Compared PVC Sports Flooring with Rubber Flooring


PVC sports flooring and rubber flooring all belong to resilient flooring. However, PVC flooring distinguishes with rubber flooring. We can make a comparison from the follow aspects.

★ Production technology

Rubber flooring can be divided into homogenous rubber and inhomogeneous rubber. Natural rubber or synthetic rubber as raw material merges with adhesive in large cylinders. Then the resulting log is peeled to the desired underlayment thickness. At last, the underlayment fusion bonded to a myriad of flooring surface. What is the characteristic that homogeneous rubber distinguishes from the inhomogeneous rubber? Inhomogeneous rubber contains a layer of wear layer.

PVC flooring takes polyvinyl chloride and copolymer resin as raw material, adding filler, plasticizer, stabilizer and other accessories produce through extrusion technology.


Coloring rubber flooring is more difficult. Thus the color of rubber flooring is relatively simple. While the printed layer of PVC sports flooring determines its patterns and colors. PVC flooring gives designers more chance to select.

Installation method

PVC flooring is lighter and easy to install. Rubber flooring is very heavy; the installation is more laborious. Moreover, is stricter to the base ground and installation method. If the method is inappropriate, there may appear bubbles.

Market demand and anti-wear capability

Due to the high price, rubber flooring is applied to high-end places. However, PVC flooring has a very wide application for good performance and price ratio. PVC flooring also has a great market potential. The wear resistance of rubber flooring is stronger. Rubber flooring is often applied to airplane, train, subway, bus, ships and other means of transportation.
