What you really should know about WPC

The fact that WPC stands for wood plastic composite gives some homeowners the idea that the product contains wood. However, the only wood product this material contains is wood flour, in addition to calcium carbonate and thermoplastics. It is a waterproof material that might also be known as waterproof vinyl, luxury vinyl flooring, or enhanced vinyl plank.

WPC has many benefits that really make it stand out on the market, including the fact that it has a very rigid core, which means it can be used over subfloors that have slight imperfections. That core is also responsible for the fact that the format can be longer and wider, without compromising the integrity of the flooring. This material also has a wear layer that’s made of vinyl which offers a softer underfoot feel and absorbs quite a bit of noise, making your space a little quieter than before.

Last but not least, you’ll find some amazing styles and designs with this floor covering. If you love the look of all natural stone and solid wood floors, that is certainly an option with this material. In fact, the look is so convincing, your guests won’t believe it’s not the real thing. Even the grain patterns and textures are amazingly realistic. At the same time, you’ll be able to clean and maintain these floors with ease and speed, so it’s perfect for even the busiest lifestyles.
