What is the difference between rubber tile and laminate flooring?
- The material of the rubber tile is made of plastic granules (PVC), so it has better water and moisture resistance properties than laminate flooring. Made from wood fiber HDF (High Density Fiberboard)
- Rubber tiles It has an approximate thickness of 2,3 and 4 millimeters. There are both glue-installed and click-lock installations (which, since the beginning of 2018, click system rubber tiles are It is very popular because it is more durable and easier to maintain), while the thickness of laminate flooring is only 8 mm and 12 mm. It will be installed with a tongue entry system only and must be backed with a foam film underlay. (or foam laminate) before installing only, so the thinner rubber tile floor make the floor preparation For installing rubber tiles, it must be neater, that is, it must be a polished cement floor only.
- Most of the time Laminate flooring is produced only with wood grains, but in addition to wood grains. Rubber tiles also have stone patterns, floor patterns such as blue, gray (often seen on hospital floors), and the patterns that are becoming very popular nowadays are cement-striped rubber tiles or polished bare mortar. due to easy care When walking is not harsh on the feet The heel is not cracked and, most importantly, the cement-patterned rubber tile has no chance of cracking or cracking like the bare plaster on the floor as well.
types of rubber tiles
There are many types of rubber tiles. can be classified into several types If divided according to the pattern of rubber tiles It is divided into groups of wood grain, stone pattern, floor pattern and bare cement pattern. In addition, the most important rubber tile division and must be taken into account when choosing a rubber tile is Materials used in the manufacture of rubber tiles From the foregoing, rubber tiles are made from PVC resins, so the quality of rubber tiles depends on the quality of the PVC used to produce them. Some factories may reduce production costs. By using recycled raw materials or plastic waste to produce, it will greatly affect the quality of rubber tiles, such as stretching and shrinking that are difficult to control due to plastic waste. can’t control the source thus making it difficult to control quality The method of observation is The selling price of rubber tiles is so cheap that it is noticeable (that is, the production cost is low). The quality of the rubber tiles is good. Must be made from Pure PVC or new plastic pellets only. (double floor It is another factory that uses Pure PVC in the production of rubber tiles. Therefore, we have a lot of installation work, including housework, condos, shops in leading department stores. that has been used extensively, but the quality and beauty are still good)
In addition, rubber tiles Can also be divided according to the size and thickness, which are glued and tongue-clicked. The glued type is 2mm and 3mm thick. Installed by gluing on the polished cement floor only and 4mm thick rubber tile. It is a click lock type that does not require any glue at all. The service life is shorter and more difficult to maintain because the glue is also not resistant to water and moisture. It is recommended to be a tongue inlay type with a thickness of at least 4mm. The 4mm thick rubber tile that clicks into the tongue can also be installed over the existing tiled floor or the original terrazzo floor. without having to dismantle tiles or terrazzo for homes that want to renovate as well Thus making the rubber tile into the tongue. very popular It is a very hot material this year (2018).

5.Middle Layer or vinyl layer that determines the thickness of rubber tiles and has anti-impact properties and has a support to reduce the shrinkage of rubber tiles as well.
6.Balance Layer or the best level of rubber tiles This layer has reduced shrinkage and increased tactile properties. with the installed surface.
