 How to Install PVC Vinyl Flooring

 Structure of PVC Vinyl Flooring

UV Coating-UV coating layer has high content of nanosized ceramic particles, which improve the surface hardness and scratch resistance. The nano-structure surface has the lotus effect-self-cleaning property, which make it easy to clean.

Wear Layer- Thick transparent layer protect the image layer been scratched. The thicker the wear layer is, the better protection it offers.

Image Layer-Using advanced printing technology to print high resolution colorful patterns with different styles. The top grade pigment with great fastness makes the color long lasting.

PVC Top Layer-Top layer have higher PVC content, which offers better adhesion to the image layer. Its more soft and comfortable.

PVC Middle Layer-The middle layer have high content of mineral composition. It reduces the thermal expansion, make the size more stable.

PVC Bottom Layer-The bottom layer is same as the top layer. It balances the stress generated by the different expansion rate between top layer and middle layer, keeping the flooring flat. Top and bottom layer together make the flooring more tensile and hard to break.

Foam Buffer Layer-Backing layer is soft virgin PVC material. Its a good sound suppressant, also helps to smooth out minor subfloor imperfections while adding comfort and warmth to the floor.

What's SPC flooring?
SPC Flooring-Rigid Vinyl Plank (RVP) is an upgrade and improvement of regular Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT), so also called rigid core LVT. SPC represents stone plastic composite. The main content of SPC are nano-sized calcium carbonate powder (CaCO3), polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and stabilizer.

SPC flooring is considered the new generation of LVT. Surface is same as LVT, so looks exactly same. The difference is about the core-PVC middle layer. Chemically, SPC has higher PVC content and less plasticizer compare to LVP. Physically, it's more rigid. And it has less thermal expansion, fit for area has large temperature change or very strong sun light exposure. The hard core of SPC also improve the scratch resistance during the daily use. Can load heavy stuff for long time without dent. SPC flooring is 100% waterproof, can be installed in wet areas and will never swell when exposed to water. The product does not require acclimation and can be floated over most any existing floor surface, like concrete, ceramic or existing flooring.

The high resolution pattern of the image layer makes the product looking like the genuine wood. The advanced printing technology can creat multi-tone design, which combines 5 different planks in 1 repeat, making the flooring looks more natural and beautiful.

SPC Flooring Vs SPC Vinyl Flooring Vs PVC Flooring Vs Vinyl Flooring Vs PVC Flooring Planks Vs PVC Flooring that Looks Like Wood

Is there any difference between these different names? The short answer is no, there is no difference between these names. SPC flooring, PVC flooring and Vinyl flooring are one and the same. PVC stands for Poly Vinyl Chloride and while that is the accurate definition of what vinyl flooring is made from it is hardly a description that rolls off the tongue!
PVC is also used for more than just flooring…most pipes and our ceiling and wall panels are made from PVC, most of cabling is covered in PVC and if you’ve ever been a punk or a goth you’ll no doubt be familiar with PVC clothing! If you really want to get to know PVC check out this Wikipedia page.
All this is to say that the flooring industry took the wise decision to market PVC flooring as vinyl flooring…so if you’ve been searching online for PVC flooring and wondering why you can’t find an online retailer that stocks it… now you know why!

Is PVC Vinyl Flooring really healthy?

