Trioflor Rigid core luxu
ry vinyl flooring, also known as SPC Flooring, is the most durable waterproof vinyl flooring option on the market. It has a similar structure to WPC, but it has an ultra-tough core, which is the origin of the name "rigid core".
● What dose SPC mean
SPC is an industry term for Stone Plastic Composite or Stone Polymer Composite (these terms are used interchangeably). It describes the ultra-tough core of a rigid core luxury vinyl floor. The stone-plastic composite material makes the core layer almost indestructible, maintaining its shape even on uneven sub-floors.
This means that you can install SPC rigid core luxury vinyl flooring on almost any existing (hard surface) subfloor at any level, and it is suitable for any traffic volume.
SPC Flooring usually consists layers
UV Coating: Protects the surface by blocking UV rays, thereby maintaining the strength, color and appearance of the underlying material
Wear layer: The wear layer is a transparent coating, which mainly provides good scratch resistance, abrasion resistance and stain resistance for the SPC floor
Decorative layer: Also called color film. Determine the appearance of the floor, such as color patterns, etc.
Base layer: Mixing inorganic lime minerals, PVC composite materials, calcium carbonate and stabilizers and other raw materials to provide a stable waterproof effect
Anti-slip layer: The main function is to increase the softness of the floor, create high-quality moisture-proof, sound effects, and make the feet feel more comfortable when stepping on it

Disadvantages of spc flooring:
1. Thinner materials don't provide as much cushioning underfoot compared to hardwood or laminate.
2. Need to be applied to a flat floor. The thicker the plank, the more forgiving it is on uneven surfaces.
3. Cannot be installed in outdoor spaces.
4. Not Fade Resistant - If you put your SPC in a place with plenty of natural light, it will fade over time. We do not recommend using it for solariums.
Application of spc flooring:
SPC is an extremely cost-effective flooring option Suitable for basements, secondary holiday homes or rental homes due to its waterproof properties, also great for normal wear and tear residential main floors in kitchens, living spaces or bathrooms.
Selection of spc flooring:
The thicker the plank, the more stable and comfortable it is to walk. With that comes a price increase, but so does the warranty. As thickness increases, it becomes more forgiving when installed on slightly uneven surfaces, we always recommend placing the SPC on a surface that is as flat and free of debris as possible.

Materials for the Stone Plastic Composite rigid core flooring are mixed together then super-heated to A) eliminate any moisture in the mix, and B) ensure the stone powder and polymers are properly combined. This ensures even performance across the entirety of each plank or tile.
