We all know that the decoration of floor materials has always been a relatively important part of the decoration, and the floor decoration materials are also diverse. In addition to the well-known tiles, wooden floors, etc., there are still many new decorative materials, such as plastic wood flooring. PVC flooring, rubber flooring, etc., but the material of the floor is more, the unfamiliar owners are easy to confuse, what is the difference between rubber flooring and PVC flooring? Are there any commonalities?
Rubber flooring and PVC flooring have many commonalities: they are all environmentally friendly and harmless floorings that have emerged recently this year. They have many common features such as anti-slip, high elasticity, super impact resistance, sound absorption and so on. The market prospect is bright. Although they have many common features, they differ.
First of all, the two are completely different concepts. Let's take a look at it:
What is rubber flooring?
Rubber flooring is a floor made of natural rubber, synthetic rubber and other polymeric materials. Butylbenzene, high benzene, and butadiene rubber are synthetic rubbers and are products of petroleum. Natural rubber refers to rubber extracted from artificially cultivated rubber trees. In appearance, the rubber floor is bright and bright, giving a very spiritual feeling, and it is more refreshing for those who are ready to exercise. Its texture is also soft like rubber. When others are on the rubber floor, there will be unlimited power and jumping power, which is very suitable for sports as a place for sports.
What is PVC flooring?
PVC flooring is a new type of lightweight body decoration material that is very popular in the world today, also known as "light body material". It is a popular product of Japan and South Korea in Europe, America and Asia. It has been popular abroad. It has entered the Chinese market since the early 1980s. It has been widely recognized in large and medium-sized cities in China and is widely used, such as families and hospitals. Schools, office buildings, factories, public places, supermarkets, businesses, sports venues and other places. “PVC floor” refers to the floor made of polyvinyl chloride. Specifically, polyvinyl chloride and its copolymer resin are used as main raw materials, and fillers, plasticizers, stabilizers, colorants and the like are added to the continuous continuous substrate, coated or calendered, extruded or extruded. Process production.
The difference between rubber flooring and PVC plastic flooring
1. Different ingredients and production processes
Rubber flooring is divided into homogeneous and heterogeneous. Homogeneous rubber floor refers to the floor which is vulcanized by single or multi-layer structure with the same color and composition based on natural rubber or synthetic rubber. Non-homogeneous rubber floor means that the floor is based on natural rubber or synthetic rubber. The upper layer comprises a wear layer and other compact layers which are different in composition and/or design. The compact layer comprises a skeleton layer; the PVC floor refers to a floor made of polyvinyl chloride material. Specifically, polyvinyl chloride and its copolymer resin are used as main raw materials, and fillers, plasticizers, stabilizers, colorants and the like are added to the continuous continuous substrate, coated or calendered, extruded or extruded. Process production.
Second, the color difference
Rubber floor coloring is more difficult, because rubber has a strong color absorption, so most rubber flooring color is relatively simple; and PVC floor color is very much, can be arbitrarily combined, can give designers more choices.
3. Market demand and wear resistance are different
Due to the high price, rubber flooring is only used in some high-end places, and the scope is relatively narrow. PVC flooring is widely used due to its high cost performance, and the market potential is huge. In addition, rubber flooring is more wear-resistant, and is suitable for use in airports, stations, and other places where traffic is heavy, as well as in airplanes, trains, subways, automobiles, ships, and the like.
Fourth, the difficulty of installation is different
The PVC floor is light in weight and easy to install; the rubber floor is heavy and the installation is laborious. Moreover, the installation method of the rubber floor is more strict. If the method is not correct, the requirements for the self-leveling foundation are more perfect, otherwise the defects of the base layer will be exaggerated.
