Comparison of the SPC Flooring with other materials

Comparison of SPC flooring with other materials, Commonly used realistic wood look designs of the Flooring which can be divided into 4 types according to the materials used for the production.

Floor SPC compared to other materials

1. The Laminated Wood Flooring is made of HDF or high-density fiberboard, which is made of recycled hardwood. The surface of the flooring is made from the Decorative Paper which has the overlaying coating to resist the scratch and the humidity on the surface of the laminated Flooring.

2. The Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) are made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) with the thickness of 2mm and 3 mm for the wood layer and there is the Wear Layer to resist the scratch and the impact.

3. The SPC flooring with the Click lock system.The SPC stands for Stone Polymer Composite, a limestone core combined with PVC dust and a stabilizer. As a result, it’s denser due to the core being 60-70% limestone with a 30% PVC core fused together.  Often referred to as rigid core, SPC is 10X more impact resistant.  It’s also more stable to sunlight, can be installed in sunrooms, and has better scratch resistance. The SPC Flooring is water resistant and moisture resistant. The SPC Flooring is not shrinking and not expandable.

The elastic SPC core is finished with a decorative and protective UV film to create a beautiful and strong flooring. The SPC Flooring will have the Wear Layer to resist the scratch and the impact as same as the LVT.

4. The engineered wood flooring is constructed of layers of both hardwood and plywood, where solid hardwood is a solid piece of wood with no layers. The engineered wood flooring will be coated with the protection film from the factory. The engineered wood flooring is scratch resistant and impact resistant. It looks beautiful because of the natural realistic wood look designs.

Comparison of SPC flooring with other materials, Comparison among the advantages of each type of the realistic wood look designs of the Flooring

  • Comparison of the Scratch resistance
    • The Laminated Wood Flooring and the Engineered wood Flooring will be coated with the layer which can resist less scratch  than the SPC Flooring
    • The SPC Flooring will have more scratch resistance than the Laminated Wood Flooring and the Engineered Wood Flooring. The SPC Flooring is suitable for the residential buildings. The SPC Flooring can resist heavy scratches for example the scratches when you move or pull the chairs or the tables on the floor.
    • The Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) is more flexible and can resist the heavy impact and the scratches at the maximum level. It is suitable for all kinds of works.

Floor SPC compared to other stuff

Comparison of Water resistance and Moisture Resistance.

    • The Laminated Wood Flooring and the Engineered Wood Flooring have low water resistance and low moisture resistance. The water and the moisture can be temporarily stagnant on the surface of the Laminated Wood Flooring and the Engineered Wood Flooring. The Laminated Wood Flooring and the Engineered Wood Flooring can be swollen if the water and the moisture get into the jointing of each piece of the floor. Consequently, the Laminated Wood Flooring and the Engineered Wood Flooring can be tipped at the jointing of each piece of the floor.
    • The Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) and the SPC Flooring can resist the water and the moisture for 100%  because of the main component of the material is the PVC.

How is differnt of the SPC Flooring with other materials

Comparison of the ease of the installation

    • The Laminated Wood Flooring and the SPC Flooring are easy for the installation. The installation can be easily and quickly made because of the click lock system. The installation of the Laminated Wood Flooring and the SPC Flooring can be made on the form to level up the floor. The installation can be done for both of the new installation and the installation on the old floors.
    • The installation of the Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) can be made easily and quickly on the floor of the ground floor. The installation of the Luxury Vinyl Tiles can be made and fastened by the glue. The difference between the installation of the Luxury Vinyl Tiles and the SPC Flooring is the checking of the smooth level of the floor. IF the surface of the floor is not smooth, after the installation of the Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT), it is possible that the Luxury Vinyl Tiles Flooring can be tipped and not smooth. The bonding of the Luxury Vinyl Tiles will not be strong enough if the surface of the floor before the installation is dusty and not so strong and smooth.
    • The installation of the Enginerred Wood Flooring with the click lock system will be similar to the installation of the Laminated Wood Flooring as well as the installation of the SPC Flooring.  The difficult part is that the installation of the Engineered Wood Flooring requires only the specialized handyman to install. The fastening of the Engineered Wood Flooring with the Latex must be done perfectly in order to have the smooth Engineered Wood Flooring. Since the Engineered Wood Flooring is made from the hardwood and the plywood, the tongue and the groove of click lock system cannot be closed tightly which is different from the click lock system of the Laminated Wood Flooring and the SPC Flooring.
