Category Partner: Stone Plastic Composite or SPC Flooring

Using the same technology as LVT flooring (Luxury Vinyl Tile/Plank), this rigid core board has a decor paper and a wear layer fused onto its top surface. Some products include anti-scratch coatings of variable grades as a final protective layer.

Locally, wear layer thicknesses start at 0.3mm for residential purposes and escalate up to 0.55 mm for more commercial applications. Most quality products include a bonded acoustic layer underneath, of variable qualities and performance, which improves underfoot comfort, reduces sound and has thermo-insulation properties.
