SPC floor is made of polyvinyl chloride (divided into pure new materials, mixed materials, and recycled materials, which will be used below), calcium powder (different grades and stone powder grades) and solvents (some use chemical grades and some use plant solvents. Food grade ) After high temperature rolling and hot compressing color film, pvc wear-resistant layer, after cooling treatment, it goes through uv process (determines the anti-fouling performance of the floor and the non-discoloration performance under sunlight and ultraviolet radiation), and finally the floor cutting and grooving process (partially determines the floor lock strength). , bearing tension), and finally packaged in a box (whether there is damage during transportation). So how to identify the pros and cons of SPC floor? Let's find out together.
1. Look at the color of the SPC floor
It mainly depends on the color of the "spc substrate". The color of the single material is beige, the mixed material is gray, cyan and white, and the recycled material is gray-black and black. The cost can be divided into many levels.
2. The feel of SPC floor
The spc substrate feels delicate and moisturizing. The reclaimed material and the mixed material have a dry hand and no water-moisture feeling. After splicing the two pieces, touch to check whether the flatness and fit are good.
3. Smell the smell of SPC floor
There are some very poor ones that will have a little odor. Most of them contain recycled materials and mixtures, and they can still be odorless.
4. Light (light transmittance) of SPC floor
The mobile phone flashlight is placed against the floor, with good light transmittance, and the admixtures and recycled materials are opaque. or poor light transmission.
5. Measure the thickness of SPC floor
If possible, it is best to use a caliper or a micrometer to measure the thickness of the floor. The actual thickness is about 0.2mm larger than the marked thickness, which is the normal range. For example, if a regular manufacturer has marked a thickness of 4.0mm according to the production standard, it should be measured with a caliper or a micrometer at 4.2mm. About mm, because the thickness of the wear-resistant layer and the UV layer is added, if the actual measurement is 4.0mm, you actually buy a thickness of 3.7~3.8mm, which is commonly known as cutting corners. We can imagine how much this manufacturer can do in other links that we can't see.
6. Break the SPC floor lock
The female buckle on the edge of the SPC flooring (that is, the part of the lock that leaks a lot), break the lock with force, and the poor quality will break with less force.
7. Tear the SPC floor hard
This is not easy to operate. It is necessary to collect a few samples from several merchants, destroy and comb the corners, tear apart the color filter layer and the spc substrate, and check the bonding strength between the color filter layer and the substrate. This decision Whether it is easy to peel in the next few years of use. The bonding strength of pure new material is the largest, followed by others. It doesn't matter if you can't operate it. Basically, it is not bad to judge the high-quality merchant's product through the above steps.
