How is SPC Flooring Made?

SPC flooring, or Stone Plastic Composite flooring, is a popular choice for its durability, water resistance, and ease of maintenance. But have you ever wondered how this innovative flooring material is made? In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at the manufacturing process of SPC flooring and delve into the intricate steps involved.

Raw Materials Required For The Production Of SPC Luxury Vinyl Flooring.

SPC flooring is crafted using advanced technology and a precise manufacturing process. It begins with a mixture of natural limestone powder, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin, and stabilizers being combined to form a rigid core layer. This core layer provides exceptional stability and durability to the flooring, making it resistant to dents, scratches, and wear.

To enhance its performance and visual appeal, a decorative film layer is then added on top of the core layer. This film layer can replicate the look of various natural materials, such as hardwood or stone, through high-definition printing technology. The result is a stunningly realistic floor covering that mimics the beauty of natural materials without the drawbacks.

The manufacturing process of SPC flooring involves several key steps:

Mixing and Preparation: The raw materials are carefully measured and mixed to ensure a consistent blend. This mixture forms the base layer of the SPC flooring.

Extrusion: The blended mixture is then fed into an extrusion machine, where it is heated and forced through a die to form the desired shape and thickness of the flooring planks.

Calendering and Lamination: Next, the extruded sheets are calendered and laminated to enhance their strength and stability. This process involves passing the sheets through rollers to achieve the desired thickness and surface finish.

Embossing: To add texture and visual appeal to the flooring, the surface may be embossed with patterns that mimic natural materials like wood or stone.

UV Coating: A UV coating may be applied to the surface of the flooring to enhance its durability and resistance to scratches, stains, and fading.
