Introduction of PVC carpet and asphalt carpet

What is PVC carpet?

PVC square carpet is a carpet produced by using polyvinyl chloride resin material as the backing of the square carpet, specifically polyvinyl chloride and its copolymer resin as the main raw material, adding filler, plasticizer, stabilizer, colouring agent and other auxiliary materials, on a sheet continuous substrate, by uniform mixing, coating process or by calendering, extrusion process plasticized, can be used instead of pure wool carpet and chemical fibre carpet.

What is asphalt carpet?

Asphalt square carpet, that is, asphalt is used as backing. Petroleum asphalt is a product of the crude oil processing process. Asphalt is widely sourced, and secondly, asphalt can be recycled and reused. One of the disadvantages of asphalt carpet is that it can't be uncovered and replaced if it is laid to the ground for too long, but there are still many companies willing to use it because its price is cheaper compared to PVC square flooring.


Introduction of the difference between PVC carpet and asphalt carpet

The material: asphalt bottom is a layer of asphalt plus a layer of non-woven fabric, unlike plastic. PVC carpet is the feeling of ordinary plastic, you can feel against plastic items.

Flexibility: The flexibility of PVC carpet bottom is better than that of asphalt bottom, there is elasticity if folded, asphalt bottom has cracking feeling when folded.

Ground requirements: asphalt bottom has high requirements on the ground, requiring the ground to be very flat, otherwise it is easy to warp and crack. And PVC square carpet is relatively more accommodating.

Aesthetics: PVC carpet is more flat, straight edge, seamless, not easy to take the line off the hair, beautiful.

Removal difficulty: asphalt glued to the universal adhesive removal is difficult, especially tile and buff ground.

The dimensional stability of PVC carpet is better: In the experiment of testing the dimensional stability, the carpet of PVC carpet was heated in the microwave oven at 60 degrees Celsius for 24 hours and immersed in water at 60 degrees Celsius for 24 hours, and the result showed that the size of the carpet with PVC bottom was only 0.5% smaller than the original specification.

PVC carpet has the better weight-bearing property: PVC carpet has a more precise structure, which gives better support to some bulky furniture so that the carpet will not be destroyed due to its heavy load point, while asphalt is more fragile, when a heavy object is placed on it, it will leave an irrecoverable mark on the carpet and make the surface of the carpet not smooth.

PVC carpet will only produce toxic gas under high temperature: PVC carpet will only produce toxic gas when the temperature reaches 240 degrees Celsius, and in fact, human beings cannot survive under this high temperature, people usually have already died before the toxic gas is produced due to smoke inhalation and high temperature. On the contrary, the asphalt bottom in 140 degrees Celsius has begun to produce a lot of black smoke, this smoke affects the rescue work of firefighters.
