Differences between the SPC floors of different companies
Are there differences between the SPC floors of different companies?
Today, I will take you to understand what is the difference between XR FLOOR SPC lock floors at different prices in the market.
The XR FLOOR SPC lock floor is made of polyvinyl chloride (divided into pure new materials, mixed materials, recycled materials), calcium powder (different powder grades) and solvents (some use chemical grades and some use vegetable solvents food grades) High temperature rolling and hot compressing color film, PVC wear-resistant layer, after cooling treatment, it goes through UV process (determines the anti-fouling performance of the floor and the non-discoloration performance under sunlight and ultraviolet radiation), and finally the floor cutting and grooving process (partially determines the floor lock strength, load-carrying tensile force) , and finally boxed and packaged (for damage in transit).
4 easy points for customers to identify SPC floors.
1) Touch the substrate floor.
The virgin material SPC substrate feels delicate and moisturizing. The reclaimed material and the mixed material have a dry hand and no water-moisture feeling. After the two pieces are spliced, check whether the flatness and fit are good.
2) Feel the smell.
There are some very poor ones that will have a little odor. Most of them contain recycled materials and mixtures, and they can still be odorless.
3) Pay attention to transparency.
Use the mobile phone flashlight to illuminate the floor, the floor of pure new material has good light transmission, and the floor of mixed material and recycled material is not light, or the light transmission is very poor.
4) Test the lock.
The part of the floor edge buckle (that is, the part where the buckle leaks out a lot). Break the lock, the poor quality ones will be broken just by gently breaking, and the flooring made of virgin materials are not easy to break.
3 more points to identify SPC floors.
1) Look at the color of the substrate.
The color of the pure material is beige, the mixed material is gray, cyan and white, and the recycled material is gray-black and black. This cost can be divided into many levels.
2) Measuring thickness.
If possible, it is best to use a caliper or a micrometer to measure the thickness of the floor. The actual thickness is about 0.2mm more than the marked thickness, which is the normal range.
3) Partial damage and tear of the color filter layer and the SPC substrate.
This is not easy to operate, you need to collect a few samples from several merchants, destroy and comb the corners, tear apart the color filter layer and the SPC substrate, and check the bonding strength between the color filter layer and the substrate, this can be Decide if peeling is likely to occur with use for years to come. The bonding strength of pure new material is the largest, followed by others. It doesn’t matter if it can’t be operated. Basically, it is not bad to judge the high-quality merchant’s product through the appeal steps.
In conclusion，XR FLOOR SPC flooring that made of virgin materials is better than others. But different people have different needs，you don't need to choose the best, but you should choose the most suitable one.
