SPC Flooring vs. WPC Flooring

You may have narrowed your flooring selection down to vinyl plank flooring, but if you have also opted for a waterproof option, you still have a few choices to consider. Both wood and stone plastic composite cores are available, and you will want to know which one best fits your requirements, which we will discuss briefly in today’s post.

Luxury vinyl flooring options

If you choose a vinyl composite tile or luxury vinyl plank, you will select between stone plastic composite (SPC) and wood-plastic composite (WPC). The main difference between the two is that the WPC core comprises wood by-products, while SPC replaces the wood with stone.

Stone composite gives you a more rigid construction, offering a dense and durable construction that resists dents, dings, and scratches extremely well. Even though these materials are generally thinner than WPC, they still maintain a dense rigidity that makes them perfect for floating applications.

Wood-plastic composite maintains outstanding durability, especially in resisting scuffs, scratches, and stains, but provides more warm-to-the-touch comfort and noise-canceling properties than stone. This benefit can be especially sought-after in areas such as kitchens, where standing for extended periods is a common occurrence.
