What is the difference between WPC and PVC flooring?

Edit: Denny 2020-01-16 Mobile

  WPC refers to wood plastic composite floor, wood plastic composite. May be made of PVC / PE / PP + wood powder.

  PVC is polyvinyl chloride plastic, and ordinary PVC flooring may not add wood flour.

  Installation and construction: WPC floor installation is simple and convenient, and does not require particularly complicated construction processes, which greatly saves installation time and costs; PVC floor installation is very fast, no cement mortar is required, and the ground conditions are good Special environmentally friendly adhesive for bonding, but high requirements for construction foundation.

  PVC floor is afraid of cigarette butt burns and sharp tools; WPC floor has good fire resistance, can effectively flame retardant, fire rating reached B1 level, self-extinguishing in case of fire, and does not produce any toxic gas.

  PVC flooring is a non-natural material, it refers to the floor produced with polyvinyl chloride material. Specifically, it is produced by using polyvinyl chloride and its copolymer resin as main raw materials, adding auxiliary materials, and applying the coating process or calendering, extrusion, or extrusion process on a continuous sheet-like substrate. WPC flooring made of wood-plastic composite material is a new type of high-performance, high-value-added composite material that is produced by using different methods of composite with various plastics after proper processing.

  PVC floor has good thermal conductivity, uniform heat dissipation, and small thermal expansion coefficient, which is relatively stable. WPC floor thermal poor conductor, if the external ambient temperature changes, then the surface and internal heating uneven, it is easy to cause expansion and contraction deformation, etc., under long-term action will shorten the life of wood-plastic flooring.
