WPC refers to a wood-plastic composite floor.

WPC uses polyethylene, polypropylene and polyvinyl chloride instead of common resin adhesives, and mixes with more than 50% wood flour, rice husk, straw and other waste plant fibers to form new wood materials. Then the sheet or profile is produced by extrusion, moulding, injection moulding and other plastic processing technology. It is mainly used in building materials, furniture, logistics packaging and other industries.

1. Good machinability.

Wood-plastic composites contain plastics and fibers. Therefore, they have similar processing properties to wood. They can be sawed, nailed and planed. It can be accomplished by woodworking tools. The nail force is obviously superior to other synthetic materials. Mechanical properties are superior to wood. Nailing force is generally three times that of wood and five times that of particleboard.

2. Good strength performance.

Wood-plastic composites contain plastics, so they have good elastic modulus. In addition, due to the inclusion of fibers and the full mixing of plastics, it has the same physical and mechanical properties as hardwood, such as compression and bending resistance. Its durability is obviously superior to that of ordinary wood. Surface hardness is high, usually 2 to 5 times that of wood.

3. It has the characteristics of water resistance, corrosion resistance and long service life.

Compared with wood, wood-plastic materials and products have the characteristics of acid and alkali resistance, water resistance, corrosion resistance, non-breeding bacteria, not easy to moth, not easy to grow fungi and so on. Moreover, it has a long service life of up to 50 years.

WPC Floor Composition

WPC floor is composed of PVC wear-resistant layer, printed layer, semi-rigid PVC intermediate layer, WPC core layer and backing layer.

Application Range Of WPC Flooring

From the scope of people's activities and the amount of exercise, the reinforced wood board is not suitable for the pavement of public places. The excessive amount of exercise and the excessive bearing capacity are mostly unsustainable for the reinforced floor. It is easy to crack. WPC composite flooring has super locking force, which is very suitable for paving in public environment. You can jump anyway without trepidation.Besides, WPC floor has the characteristics of SPC flooring, such as environmental protection.

WPC vinyl material flooring can be widely used in the bedroom, hall, kitchen and bathroom floor paving. It can also be used in office buildings, libraries, museums, shopping malls, restaurants, factories, schools, hospitals and other ground paving. It can be laid on the ground of swimming pool, sauna bathroom and basement, which are easy to produce warm vapor and fog.

Introduction of WPC Floor Paving Process

1. Preparing tools for product laying: wooden ruler, triangular ruler, saw blade, artistic knife, leather hammer, 2-meter ruler, triangular ruler, etc.

2. Place the selected striped locking floor in the open space. Then according to the middle straight line or side straight line, lay with 90 degree right angle line. First, fix the first lock floor A side face to the lock surface.

3. The front side of A is connected with the lock of the front side of B. The front edge of A is flattened in a straight line and flat on the ground. Then the front edge of B is inserted into the A lock at an angle of 35 degrees. After using the prepared wooden straight size bracket, the floor of B lock is flattened by tapping the seam tightly, and the operation is completed.

4. Lock floor doors and edge seams are similar to wood floor laying. Routine pressing strips are used for doors and special sticking strips are used for upper wall edges.

5. After the completion of the laying of the locking floor, it should be connected by buckles, front and rear buckles, both horizontal and vertical buckles. The floor of each room is an integral whole, and there won't be any cracks in the long run.

WPC flooring is soft and elastic. It has good elastic recovery under the impact of heavy objects. Its comfortable feel of feet is called "floor soft gold". Now more and more people like it. There are more and more flooring companies in the market, we must choose carefully.