PVC doesn't necessarily mean healthy. It really depends on what raw material the manufacture use. The stabilizer may have high lead content. And popular plasticizer-phthalates, may cause cancer. A significant amount of vinyl scrap is collected and recycled. If the scrap come from unknown source, it may also have toxic element. Cheap flooring usually means unhealthy.
What we can claim is that our PVC vinyl flooring is clean and healthy, because both our raw materials and our products are thoroughly tested regularly to make sure we can continuously offer our customer healthy product. Our stabilizer is lead free. And we don’t use phthalates. No outside scrap is used.
PVC Vinyl itself is clean. As the material of choice for blood bags and tubing, vinyl helps to maintain the world’s blood supply and supports critical healthcare procedures such as dialysis. As a packaging material, PVC helps to keep food safe and fresh during transportation and on store shelves, and it provides tamper resistant packaging for food, pharmaceuticals and other products. Because it will not rust or corrode, PVC is widely used in water pipes to deliver clean, safe-to-drink water and in sewer pipes to ensure the integrity of wastewater handling systems. PVC’s resistance to breakdown under high electrical voltage and its ability to bend without cracking make it the leading material for wire and cable insulation. PVC’s toughness and durability make it the most widely used plastic for building and construction applications such as siding, windows, roofing, fencing, decking, wall coverings, wall protection and base, and floor covering.

Do PVC Vinyl Flooring have any impact on indoor air quality?

Products emitting low levels of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) should be considered when selecting interior products. Any VOCs that are emitted from floors containing vinyl are dissipated quickly through normal ventilation. Vinyl products will not adversely impact indoor air quality in normal use.

A significant indoor air quality advantage of vinyl flooring is that it is impervious to moisture, so spills will not penetrate surfaces where such moisture could lead to microbial growth. Also, a study published in the American Journal of Infection Control (August 2000) supports the use of easy-to-clean surfaces such as vinyl in healthcare settings as a way of controlling pathogens and promoting a sterile environment. This is one of several reasons why vinyl flooring is widely accepted and specified by hospital and healthcare designers.

How do PVC Vinyl Flooring behave in accidental fires?

PVC has excellent fire performance qualities. PVC Vinyl building products are based on a naturally fire retardant polymer, and some flexible products like vinyl flooring and carpet backing contain non-combustible additives and fillers such as calcium carbonate that further improve the fire performance of the material. PVC is one of the few materials meeting the stringent requirements of the National Electrical Code of the National Fire Protection Association for insulating electrical cords and wires and data transmission cables, even in plenum applications. In addition, floors containing vinyl meet the requirements of relevant national building codes. Carpets are required to pass the Federal Flammability test DOC FF 1-70 which ensures they will not propagate the spread of flame in the early stages of a fire.

The PVC industry and third-party organizations have conducted research on the combustion toxicity of vinyl products. The contribution of the combustion products from floors containing vinyl to the overall toxic threat of fires containing many types of combustibles is not significant. The Pittsburgh Protocol is a standard test method for evaluating the combustion toxicity of floor covering products. In this test, PVC vinyl flooring is no more toxic than when burning than red oak wood.
Fire scientists recognize that the largest hazard in a fire is carbon monoxide (CO), an odorless asphyxiant gas produced in abundance by all organic materials, natural and synthetic. The mix of gases produced when vinyl products burn is very similar to those of other common materials, including wood and fabric.
Hydrogen chloride (HCl), an irritant gas having a pungent odor, is produced when vinyl burns and is detectable in very small quantities long before it reaches a dangerous concentration. An argument can be made that HCl can act as an early warning that there is a fire, and alert occupants to evacuate. HCl is unique in that its concentration in the air decreases rapidly when it reacts with humidity and most construction surfaces, like cement block, ceiling tile and gypsum board.

What do life cycle studies show about vinyl?

Since the late 1980s, at least 26 life cycle evaluations have been published on vinyl building products, many of them comparing vinyl products to similar products made of other materials. In some cases vinyl has a lighter impact on the environment, in others, it doesn’t. However, vinyl products generally have been found to perform favorably in terms of energy efficiency, thermal-insulating value, low contribution to greenhouse gases and product durability, which means using fewer resources.

Is PVC Vinyl Flooring easy to install comparing to Laminate flooring and Sheet vinyl rollers?

