What Is SPC Flooring?
Luxury vinyl plank or tile flooring with a stone-plastic composite core is known as SPC flooring. It is made in four or five layers and is sometimes known as rigid core or engineered vinyl flooring, depending on whether foam or cork is used for the backing. The backing is frequently applied for insulation and comfort.

Manufacturers combine stabilisers, polyvinyl chloride, and limestone powder to create the SPC core, which is normally between 3.2 and 7 millimetres thick. Stone is more dense than wood, hence SPC is thinner than standard WPC. SPC flooring are enduring because of the limestone core; average guarantee terms range from 25 to 30 years.

Pros and Cons of SPC Flooring
Pros Cons
Easy to install: SPC floorboards float over the subfloor and snap together similarly to laminate floorboards. No nails or glue are necessary.

Durable: An UV light- and scratch-resistant wear layer shields the design layer from harm.

Comfortable: The majority of SPC flooring planks and tiles come with some heat and sound insulation as well as an underlayment cushion for comfortable walking.

Lots of design choices: Designs include geometric patterns reminiscent of vintage linoleum and vinyl sheet flooring, as well as imitations of several kinds of hardwood and stone floors.
Undeniably imitation: Regardless of how lifelike the design layer is, SPC flooring still seems to be vinyl. That's not a big deal for artificial stone or geometric patterns, but a wood pattern will never resemble actual wood.

Colors fade: Although SPC flooring has a UV protection coating, it eventually ages in direct sunlight.

Not scratch-proof: The wear layer is not scratch-proof; it is only scratch-resistant. It ultimately appears weathered from constant human and animal traffic.

Can’t be restored: You cannot repair your SPC floor after it has lost its gloss. There is just one choice: replacement.
