If you are looking for flooring options, you may come across WPC and SPC flooring. Many people are confused about those two, so we decided to present this knowledge for everyone's preference.
WPC products represent the class of rigid vinyl flooring products with an expanded or foamed polymer core.
Wood Plastic Composite is made from PVC, limestone, foaming agents, inert ingredients. Laid down in powder form and pressed and heated to expand the polymer.
The core material is waterproof, rigid, and dimensionally stable. Approximately 50/50 PVC & Limestone.
SPC products refer to the class of rigid vinyl flooring products with a solid polymer core.
Solid Polymer Core (SPC) is characterized by the solid nature of the core, regardless of material ingredients.
Most SPC labeled products have a similar assembly: Wear Layer, Print Film, Core, Underlayment.
WPC and SPC are different in many ways. Let's check out one by one.
WPC: soft touch
Those who need sound insulation should choose WPC instead of SPC vinyl flooring. WPC excels in this insulation. Its thickness enables it to absorb sound. For this reason, it will not make any sound when you walk on it. If you step on the SPC floor, you will definitely make a walking sound.
WPC: WPC products are considered very durable.
SPC: SPC products are more durable than WPC products due to their higher density.
Both WPC and SPC are stable and can withstand various weather conditions without worrying about temperature fluctuations or moisture exposure.
WPC: WPC materials can be used in any field of wood processing, such as WPC indoor doors, skirting lines, cabinets, wardrobes, exterior wall hanging panels, ceilings, decorative wall panels, outdoor floors, guardrail posts, plastic steel pavilions, garden guardrails, Balcony guardrails, garden fences, leisure benches, tree ponds, flower stands, flower box air conditioners, air conditioner shields, shutters, road signs, transportation pallets, etc.
SPC: SPC is generally used for indoor flooring.
WPC usually is more pricy than SPC.
SPC core is generally 80% limestone 20% PVC polymer and is not “foamed”; therefore has a higher core density, creating a more solid underfoot feel.
WPC is generally 50% limestone 50% PVC polymer expanded polymer core creates a more comfortable underfoot feel.
We started the WPC business in 2007, and it's been more than a decade now. We have invented many patented products in the past fifteen years, including no gap WPC decking, 600*600mm decking tile, slat wall fence, wall cladding, WPC gate, and adjustable pedestal system, etc. Welcome to contact us anytime for further questions.
