What Is WPC Flooring?

WPC Vinyl Flooring, which stands for Wood Plastic Composite, is an engineered vinyl plank flooring option that has been newly introduced into the market. The main difference with this flooring is the construction. A WPC product is manufactured with a wood-plastic composite backing instead of a solid PVC backing. The engineered backing combines recycled wood pulp and plastic composites to form a bond of strength and stability. This is then topped with a vinyl top layer.

Just like a standard vinyl floor, WPC flooring is water-proof and will not be damaged in the event of a spill or moisture. WPC flooring is a plank system with a glue-less locking system similar to a laminate installation. Another perk is not needing an underlayment for installation!