Yes, sheet vinyl comes in large rolls and is difficult for homeowners to install because it is so unwieldy and so hard to shape around obstructions. But who installs sheet vinyl? Instead, most homeowners are now buying and installing PVC vinyl plank flooring--easier to install even than square tile-sized vinyl because you have fewer pieces to lay.
Laminate requires foam moisture underlayment, though this is inexpensive and can be rolled out and taped together quickly (some laminate comes with the underlayment pre-attached to the back). Laminate must be cut with a hand saw, circular saw, or table saw fitted with an ultra-fine blade or a conventional blade installed backwards.

What exactly is Loose Lay Vinyl Tile?

The Looselay–or sometimes written Loose Lay – tiles do not use glue or staples or any kind of ClickLock system. Instead the backing of each tile is made with materials that use friction to effectively grip the subfloor beneath; furthermore Loose lay vinyl tiles are completely dimensionally stable which means that they will not expand or shrink depending on moisture levels, so when you install them there is no expansion gap between the tiles and the wall, and therefore–as described beautifully– “once you’ve got your floor in place, it just has nowhere to go”; and finally, Loose lay vinyl is also thick and heavy which adds to its ability to stay put.
Of course, as with all flooring, there are certain provisos when installing these products. You will need to follow the advice from each manufacturer about correctly preparing the subfloor so that it is level and offers the right kind of friction, and also the super-simple installation of Looselay tiles is best suited to smaller spaces.
Larger spaces will likely require the addition of a grid of adhesive tape applied to the subfloor first to ensure that the tiles stay put. Again, follow the advice from the manufacturer to get it right. Either way, the brilliant simplicity of this product means that most proficient DIYers will be able to confidently install a stylish looking floor!

Clearly–even with an adhesive grid–the major advantage of Looselay vinyl is that it is just as easy to get it off the floor as it is to lay it down: if you move home and would rather like to take your floor with you, you actually can! As most flooring options represent a fairly large investment, what this really means is that you can easily replace any tiles in the unlikely event of serious damage (make sure to keep a few surplus tiles, just in case). The removability aspect of Looselay is also useful in office or high-tech home environments where you might have power sockets embedded into the subfloor that you don’t necessarily want to always have visible: tiles placed over such power sockets can easily be removed when you need access.
Other benefits include the fact that modern vinyl techniques mean that most Looselay tiles are pretty durable with manufacturers offering guarantees of up to 15 years, and they are also extremely low maintenance; New technology also means that the aesthetic design of Looselay tiles is usually just as detailed, textured and authentic-looking same as other vinyl such as LVT. Plus it is warmer underfoot than real stone and softer than real hardwood. Looselay tiles also can be used with underfloor heating.

How to maintain PVC Vinyl Flooring?

PVC vinyl flooring is popular because it is affordable but also because it is so easy to care for. Unlike hardwood flooring or cork flooring, it stands up well to water, so you can use a mop with plenty of warm, soapy water for the cleaning. Just make sure you mop up excess water afterwards.
All flooring needs to be cleaned and maintained to look good and last as long as possible. The key with PVC vinyl flooring is to get dirt, sand and debris off it. These materials are abrasive, and if you walk on them repeatedly, they will scratch, mar and dull the floor’s finish. Be careful not to use abrasive cleaners and make life easier on your flooring by adding doormats at the entrances to your home.

Sweep your floors a couple of times per week or more, depending on the level of traffic they receive. You can use a vacuum cleaner, but choose one that is made for hard flooring. It either won’t have a beater bar or will have a “Hard Floors” mode that doesn’t use the bar. A bristled, rotating bar will mar these flooring types. Once the dust is up, use a floor cleaner designed for PVC vinyl flooring and mix it with warm water. Be sure to rinse the floors well since soap residue can dull the floor’s shine. A damp mop and warm water works very well. PVC Vinyl floors should not be waxed.

What type of floor mats should be used?

Natural, absorbent mats are best. Launder or vacuum the mats regularly or they might become full of dirt and sand. Then, when the mat shifts because people wipe their feet on it, the mat will act like sandpaper, marring the finish of the PVC vinyl flooring. If the mat becomes wet, pick it up to dry it or launder it.

When can you ship the goods after the order?
