In the decoration, the purchase of decoration building materials is a very important part. Because of its excellent practical performance, wood plastic flooring is gradually accepted and used in decoration.
Wood plastic floor is a kind of high-tech green environmental protection material mainly made of wood as the basic material, thermoplastic polymer materials and processing aids, etc., mixed uniformly and then heated and extruded by mold equipment.
Wood plastic flooring combines the performance and characteristics of wood and plastic. It is a new environmentally friendly high-tech material that can replace wood and plastic. It can be used like ordinary wood. At the same time, the wood plastic floor has the woody feel of wood and the water resistance and corrosion resistance of plastic, making it an outdoor waterproof and anticorrosive building material with excellent performance and durability. For private owners, wood plastic flooring can be used for garden floor paving, balcony paving, and indoor floor paving.
Wood plastic flooring has a tendency to become thicker and thicker. Some wood flooring businesses mislead consumers in the publicity of the appearance and function of 12mm wood flooring. As a result, consumers tend to fall into misunderstandings when purchasing.
Misunderstanding 1: The thicker the wood floor, the better.
Around 1995, when the wood plastic floor first appeared on the market, the thickness was only 6 mm. In the following years, 8mm wood plastic flooring has been dominating the market. In recent years, the thickness of wood plastic flooring has continued to increase. Now 12mm wood plastic flooring has become the mainstream, and 13mm and 15mm-thick wood plastic flooring have appeared on the market. This industry trend has given many consumers the illusion that when buying wood plastic flooring, they pay special attention to thickness. They believe that the thicker the wood plastic flooring, the more weight it is, which means that it is stronger and more durable, and the quality will naturally be better. Is this really the case?
In fact, thick plates are the same as thin plates, once the surface is worn out, they cannot be used. Therefore, the quality of the wood plastic floor surface layer is largely related to the service life of the wood plastic floor, rather than the thickness of the wood plastic floor. The decisive factor that affects the quality of wood plastic flooring is not the thickness. When consumers choose wood plastic flooring, the key depends on the wood plastic flooring manufacturers' materials and technological level.
In the case of the same price, it is better to buy branded wood flooring 8mm wood plastic flooring than to buy brand-name 12mm wood plastic flooring. It looks thick, but because of the huge difference in cost, process and production technology, unbranded thick wood plastic flooring The service life may not be as long as the thin plates of the big brands.
Misunderstanding 2: The shallower the wooden floor groove, the better.
The biggest difference in appearance between 12mm WPC flooring and 8mm WPC flooring is that the 12mm WPC flooring has more notches and has the paving effect of solid wood flooring. However, in the market, some merchants said that "the shallower the better" when introducing the floor trough. The reason is that the floor trough is shallow, not easy to hold dirt and easy to take care of. Moreover, the floor groove is shallow, and the foot feeling on the floor is significantly better than the floor with deep grooves.
The depth of the wood floor trough is a problem of the production process, which is directly related to the connection between the boards. As long as the floor is fastened firmly, the depth of the wood plastic floor trough is not a big problem. Now wood plastic floor troughs are divided into V-shaped grooves and U-shaped grooves, each of which has its own advantages and disadvantages, and cannot be beaten to death with a stick.
Misunderstanding 3: "relief" floor is more wear-resistant
At present, most wood plastic flooring brands have launched "relief" flooring with uneven textures, pursuing a more primitive and simple effect of the floor, which is favored by many consumers. Recently, when the reporter visited the wood flooring market, he found that some merchants introduced the "relief" wood plastic floor, which is related to the degree of wear resistance. Some businesses said that the surface of the "relief" wood plastic floor has been specially treated. , It is more wear-resistant than the general wood plastic floor; or it can be said as "concave-convex texture increases wear resistance" and so on.
For the wood plastic flooring such as "big relief", "small relief", "relief expert" and "relief surface" that are popular in the market, most of these are insignificant. Because abrasion resistance is the most important indicator of the use of wood plastic flooring, various carvings on its surface will inevitably greatly reduce the wear resistance of the wood plastic flooring, reduce processing accuracy, and it is easy to trap dirt, which will greatly reduce the quality of use. When consumers buy, don’t simply pursue the surface effect and ignore the service life of the product and the trouble of maintenance.
The above misunderstandings that are easy to produce when buying wood plastic flooring. You can refer to the above three methods when purchasing.
