Dec. 12, 2019

SPC lock floor has the highest hardness.It cannot be bent like other sheets or self-adhesive floors.There are snap slots around the SPC lock floor,which are connected by these snap slots during paving.Due to the plasticizer and the proportion of stone powder(calcium carbonate) and PVC,the SPC lock floor material is relatively brittle.If the sub-floor of the payment is not flat enough,the problem of snap slots fracture will occur.Therefore,strict techniques must be met when paving.

01 Detection of flatness

The SPC lock floor has a high requirement for the flatness of the sub-floor.Therefore,when renovating a new house,it must be self-leveling first.If the old ground is renovated,the height difference should not exceed 2mm,and there are no depreesions and bulges.

02 Pavement moisture-proof cotton

SPC lock floor itself has good waterproof and moisture-proof performance,so the moisture-proof cotton during paving is not for moisture-proof,but has another function.As SPC lock floor has high density, laying a layer of moisture-proof cotton between the foundation and the floor can provide a good cusioning effect,which can make the two contact more closely,meanwhile providing a softer feel for the floor.However,it should be noted that the thickness of the moisture-proof cotton should not be too thick, 1-2mm is ideal.
