What Is The Difference In Vinyl And PVC Flooring
- Mar 13, 2018 -

As a floor assembler I firstly encountered only the term PVC flooring. So it was a classic pvc floor rolled into the rolls of various width from 1.5 m to 4 m. We still encounter these types of floors in schools, hospitals, bureaus and so on.新闻88 600 450.jpg

There is also a marketing aspect in the game. If the manufacturers would call their new vinyl planks just as pvc flooring, then people would not react to it at all and not even know that there is a total new type of PVC floors. I can confirm that by my experience that when I offer to my customer a PVC floor he or she starts to look at me weirdly, thinking I am selling them the classic  old PVC roll flooring into which we stumble upon on stairs of old hospitals and block of flats buildings. But when I offer them vinyl flooring then they are suddenly more satisfied even though I basically offered them the same thing just in different dimensional shape.

Today the manufacturers include glass fiber to the most of the PVC flooring and achieve dimensional sustainability. Therefore any shape deformations are eliminated.新闻85 600 450.jpg
