hardly do we know the details. In this passage, we will briefly introduce the three kinds of vinyl flooring including PVC, SPC and WPC.

First of all, we need to learn about vinyl flooring. Vinyl flooring has been a popular flooring choice in the United States for many years, and it still accounts for about 15 percent of the annual flooring expenditures nationwide. When most people talk about vinyl flooring, they usually consider sheet flooring. However, there are other forms of vinyl material flooring, such as tiles and wood. Because they are all made from vinyl, they share some common features and have many of the same advantages and disadvantages.


(1) Wide Range of Color Choices

Vinyl flooring has a wide range of colors to choose from, making it adaptable to almost any decoration.

(2) Quick and Easy to Install

Vinyl is easy to install. Vinyl tiles are usually in 12-inch squares, so they are easy to handle and install, which saves on installation costs.

(3) Moisture Resistance

Vinyl flooring is completely waterproof, so it can be used in the home, including the main layer, the upper layer and the lower layer, which means almost anywhere. Its working principle makes it especially suitable for bathrooms and kitchens.

(4) Easy to Clean

Water drops only on the surface of the vinyl floor, so it's easy to clean. In addition, regular cleaning and occasional wet mopping can keep the vinyl floor clean and bright.

(5) Durability

Most vinyl flooring has a wear layer, sometimes up to three, so it withstands normal wear and tear.

(6) Comfort

Ethylene is a resilient floor, which means it's soft and comfortable.


(1) Petroleum Products

Ethylene is made from petroleum. So from an environmental point of view, this is a bad product because oil is a non-renewable resource.

(2) Fading

Vinyl is not very stable. Exposure to sunlight and ultraviolet light for a long time causes the pattern and color of the alkenyl floor to begin to fade.

(3) Difficult to Repair

Although ethylene is long-lasting, it is difficult to repair once it is damaged. The damaged parts of vinyl tiles or sheets can be removed and replaced, but the entire vinyl floor needs to be replaced as a whole.

(4) Surface Irregularity

Some vinyl floor edges or seams will curl over time.Secondly, we will talk about the three kinds of vinyl flooring.

1. PVC Flooring

PVC flooring is a kind of light ground adornment material that is very popular in the world nowadays. The application range of this kind of floor is very extensive, including the home, hospital, school, office building, factory, supermarket and many other places. PVC flooring is pointed to the floor that uses PVC as material. PVC flooring is the most commonly used and popular floor in soft quality floor. As a result of PVC flooring superior performance and environmental protection, it has generally replaced tile and wood floor in developed countries, becoming the first choice of ground decoration materials.

2. SPC Flooring

The main raw material of SPC is polyvinyl chloride resin. The producing process of SPC flooring is to make SPC substrate extruded extruder combined with t-mold, and then three or four rollers calender is used to heat PVC wear-resistant layer, PVC color film and SPC substrate for one-time bonding and embossing. No glue is used in the production process.

3. WPC Flooring

WPC replaces the common resin adhesive with polyethylene, polypropylene and polyvinyl chloride, and mixes with more than 50% wood powder, rice husks, straw and other waste plant fibers to form new wood materials, and then produces plates or profiles through extrusion, molding, injection molding and other plastic processing technologies.WPC flooring is mainly used in building materials, furniture, logistics and packaging industries.

Totally speaking, problems like fading, curling and difficult to repair might occur to the vinyl floor over time. 

However, considering about the advantages of vinyl flooring, vinyl flooring is worth trying for those who pursue for easy installation, relatively durability and easy to keep clean. And the three kinds of vinyl flooring all have their own features. So, you can choose the specific one according to your own needs.
