PVC floor is a new kind of lightweight ground decoration material, which is also very popular in the world. It is also called lightweight material". Is a kind of popular in Europe and Asia, Japan and South Korea products, popular abroad, from the beginning of 80s to enter the Chinese market, it has been widely accepted in the domestic large and medium-sized city, is widely used, such as families, hospitals, schools, factories, office buildings, public places, supermarkets, business, etc. place. "PVC floor" means the floor made of PVC material. Specifically to the polyvinyl chloride and its copolymerization resin as the main raw material, filler, plasticizer, stabilizer, coloring agent and other accessories, in the continuous sheet substrate, the coating process or by rolling or extrusion process and.
"PVC floors, plastic floors, stone floors, rubber floors, linen floors, anti-static floors," the relationship and distinction between the main:
Stone plastic flooring is a name in China, referring to the PVC sheet flooring, PVC flooring sheet because the main raw material is natural stone powder, the wear-resistant layer is PVC material, so called "stone plastic floor" or "stone plastic floor tile".
Plastic flooring, PVC sports flooring, PVC plastic flooring, PVC plastic flooring are actually not standard names, but we can understand them as PVC floors.
Rubber flooring and PVC flooring are two entirely different concepts. Rubber floors are made of natural rubber, synthetic rubber and other polymers. Natural rubber refers to the rubber produced by artificial rubber trees. SBR, high benzene, butadiene rubber is synthetic rubber, oil products. Rubber is used as the main raw material to produce homogeneous and heterogeneous relief surfaces, smooth surfaces and rubber floors inside. Homogeneous rubber floor refers to natural rubber or synthetic rubber based, monolayer or multilayer structure of CDs color, composition consistent with a floor; heterogeneous rubber floor floor: refers to is based on natural rubber or synthetic rubber, the structure comprises a wear resistant layer and the other in composition and (or) the design of different compaction layer a compaction layer contains the skeleton layer.
Rubber floors are generally used in places with high wear resistance requirements, because of high wear resistance, high prices, difficult to dye, single color, strict installation methods, the market is not too large. At present, it is mainly used in the transportation field, such as subways, airplanes, automobiles and other transportation facilities, such as airports, stations, ships and other transportation hubs.
The linen floor is also quite different from the PVC floor. The linen floor is one of the elastic materials. It consists of linseed oil, limestone, cork, wood flour, natural resin and jute. The natural environment is the most prominent feature of the floor, has good resistance to cigarette performance. The disadvantage is that the surface is porous, resistant to pollution, difficult to install, low temperature, fracture and so on. At present, the membrane is mainly flax, a single homogeneous structure.
Antistatic floor is also called dissipative electrostatic floor. This floor, when it is grounded or connected to any lower potential point, allows the charge to dissipate and is characterized by a resistance between 1.0x105-109. Anti static floor variety, mainly has anti-static ceramic tile, anti-static floor, three full steel anti-static movable floor, composite anti-static flooring, Aluminum Alloy anti-static flooring, imitation wood imported anti-static flooring, PVC anti-static flooring, anti-static flooring, calcium sulfate, which belongs to the category of the floor is anti PVC electrostatic floor PVC.
Antistatic PVC floor is made of conductive material on the floor of PVC. It is made of anti-static floor. But it's not easy to add some carbon powder. The anti-static floor has a strict boundary in terms of resistance. General resistance in 106~109 times between the floor is called anti-static floor, resistance in 104 to 106 times called conductive floor. Anti-static floor is mainly used in the computer room, special wards, precision workshop and some other places which require special static electricity. So anti-static PVC floor is also a kind of PVC floor. But rubber flooring with some conductive components can also prevent static electricity.
Compare to the linen floor
PVC floors and linen floors belong to resilient floors, but differ:
The ingredients and process are different: the linen floor is made of a mixture of oxidized linseed oil, cork and wood flour and laminated to the jute backing. PVC floor is with polyvinyl chloride and its copolymerization resin as the main raw material, filler, plasticizer, stabilizer, coloring agent and other accessories, in the continuous sheet substrate, the coating process or by rolling or extrusion process and. From this point of view, flax is made of pure natural flax material, and PVC floor is made of PVC material, but it is also a green environmental protection material.
There are differences between wear resistance and stability: Flax floor resistance to indentation in general, flax floor hard soft, this is why the thick floor high notch performance is not very good reasons, comparatively better wear resistance of PVC floor. In addition, linen floor size stability in general, so you must use a strong glue, on the whole, the linen floor stability is inferior to PVC flooring.
There are differences in maintenance difficulty: floor need maintenance in natural light, and there will be differences in real samples, yellow, flax floor for the maintenance of the product (PH>7) resistance is poor, flax floor re polished, in need of special maintenance products must be used when waxing. Linen floors are much harder than PVC floors, but because the surface is porous, all stains must be removed quickly, otherwise the surface will leave indelible prints and will have to be sanded and waxed. Because it is not a thermoplastic material, so it can not be recycled, burn marks can be easily worn, but for the deep hot streak, and PVC floor than the floor polish much easier.
