When it comes to luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring, you may have come across the terms WPC and SPC. But what do these acronyms mean and how do they compare to regular LVP?
WPC stands for wood plastic composite. It is a type of LVP that is made of a mixture of wood pulp and plastic, typically polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The wood pulp provides a natural feel, while the plastic makes the flooring more durable and resistant to moisture and temperature changes.
SPC, on the other hand, stands for stone plastic composite. It is a type of LVP that is made of a mixture of natural limestone powder and PVC. The limestone provides a more rigid and stable core, while the PVC gives the flooring a realistic and durable surface.
Both WPC and SPC are considered high-performance alternatives to regular LVP, offering enhanced durability and resistance to moisture and temperature changes. However, there are some key differences between the two.
WPC is typically thicker and softer than SPC, making it more comfortable to walk on, making it a good choice for homes.
SPC, on the other hand, is thinner and harder than WPC, making it more stable and easier product to install for most DIYers. it can be a good choice for high traffic spaces or commercial projects.
