There is little doubt that Stone Plastic Composite (SPC) flooring is emerging as one of the most popular flooring categories today. But what is SPC and what is the reason behind that popularity? Here are a few answers to some key questions.
What is SPC?
SPC is a composite material that does not contain any wood. It is waterproof, rigid and stable. SPC products are commonly referred to as enhanced vinyl plank, luxury vinyl flooring or waterproof vinyl.
Is SPC better than laminate?
The biggest advantage of SPC is that it's waterproof and appropriate for areas where laminate shouldn’t be used – bathrooms, for example. In addition, the wear layer of SPC offers more cushion and absorbs sound to make a quieter floor.
How is SPC different from LVT?
This biggest difference between SPC and LVT is that SPC is waterproof.
It can also be laid over most subfloors with little preparation. Unlike traditional vinyl floor that will highlight any unevenness present in the subfloor, the rigid core of SPC flooring allows for longer and wider format options so you don't have to worry when installing over cracks or divots in subfloors.
