Do You Know Rigid Core SPC Flooring07/12/2020
Rigid core SPC flooring has been a popular choice for flooring in the United States for many years, and it still accounts for about 15% of annual flooring spending across the country. When most people talk about rigid core SPC flooring, they usually consider sheet flooring. However, there are other forms of flooring made of vinyl, such as tiles and planks. Because they are all made from vinyl, they share some common features and have many of the same advantages and disadvantages.
Affordability: the main advantage of ethylene is its endurance. While it can mimic high-end flooring in appearance, rigid core SPC flooring is relatively cheap and can be installed for as little as $5 per square foot.
Wide choice of colors: all rigid core SPC flooring is in a wide range of colors, making it adaptable and easy to adapt to almost any decoration.
Quick and convenient installation: can be installed in brick and board, as well as a bedsheet, easy to install. Floor tiles are usually in 12-inch squares, so they are easy to handle and both sides of the tiles and planks are often made of "peel and stick" backing, which means they are easy for owners to lay down themselves (save money for professional installation).
Moisture resistance: rigid core SPC flooring is completely waterproof, so it can be used in homes, including the main floor, upper and lower grades, almost anywhere. It works, especially in bathrooms and kitchens, where water often ends up on the floor.
Easy to clean: water only needs beads on the surface, so it's easy to sweep. In addition, regular sweeping and occasional wet mopping is all that needs to keep a glue floor clean and bright all the time.
Durability: most rigid core SPC flooring has a "wear-resistant layer" (sometimes up to three) on the vinyl itself, so it can withstand normal traffic wear.
Comfort: vinyl is a kind of "elastic" floor that you can stand on for hours when you walk on it, making it a good work platform.
Petroleum products: ethylene is made from petroleum, so from the environmental point of view, because it is from a nonrenewable resource, this is a bad product manufacturing.
No skin changes: Although the wear-resistant layer is designed to protect the floor, after a few years of traffic, the surface will begin to show signs of scratches and wear. Unlike wood, rigid core SPC flooring surfaces cannot have a new finish application.
Fading: Vinyl can't stand up, ultraviolet radiation makes patterns and colors that are exposed to the sun for a long time, and the vinyl base plate will begin to fade.
Difficult or impossible to repair: Although ethylene is durable, it is difficult to repair if it is not damaged. Vinyl tiles or panels can be removed and installed with a new one, but a piece of rigid core SPC flooring needs to be replaced.
Surface irregularity: over time some rigid core SPC flooring develops edges or bumps along seams.
