WPC stands for wood plastic composite flooring, but is commonly misnamed waterproof core flooring. Regardless, both names are suiting because WPC is actually totally waterproof. These specialty luxury vinyl floors are perfect for your entire home. You can have the traditional look of wood without needing to refinish your floors, and it is also popular in commercial spaces. Typically, all WPC products will be considered luxury vinyl tiles or luxury vinyl planks, but not all luxury vinyl is WPC.
SPC flooring, or stone plastic composite flooring, is similar to WPC except its core is made from natural limestone powder, polyvinyl chloride, and other stabilizers. Just like WPC, SPC flooring is a totally waterproof option for your home. SPC is denser than WPC which makes it a more durable option. When it comes to temperature fluctuations, SPC is the ultimate flooring choice. The most noticeable advantage of SPC is that it is more affordable than WPC flooring.
