WPC, SPC, IPC, EPC and MGO - Understand the Differences
Hybrid floors come in many different flooring types – WPC, SPC, IPC, EPC and MGO.
SPC stands for Stone Plastic Composite floorboards which have a core composition made of limestone and PVC. This flooring is highly durable and so easy to clean, it is perfect for low maintenance living.
WPC is a Wood Plastic Composite that is crafted from recycled wood and PVC. These floors ensure underfoot comfort and have excellent acoustic properties.
IPC is an Infused Polymer Core, which is tough and silica free. This technology protects against the airborne crystalline silica that can negatively impact the health and wellbeing of our customers.
EPC is an Engineered Plastic Core, which creates increased stability and is well suited to high-traffic areas of the home or office.
MGO is a Reinforced Mineral Core made of Magnesium Oxide which is a strong yet highly lightweight material. This flooring is ideal for high-density areas as it is resistant to mould, mildew and harmful bacteria.
