Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) is a composite product made of wood and plastic, which has been used as an alternative to traditional wood. In flooring, this material is often referred to as WPC vinyl. Wood Plastic Composite was originally designed for use in the construction industry, but it’s now gaining popularity with many other industries because of its versatility and cost-effectiveness.

Benefits of WPC flooring
WPC vinyl floors offer a wide range of benefits, including:
- Eco-Friendly: Wood Plastic Composite products are generally made with a significant proportion of recycled materials. Not only does it reduce how much goes to contaminate landfills and lessen wood consumption in production, recycling also leaves behind less waste for disposal.
- Cost effective: Given that vinyl flooring is generally much more cost effective than wood flooring, WPC floors will generally cost less than many other floor options.
- A variety of colors and designs: WPC is available in a wide range of styles, including ones that resemble the look of real wood.
- Easy to install: WPC floors can be installed using the floating installation method, which is generally much easier, requires less tools, and is a great DIY option.
