Hybrid flooring is an innovative new type of waterproof flooring, bringing the best characteristics of both vinyl and laminate floors to create an improved floating floor. Hybrid floors are made of multiple layers of materials pressed together and come in a wide range of designs and styles. Hybrid floors are also 100% waterproof and suitable for all areas of the house (including the kitchen, and other wet areas).
The top layer is a UV-coated wear & tear layer, the second layer is a decorative print with the desired design, and the centre is a composite core board that is waterproof and stable. Finally, there is an acoustic backing that increases foot comfort and reduces sound resonance. Hybrid flooring is an affordable flooring option and has quickly emerged as one of the most popular floorboards across Sydney.
Stone Plastic Composite (SPC hybrid flooring) stands for Stone Plastic Composite (SPC), and is made from limestone and PVC. WPC hybrid flooring stands for Wood Plastic Composite (WPC), and is made from recycled wood and PVC.
The difference? Both SPC and WPC hybrid floors are highly durable and stable, however SPC hybrid flooring is slightly more durable and dense due to its limestone composition. On the other hand, WPC hybrid flooring is slightly softer and quieter underfoot.
