First of all, let's talk about what LVT flooring, SPC flooring and WPC flooring? 

To make clear what LVT, SPC and WPC flooring are, we have to start with PVC floor. PVC floor is a new type of light floor decoration material, also known as "light floor ". It is a popular product in Europe, America, Asia, Japan and South Korea. It has been popular abroad and widely used in families, hospitals, schools, office buildings, factories, public places, supermarkets, businesses and other places. PVC flooring refers to the floor made of polyvinyl chloride material, specifically using polyvinyl chloride and its copolymer resin as the main raw materials, adding fillers, plasticizers, stabilizers, colorants and other ingredients, it is produced by coating process or rolling process on sheet continuous substrate.

The PVC flooring, commonly known as plastic floor, is a large category. The floor made of PVC can be generally called PVC flooring. LVT, SPC, WPC, these new floors belong to the PVC floor category, they just add different other materials, thus forming an independent sub-category.

The market retail price of LVT flooring ranges from tens to 200 yuan. Previously, it was mainly used for projects decoration. Because it has high requirements on the ground, it needs professionals to lay it, so the cost is relatively high, it is usually suitable for large-area laying.

WPC flooring belongs to semi-rigid sheet plastic flooring, commonly known as wood plastic floor, because the early WPC flooring added wood powder. From the point of view of comfort, WPC flooring is close to the traditional solid wood flooring, some people in the industry call it "gold-grade flooring", but its price is relatively high, usually 200-400 yuan per square meter and it can’t be recycled and reused.

The full name of SPC flooring is stone plastic composite, which is called RVP floor in Europe and America. It belongs to rigid plastic floor and can also bend, but compared with LVT flooring, the bending degree is less. It is very popular in Europe, America and Southeast Asia. Features of LVT flooring and WPC flooring and with excellent waterproof and moisture-proof performance, easy installation, it is very suitable for DIY, and the laying time is largely saved. SPC flooring is very cost-effective. The retail price is usually 80 yuan to 300 yuan per square meter. It has many advantages, such as high environmental protection, mothproof, fireproof, good sound absorption effect, formaldehyde free, no heavy metal, benzene and other harmful substances. The disadvantages of SPC flooring is high density, heavy weight, the transportation cost is relatively high and there are certain requirements for ground flatness.

In recent years, LVT, SPC and WPC flooring industry has developed rapidly. From the export data of customs and the domestic sales data of these three types of flooring, it has proved the future trend of new flooring. With its superior performance, SPC flooring has gradually replaced ceramic tiles and wood flooring in developed countries, becoming the first choice of floor decoration materials, Therefore, SPC flooring is more favored by people, and the development prospect is also broader!
