Plastic floors have excellent water resistance because the main component of the product is plastic, suitable for installation in environments with high humidity.

Anti termite

The floor is made from PVC, does not contain cellulose - the favorite food source of termites. Therefore, it is absolutely resistant to termites, ensuring a long life.

Plastic floors have good grip and are not easy to slip or fall

Anti-fire spread

Plastic floors are less flammable than natural wood floors, which helps increase home safety in case of fire.


Plastic floors are cheap, which helps users save on construction and floor maintenance costs.

For example:

  • Natural wood floors cost from 600.000 to 3.00.000 VND/m².

Color fades when exposed to sunlight for too long

The disadvantage of plastic flooring is that it will fade when exposed to sunlight for too long

There are several types of plastic floors

There are 4 types of plastic products used for flooring: locking plastic flooring, glued plastic flooring, self-adhesive plastic flooring and roll plastic flooring.

Plastic floor lock

This is a plastic floor installed floating on the ground using joints (locking joints). Because no glue is used, the floor has high flexibility and good water resistance. We can easily install and remove floorboards without much effort.

Construction of plastic floor with imitation wood lock

Note: This type of plastic floor needs to be lined with foam sheets when installed. Foam floor mats help protect the lock and create smoothness when moving. Recently, many manufacturers have launched a line of locking plastic floors with built-in rubber soles, increasing convenience of use.

Plastic floors with rubber soles do not require an additional layer of foam when installed

Laminate flooring with imitation wood glue

This is a type of plastic floor where we have to buy extra glue to apply to the floor when installing. Glue will be the key factor so that the board sticks tightly to the surface and does not move during use. Made from PVC plastic, the product is flexible, does not fold and is safe for health.

Self-adhesive plastic flooring mimics wood

This is a plastic floor with built-in glue on the base layer. The glue is protected by a layer of paper that we just need to remove to fix the board to the floor. No need to buy additional glue and eliminating the need to apply glue has made this type of flooring highly sought after in recent years.

Wood-imitation rolled plastic flooring

Rolled plastic flooring is also known as “rolled vinyl flooring”. This is a plastic floor designed in large panels (2-3m width, 20-30m length). Because of its large size, this type of floor has few connection points.

The product is often used in large spaces such as schools, kindergartens, hospitals, etc. Besides the standard type, you can choose antibacterial or anti-static types to ensure safety.
