The wear layer is the protective coating on top of the decorative layer of the SPC flooring. The most popular is a urethane-based layer that protects the floor against scratches, stains, and scuff marks. The wear layer keeps the original look of the floor longer, providing a maintenance-free finish.  A good thick wear layer can keep your flooring looking like new years after it’s been installed.

 

The durability of SPC flooring is, to some extent, determined by the wear layer. When shopping for SPC flooring, pay attention to the wear layer. Just like the thickness, the thicker the wear layer, the more durable the floor will be. Make sure to choose features of the flooring that’s right for you and your application, using the same questions posed above.

 


From the aspect of product durability, it is the wear layer that is clearly important. Wear layer is the upper PVC layer of the product which is worn during the use, and which protects also the lower layers of the product.

Therefore, the formulation of this layer and the raw materials are very important, e.g. the wear layer is free from fillers, and it is made from wear-resistant PVC type. Besides the composition, its thickness is also really important, as we may use the flooring as long as the wear layer exists.

That’s why wear layer thickness is the key criteria of standardized classification of floor coverings regarding the durability and the intensity of use.

 

SPC Flooring Thickness

SPC flooring comes in thicknesses ranging from 4mm to 8mm. The biggest factor to keep in mind is that the thickness does not only determine durability – the wear layer does.
With that said, the thickness is an important factor to consider. There are several important questions you must ask yourself when deciding which thickness will be right for you:
– Where am I installing?
– Will there be a lot of foot traffic in this area?
– What type of subfloor do I have?
– What condition is my subfloor in?
– What type of SPC do I have?


As a general rule, a thicker SPC flooring will provide more stability and comfort underfoot. So if you are looking for flooring to refresh your low traffic bedroom, a thinner SPC flooring will work great for you. For areas that have more traffic and usage, such as entryways and hallways, you will want to choose the thick SPC floor with thick wear layer.
