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 well-being 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.

Hybrid flooring can be installed over sub-flooring

Hybrid flooring is a floating floor that can be placed directly over a subfloor. This will save time and money without compromising performance. You'll need to ensure the subfloor is flat and smooth before installing. If your subfloor is suffering from some wear and tear, choose slightly thicker hybrid floorboards that will conceal any imperfections without visible dents or mounds.

Installing hybrid flooring

A hybrid floor is very easy to install which makes it a popular choice for DIY home builders. It uses a click-and-lock method that allows you to lay down hybrid planks without the need for any adhesives. Simply remove your old vinyl, carpet or other flooring and replace it with brand-new timber-look hybrid flooring. Simply slide the flooring planks together until they click. Tap gently with a rubber mallet if required to get them to fit and lock together securely.

Hybrid flooring options including Blackbutt, Spotted Gum and Natural Oak

Invite the beauty of the outside in with your new flooring featuring species like European Oak and Australian classics like Blackbutt and Spotted Gum. The realistic textures and grain patterns of each plank look exactly like solid timber flooring and you can choose from an extensive colour palette that includes warm, cool, light, medium and dark hues.
