PVC flooring is a new type of lightweight floor decoration material that is very popular in the world today, also known as "lightweight flooring". It is mainly made of PVC resin as the main raw material, supplemented with fillers, plasticizers, stabilizers, colorants, and other auxiliary materials, and produced on a sheet-like substrate through coating, rolling, extrusion, or extrusion processes.
PVC flooring has a history of 100 years in Europe and 70 years in Southeast Asia. It is a popular product in Europe, America, Japan, and South Korea. Due to its green, environmentally friendly, and excellent performance characteristics, it has widely replaced ceramic tiles and wooden flooring in developed countries, becoming the preferred flooring material. Since the early 1980s, PVC flooring has entered the Chinese market and has been widely recognized in large and medium-sized cities in China. It is widely used in various indoor places such as homes, hospitals, schools, office buildings, factories, supermarkets, businesses, sports venues, etc. As a substitute for traditional flooring, PVC flooring has quickly gained the favor of users due to its comfortable touch, exquisite appearance, and environmentally friendly and low-carbon characteristics. As the PVC flooring market gradually heats up, major flooring manufacturers have also begun to seize this emerging market.
1. According to structure, it is divided into composite PVC flooring and homogeneous transparent PVC flooring.
Composite PVC flooring refers to a floor with a multi-layer structure, usually composed of 4-7 layers of laminated structure, mainly composed of multi-layer materials such as surface UV treatment layer, color film layer, glass fiber layer, foam or non foam base layer. This type of floor generally has the characteristics of wear resistance, anti slip, antibacterial, stain resistance, and easy cleaning.
The homogeneous transparent PVC flooring material is the same material from top to bottom, with the same color and pattern. The material is mainly composed of PVC and stone powder. This type of floor material has poor stain resistance and requires frequent waxing and maintenance during use.
2. According to installation type, it can be divided into adhesive flooring, lock buckle flooring, and self sinking adsorption flooring.
The installation of adhesive flooring is achieved by sticking PVC flooring to the ground with glue. The installation of lock buckle flooring involves slotting and splicing PVC flooring in the form of lock buckles. The installation of self sinking adsorption flooring is the latest form of pavement, which directly splices PVC flooring flat on the ground without any glue or lock buckle splicing. The principle is that this type of flooring has a large mass, a large friction coefficient at the bottom layer, and a fine groove that can act as a suction cup. The greater the force, the closer it fits with the ground and the less likely it is to shift.
3. According to product formula, it is divided into LVT flooring, SPC flooring, and WPC flooring.
4. Divided into coiled PVC flooring, sheet PVC flooring, and sheet PVC flooring according to their shape.
5. It is divided into commercial PVC flooring, residential PVC flooring, and sports PVC flooring according to their usage.
