What Are The Main Relationships And Differences Between PVC Flooring, Plastic Flooring, Stone-plastic Flooring, Rubber Flooring, Linen Flooring And Anti-static Flooring
Oct 26, 2018

Stone-plastic floor is a domestic term, referring to the PVC sheet floor, because the main raw material of PVC sheet floor is natural stone powder, wear-resistant layer is PVC material, so called "stone-plastic floor" or "stone-plastic floor tile".

Plastic flooring, PVC sports flooring, PVC rubber flooring, PVC plastic flooring and so on are not standard names, but we can understand it as PVC floor.

Rubber flooring and PVC flooring are completely two concepts. Rubber flooring is made of natural rubber, synthetic rubber and other polymer materials. Natural rubber refers to rubber obtained from artificial rubber trees. Butadiene, high benzene and butadiene rubber are synthetic rubber, and are the products of petroleum. With rubber as the main raw material production is divided into homogeneous and heterogeneous relief surface, smooth surface indoor rubber floor. Homogeneous rubber flooring refers to the flooring based on natural rubber or synthetic rubber, with uniform color and composition of a single or multi-layer structure vulcanized; heterogeneous rubber flooring: refers to the flooring based on natural rubber or synthetic rubber, the structure includes a wear-resistant layer and other in the composition and/or design of different compacted layers. The compaction layer contains a skeleton layer.

Rubber flooring is generally used in places with very high wear resistance requirements. The market is not large because of its strong wear resistance, high price, difficult coloring, single color and strict installation methods. At present, it is mainly used in the field of transportation, such as subway, aircraft, automobile and other means of transportation, airports, stations, ships and other transport hubs.

Flax flooring and PVC flooring are completely different, flax flooring is a kind of elastic floor, its composition is: flaxseed oil, limestone, cork, wood powder, natural resin, jute. Natural environmental protection is the most prominent feature of flax floor, and has good resistance to cigarette butts. Its disadvantages are porous surface, no dirt resistance, difficult installation, low temperature and so on. Flax is mainly made of coiled materials and is a single homogenous 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, characterized by resistance between 1.0x105 and 109_. There are many kinds of anti-static flooring, such as anti-static ceramic tiles, three anti-static active flooring, all-steel anti-static active flooring, composite anti-static flooring, aluminum alloy anti-static flooring, imitation imported wood anti-static flooring, PVC anti-static flooring, calcium sulfate anti-static flooring, etc. Electric PVC floor.

"Antistatic PVC floor" is made of conductive material made of conductive ingredients in the composition of PVC floor. But this is not simply to add some carbon powder can be, anti-static floor in the resistance of a strict demarcation. Generally speaking, the floor with resistance between 106 and 109 is called anti-static floor, and the floor with resistance between 104 and 106 is called conductive floor. Antistatic flooring is mainly used in machine rooms, special wards, precision workshops and other space with special requirements for static electricity. Therefore, anti-static PVC floor is also a kind of PVC floor. But adding some conductive components to the rubber floor can also prevent static electricity.

Contrast with linen floor

PVC floor and linen floor belong to elastic floor, but there are differences.

Compositions and production processes are different: flax flooring is made from a mixture of oxidized flaxseed oil, cork and wood flour, laminated onto the jute backing. PVC flooring is made of PVC and its copolymer resin as the main raw materials, fillers, plasticizers, stabilizers, colorants and other accessories, on a continuous sheet substrate, by coating process or by calendering, extrusion or extrusion process. From this point of view, flax is made of natural flax, while PVC flooring is made of PVC, but it is also a green material.

Wear resistance and stability are different: linen floor is generally resistant to the mark, linen floor hard soft, which is why the thick linen floor is not very good resistance to the mark, compared with PVC floor better wear resistance. In addition, the size stability of flax floors is general, therefore, must use a strong glue, from the overall point of view, the stability of flax floors less than PVC floors.

Maintenance difficulty varies: flax floors need to be maintained in natural light, samples and objects will be different, yellowing, flax floors for maintenance products (PH > 7) resistance is poor, flax floors in need of re-polishing, waxing must use special maintenance products. Flax floors are much harder than PVC floors, but because of their porous surfaces, all the stains must be removed quickly, otherwise the surface will leave an indelible impression and have to be polished and waxed again. Because it is not a thermoplastic material, so can not be recycled, burned marks can be easily worn away, but for deeper burns, thorough PVC floor than linen floor grinding much easier.

It is difficult to install flax floors. If the indoor temperature is too low, the flax floors will break. Due to its absorption properties and dimensional instability, the product must be quickly installed with strong glue. For example, in a day, an installation team can lay 80 to 100 MP PVC floors, or maybe only 60 MP linen floors. Linen oil is not sensitive to temperature, can not be used with the same material electrode for welding, so it is not welding but "joints", so linen floor can not be divided into E3 waterproof class, linen floor is not suitable for wet rooms or areas with clean requirements. Flax floors will smell strong and stay in the rooms installed.

Comparison with rubber floor

PVC floor and rubber floor are both resilient flooring, but there are differences.

The composition and production process are different: the rubber floor is divided into homogeneous and heterogeneous. Homogeneous rubber floor refers to the floor based on natural rubber or synthetic rubber, color, composition of the same single or multi-layer structure vulcanized from the floor; heterogeneous rubber floor refers to the floor based on natural rubber or synthetic rubber.

Color differences: Rubber flooring coloring is more difficult, because rubber has a strong color absorption, so most of the color of rubber flooring is relatively single; and PVC flooring colors are very many, can be arbitrarily combined, to give designers more choice.

Installation degree of difficulty varies: PVC floor lighter texture, easy and fast installation; Rubber floor is very heavy, installation is more laborious. And the installation method of rubber floors is more stringent, if the method does not appear bubbles, the requirement of self-leveling foundation is more perfect, otherwise it will exaggerate the defects of the base.

Market demand and wear resistance are different: rubber flooring due to high prices, only in some high-end places, the scope is relatively narrow; and PVC flooring because of its high cost performance, therefore the application is very extensive, market potential is huge. In addition, rubber flooring is more wear-resistant, which is suitable for airports, stations and other places with a large flow of people, as well as aircraft, trains, subway, automobiles, ships and other means of transportation.
