What is the difference between PVC flooring and rubber flooring?
◆ Different composition and production process: 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, and the compact layer comprises a skeleton layer.
◆The color difference is different: rubber floor coloring is more difficult, because rubber has strong color absorption, so most rubber floor color is relatively simple; and PVC floor color is very much, can be arbitrarily combined, can give designers more select.
◆The difficulty of installation is different: PVC floor is light in texture, easy to install; rubber floor is heavy and installation is more 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.
◆ There is a difference between market demand and wear resistance: rubber flooring is used only in some high-end places due to its high price. The PVC floor 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.