The difficulty of installing is different: it is difficult to install the linen floor. If the indoor temperature is too low, the linen floor will break. Because of its absorption nature and dimensional instability, the product must be quickly installed with strong glue. For example, one day, a group of 80 to install laying 100 square meters PVC floor, or it may only be 60 square meters of floor laying. Linseed oil is not sensitive to temperature, can not use the same material electrode for welding welding, so it is not so, but "joint" floor could be divided into E3 waterproof, flax floor is not suitable for wet rooms or clean area requirements. The linen floor gives a strong smell and remains in the room where it is installed.
Contrast with rubber flooring
PVC floors and rubber floors are resilient flooring, but somewhat different:
Composition and production process are different: rubber flooring is divided into homogeneous and heterogeneous. Homogeneous rubber floor refers to natural rubber or synthetic rubber based, monolayer or multilayer structure composed of uniform color, vulcanization and the floor; heterogeneous rubber floor is the floor on the basis of natural rubber or synthetic rubber.
Color difference: rubber floor coloring is difficult, because the rubber suction color is very strong, so most of the rubber floor color is single; and very much PVC floor color, can be any combination, can give designers more options.
Installation difficulty is different: PVC floor light texture, easy installation; rubber flooring is heavy, installation more laborious. And the installation of rubber flooring requirements more stringent, if the method is not correct, there will be bubbles, the self leveling foundation requirements more perfect, otherwise it will exaggerate the defects at the grassroots level.
The market demand and the wear resistance of different rubber floor due to the high prices, used only in some high-end places, scope is narrow; and the PVC floor due to its high price and therefore is widely used, the huge market potential. In addition, rubber floors have stronger wear resistance. They are suitable for airports, stations and other places with large traffic flow, as well as aircraft, trains, subways, automobiles, ships and other vehicles.
The different composition and production process: carpet is to cotton, hemp, wool, silk, grass and other natural fiber or synthetic fiber raw materials, by manual or mechanical process of knitting, woven tufted or ground paving material.
The performance and maintenance are different: the carpet are flammable, afraid of fire, fear of water, afraid of the tide, and the maintenance is very troublesome, very easy to dirty, easy to breed bacteria shelter evil people and countenance evil practices. And PVC floor fire retardant, not afraid of water, not afraid of tide, take care of very simple, wipe with cloth can be, good pollution resistance, with antibacterial effect.
Contrast with tiles
The different composition and production process are: the so-called ceramic tile, the refractory metal oxidea metal oxide, through grinding, mixing, pressing, sintering process, glaze, and the formation of building materials or decoration of the corrosion resistance of the ceramic or stone tile, known as the. The raw material from a mixture of clay, quartz sand and so on.
Performance and maintenance are different: tiles are not slippery and cold texture, maintenance is also troublesome, very easy to dirty.
Installation difference: tile is heavy, installation more difficult, and it is difficult to move after installation, can not be reused. The PVC floor light texture, installation is very simple, in the original ground can be directly paved without compression space, so in the old building transformation is very suitable.
Compared with marble and stone
The stone is very heavy, which brings a lot of burden to transportation and construction, especially to the main structure of the high-rise building.
Stone meets water easily, the texture is cold, marble is radioactive, granite contains radon, which is harmful to human body.
Marble prices are high, but the laying effect is very high grade, suitable for high-end use.
Contrast with wood flooring
Wood floors can be broadly divided into three categories: solid wood flooring, solid wood composite flooring and laminate flooring.
Solid wood flooring is a natural material, has irreplaceable advantages, synthetic materials, non-toxic and tasteless, comfortable, warm in winter and cool in summer. But it is expensive, hardwood resource consumption, the installation of heavy workload, difficult to maintain (fear of fire, fear of water, afraid of tide) and floor width direction produced larger size changes with changes in relative humidity.
The appearance of the solid wood composite floor has the same beautiful wood texture as the solid wood floor. It has good dimensional stability and is easy to lay and maintain. But still can not get rid of fear of fire, fear of water, afraid of the shortcomings of the tide, not as good as PVC flooring, environmental protection, abrasion resistance is less than PVC floor.
The substrate of aggrandizement wood floor is medium or high density fiberboard and particleboard, good dimensional stability, the surface layer of impregnated decorative paper containing wear resistant materials, ensure the wear resistance of the surface layer of the cigarette burning resistance, scratch resistant and anti pollution performance, which is compared with the former two, and super wear resistance and PVC floor the anti pollution performance than there is a considerable gap.
Contrast with plastic floor leather
Plastic flooring leather and PVC flooring are not the same product. Although some people call PVC flooring "floor leather" and "plastic floor", they are actually confused with two kinds of flooring.
Plastic flooring (floor leather) is a very low-end products, the main component of plastic, fire, aging, and short service life.
Contrast with bamboo flooring
Bamboo flooring is also made of natural bamboo and wood. It is green and environmentally friendly. But bamboo flooring is also afraid of water, afraid of fire, afraid of tide, for indoor temperature and humidity sensitive, easy expansion, deformation or dry shrinkage cracking, serious or even moldy.
