The difference between WPC floor and PVC floor is material and performance.

- May 12, 2018-

At present, there are a lot of floor types on the market, like the WPC floor and the PVC floor are close to two kinds. In order to make it convenient for everyone to distinguish, we compare the characteristics of the WPC floor with the PVC floor, and the result is very obvious.


In fact, the difference between the WPC floor and the PVC floor is mainly manifested in two aspects, one is their material, the other is their performance. WPC floor is a new type of composite material, which mainly uses polyethylene, polypropylene and polyvinyl chloride instead of common resin adhesives, and mixed with more than 50% wood flour, rice husk, straw and other waste plant fibers into new wood materials, and then by extrusion, molding, injection molding and other plastic processing technology, produced sheet. Or profile.


WPC floor is based on high density polyethylene and wood fiber, which determines its own characteristics of plastic and wood. For example, it has similar processing properties with wood. It can be sawed, PEG, planing and can be done with woodworking apparatus, and its grip strength is obviously better than that of his synthetic material, and its mechanical properties are better than wood. Material Science。


As the WPC floor contains plastic, it has good elastic modulus. In addition, because of the inner fiber and fully mixed with plastic, it has physical and mechanical properties such as compression and bending resistance to hardwood, and its durability is obviously better than that of ordinary wood. Of course, water resistance, corrosion resistance, long service life and other characteristics.


In fact, the biggest advantage of WPC flooring is to turn waste into treasure. It can also be recycled by 100%. It is a truly green product. In addition, it can also make arbitrary shape and size according to the needs, so as to meet the application needs of different occasions.


And PVC floor is a plastic floor, it has good tensile, bending, compression and impact resistance, but also has excellent electrical insulation performance, but its application range is narrow, the use of temperature is generally between -15~55 degrees. Whether WPC floor or PVC floor, each has its own characteristics. We should choose according to the actual situation, so as to meet the corresponding ground standards.
