Thanks to new technology, the options and possibilities luxury vinyl flooring offers to designers continue to expand. SPC, which stands for Stone Plastic (or Polymer) Composite, features a core that is typically comprised of around 60% calcium carbonate (limestone), polyvinyl chloride, and plasticizers.
The Benefits of Choosing SPC Vinyl Flooring
SPC can be easily installed in two ways, either with glue or with a loose-lay floor. Using newer loose-lay systems makes it possible to use SPC with minimal surface preparation. With this solution, flooring installation costs, as well as installation time, can be reduced.
One of the biggest benefits of choosing SPC vinyl flooring is that it is completely waterproof. Due to its rigid, PVC core layer, these planks can withstand liquids and spills unlike many of the flooring products that it mimics.
Style and Comfort
SPC has a softer surface than other flooring materials such as wood or stone. It is also more comfortable underfoot and sound-reducing, which is a very important trait for many facilities.
Choosing SPC can help your facility earn LEED certification, as many of the materials used in its production are those of renewable products, recyclable content, and low-emitting materials.
Want flooring that is waterproof, scratch, stain a fade-resistant, yet won’t break the bank? Look no further. SPC vinyl flooring is generally less expensive than the luxury floors that it mimics such as hardwood or stone.
SPC never has to be sanded or sealed, making it much easier to maintain than other luxury floors. Since it is completely waterproof, just grab a damp mop and you are all set!
