by ARANTXA AMAYA on Nov 10, 2020
When it comes to shopping for your home, it's important to do research and see what is new on the market and what will eventually be the best option for you. For many homeowners and business owners alike, after considering time, cost, and labor for their home or office flooring, more and more people are choosing Luxury Vinyl Flooring. Also known as SPC (Stone Plastic Composite), this new alternative to traditional tile flooring has accumulated a long list of reasons why it is so popular. What's even more exciting, Mosaics4You is excited to announce we are now offering our own range of top of the line quality SPC. Read on to learn all there is to know about this new flooring solution.
Not all SPC is created equal. It is important to read all the specifications of the SPC you are buying. But for the most part, SPC is:
- Sound Absorbent
- Scratch Resistant
- Stain Resistant
- Fire Retardant
Our new range of SPC is also made with zero formaldehyde, certified by FloorScore for indoor air quality, fad resistant thanks to a UV coating, and environmentally sustainable.
Depending on the type of vinyl flooring the installation can be a little different. Some are peel and stick, and others are glue down. The most popular option is the easy click and go system where the planks connect with the other's joints to provide a seamless connection and design. Our SPC features patented Uniclic technology that doesn't require any glue for installation. Moreover, the SPC has low sub-floor requirements meaning the planks can lay over a number of floors, even those with tile on them. That saves many people demolition costs and time.
While browsing through the many options of luxury vinyl flooring, there are some specifications you should keep your eye on. To begin, all SPC will tell you the overall thickness of the plank. From there they should also tell you the thickness of the padding. This is what absorbs sound and shock when you step over it. Our SPC line features a 1.5mm IPXE padding + 5mm thickness for a total thickness of 6.5mm. Usually, the thicker the better the SPC but check the thickness of the padding!
Next, you'll see the millage of the wearlayer. The wearlayer is the layer that goes over the decorative design of the flooring. Most range from 12-20mil. The higher the millage means more protection to the decorative surface of the SPC so your SPC looks like the first day you bought 20+ years down the line. For commercial applications, a 20 mil wearlayer is recommended. M4Y is happy to provide SPC at 20 mil wearlayer for both residential and commercial applications.
