The waterproof core is the star of the show for both WPC flooring and rigid core flooring. A WPC core is made from wood plastic composite. The core contains an added foaming agent to increase resilience and comfort.

Meanwhile an SPC core is made from stone plastic composite. The stone is stiffer, sturdier and less resilient. The SPC has no foaming agent added, giving it a stronger, more robust core.

Because SPC is so durable, unbending, and virtually indestructible it’s often used for high-traffic commercial spaces. That rigid core also makes it less susceptible to dents, and that’s always a plus in areas with lots of heavy furniture or traffic.

If you were to compare these different options to different kinds of carpet, WPC flooring is like a plush, luxurious home carpet, while SPC rigid core is more like a commercial carpet. One is more comfortable, the other is more durable, and they both do their jobs really well.
