Overview of Plastic Flooring

PVC (poly-vinyl chloride), currently known as PVC / LVT / LVP / WPC / SPC / Vinylfloor / vinyl plank. The main component is PVC material. PVC flooring originated in Europe and America. It is very popular in Europe, America and Asia Pacific. China has more commercial flooring with 2.0MM, and SPC and WPC flooring are also gradually popularized.

Five Common Expression Methods For Plastic Flooring

1. PVC: poly vinyl chloride,

2. LVT: luxury vinyl tile,

3. LVP: luxury vinyl plank

4. Vinyl floor

5. Vinyl plank

6. WPC:wood plastic composite

7. SPC:stone plastic compositer, also called RVP (rigid vinyl plank), rigid plastic floor.

Classification of Plastic Flooring

From the morphological point of view, it is divided into coil floor and sheet floor: LVT, WPC floor belongs to semi-rigid sheet plastic floor, and SPC (RVP) floor belongs to hard sheet floor. At present, there are three main types of LVT flooring: vinyl locking, dry back, loose laying. From another perspective, PVC flooring can be divided into: Dry Back, Click and Loose lay. At the same time, WPC (wood plastic flooring) and SPC (stone plastic flooring) are also in the active promotion and high-speed development stage in the domestic and foreign markets.

The 6 Major Advantages of LVT Floor

1. Green environmental protection

The main raw material for the production of PVC flooring is polyvinyl chloride. Polyvinyl chloride is an environmentally friendly and non-toxic renewable resource. It has been used in people's daily lives, such as tableware and medical infusion bags, etc., and its environmental protection is no need to be worried.

2. Super Wear-Resistant

The surface of the PVC floor has a special PVC wear-resistant layer, and its wear-resistant number can reach 300,000 rpm. According to the different thickness of wear resistance, it can be used for 5-10 years under normal conditions. The thickness and quality of wear-resistant layer directly determine the use time of PVC floor. The standard test results show that the 0.55mm thick wear-resistant layer can be used for more than 5 years under normal conditions. The 0.7mm thick wear-resistant layer is enough for more than 10 years, so it is super wear-resistant. Because of its superior wear resistance, PVC flooring is becoming more and more popular in hospitals, schools, office buildings, shopping malls, supermarkets, transportation and other places with large flow of people. (For the wear resistance of the wear layer, it is mainly used as an indicator by measuring the loss, that is, the quality reduction.)

3. High Elasticity And Super Shock Resistance

The PVC floor is soft in texture, so it has good elasticity. It has good elastic recovery under the impact of heavy objects. At the same time, PVC floor has strong impact resistance, and it has strong elastic recovery for heavy impact damage and will not cause damage. The excellent PVC floor can minimize the damage of the ground to the human body and can disperse the impact on the foot. The latest research data shows that after the excellent PVC floor is paved in a space with a large flow of people, the rate of falling and injury of people is nearly 70% lower than other floors.

4. Fire Retardant

The qualified fireproof index of PVC floor can reach B1 level, and the B1 grade means that the fire performance is very good, second only to stone. 

5. Easy Maintenance

The maintenance of the PVC flooring is very convenient, if the floor is dirty, wiped it with a mop. If you want to keep the floor lasting, you only need to do regular waxing maintenance, and the maintenance frequency is much lower than that of laminate flooring.

6. waterproof and moisture proof

Since the main component of PVC flooring is vinyl resin and has no affinity with water, it is naturally not afraid of water. As long as it is not soaked for a long time, it will not be damaged; and it will not be mildewed due to high humidity.
