Vinyl flooring types
Luxury vinyl tile and plank (LVT and LVP)
It is the most popular vinyl flooring type on the market. Recently, the consumer properties of LVT have undergone a number of qualitative
improvements, in particular, they have become more pleasant to the touch and more resistant to scratches and mechanical damage. The structure
and appearance is closest to the laminate. It simulates wood and tiles as accurately as possible.
Advantages of LVT over laminate: no phthalates; no plasticizers harmful to health; no harmful additives; increased environmental friendliness; approved for use in medical and educational institutions; does not fade in
the sun; does not give a smell; does not rot; easy to clean.
SPC represent the newest and most advanced generation of vinyl flooring. The basis of the coating is a monolithic slab with a density of 2000 kg / m3.
Advantages: warm floor with heating up to 40 °С; uninterrupted laying up to 100M2; a wide range of acceptable bases (concrete screeds, wood, old
Disadvantages: on models that do not have their own backing, its additional installation is required, since the abrasive caught under the surface of the coating during installation can provoke floorboards creaking; installation type only castle.
WPC is similar in structure to SPC, but due to the fact that wood flour and foaming agent prevail in its basis, this type of coating is less stable. This requires the inclusion of an additional PVC layer and result is a structure as complex as that of quartz vinyl.
SPC advantages: not demanding about the subfloor; no backing required.
Disadvantages: only lock-type installation; there is a heating limit.
Methods of installing vinyl planks and tiles
To the castle
Laying is carried out on a screed or self-leveling floor. The substrate must be even and dry. The screed must first be primed. You can start installation no earlier than a day after that. No backing or glue required. The planks are connected to each other using a special lock connection. Typical drawing: straight deck, angled, chaotic or offset. During operation, part of the strips can be easily dismantled and replaced with new ones.
This method requires professional skills. The floor surface must be flat, smooth, clean, dust-free with priming, free of cracks and flaws. Planks are glued to the floor according to the markings using a special PVA-based glue.
With adhesive tape
This method allows vinyl laminate to be installed on flat subfloors, including ceramic tiles or linoleum. The adhesive on the back of the die is protected with special paper, which is removed immediately before gluing. Do not allow dirt to get on the sticky part, so as not to reduce the adhesion of the glue. It is important to control the tight fit of the planks to the surface without air bubbles. This can be achieved by using a stitching roller.
This material is perfectly resistant moisture, does not deform under its influence, so vinyl flooring installation is allowed in the bathroom and other rooms with high humidity.
The upper polyurethane layer of the plank protects it from abrasion, scratches, damage and burnout, so that the floor retains its original appearance for a long time. The service life of vinyl, depending on the class and intensity of use, up to 20-25 years
Strength and resilience
Vinyl combines rigidity and elasticity at the same time. When walking on a vinyl floor, it bounces slightly without leaving any dents. Furniture and heavy furnishings also leave no marks.
Resistant to deformation
Vinyl retains dimensional stability well under all indoor conditions.
The surface of the vinyl is much softer than that of hardwood and laminate, so it absorbs extraneous noises much better, which gives additional acoustic comfort for both the homeowner and his neighbors.
The fall of even heavy objects does not cause deformations on the floor surface.
The vinyl covering acts as a heater, it does not let the cold through from the concrete floor screed and prevents it from leaving the room. On such a floor, you can safely walk barefoot and be calm for the children when they play on it.
Resistant to temperature extremes
This makes it perfect for heated floors.
Vinyl flooring has good anti-slip properties, which is especially important if there are children or the elderly in the house.
Vinyl flooring is made from recyclable raw materials and does not emit harmful compounds. Before purchasing the material, it is recommended to check the availability of environmental certificates with the seller. With proper hygienic care, vinyl can’t develop microorganisms harmful to humans, so it is great for people with allergies
Easy to care for
Vinyl floors do not attract dust, so regular damp mopping is sufficient to keep them clean. Never mind if you spill coffee or wine on it, any dirt is perfectly removed by any neutral cleaning agen.
Vinyl does not accumulate static electricity and does not “electrocute”, therefore it is suitable for use in offices, shops and other public areas.
