Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) flooring is ground wood particles that has been mixed with heated thermoplastic resin, which is then put into a mold. Basically WPC is luxury vinyl tile that has been reinforced by a rigid core. Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) flooring is another name for enhanced luxury vinyl tile and luxury vinyl plank flooring. The most common production method for WPC is to extrude the material into the desired shape. Polyethylene based WPCs are the most common. There are many colorants, UV stabilizers, and other agents that help tailor the end product.
Enhanced luxury vinyl flooring will not corrode, and it is highly resistant to rot and decay. Wood plastic composite flooring is water proof so it is perfect for bathrooms and kitchens. Also, this flooring is very sustainable because it can be made using recycled plastic and the waste products of the wood industry.
