Construction of water-resistant imitation wood plastic floor

Water-resistant faux wood flooring what you are looking for is none other than the product of the plastic floor lock. Since there is no need to use glue during the installation process (glue adhesion can be reduced if exposed to too much water), the floor's water resistance is 100%. This type of floor has 4 layers as follows:

SPC đế sole layer

The base layer of the floor is manufactured from a mixture of virgin pvc and stone powder (stone plastic composite). The durable and sturdy material makes the water-resistant plastic wood floor still have good bearing capacity with only a thickness of 3-5 mm.

To eliminate the need to install foam when installing, you can look to plastic flooring with IXPE lining. This is a lining made of polyethylene plastic with low thermal conductivity, increasing the thermal insulation of the floor. The lining also makes walking on the floor smoother and better against noise, improving your living space.

Anti-fading layer due to UV

The decorative finish of water-resistant vinyl flooring is at risk of fading due to UV rays (ultraviolet rays present in the sun). Therefore, we can only install the floor in the interior space. However, to protect the color of the floor as best as possible, the manufacturer has covered the floor with a layer of UV protection.

Lock button

The appearance of the lock has brought the title of "waterproof wood plastic floor" to this product. Flooring is installed "floating" on the floor, not fixed to the floor with glue. The boards are closely linked together into a unified floor by a smart yin-yang coupling system right on the edge of the board.
