New SPC Flooring Inspection in Anji


Recently, we went to a factory in Anji (Huzhou city) to help our customers inspect the goods before shipping. This inspection has gained a lot for our customers, because we have found some critical problems. The products are spc floorings. As a professional flooring inspection company, we think ourselves as consumers when we inspect the products. Here are some of the problems we found.

1: Color difference: The flooring with numbers in the figure is a sample agreed between our customers and the factory. As can be seen from the figure (a), the sample is cyan, while the flooring for inspection is close to red. The color difference is obvious. It is same in figure (b). Our customer is a dealer, and the board with color difference will greatly affect his sales and cause him high losses.



2. Big gap: The criterion is max assembly gap 0.15mm. But we can see from the picture that it is nearly 2mm. After such a floor is installed, water will seep and cause harm. Consequently, people who buy these floorings will definitely get angry. More importantly, once such problems arise, they are basically batches and must not be ignored.

3. Blister: Blister can appear in vinyl flooring when moisture or moist air rises from below. This moist air becomes trapped between the flooring base and the vinyl and creates a bubble or warp in the vinyl floor surface. The flooring will also produce blisters if it is not compacted during processing.

4. Residual glue: These residual glues not only affect the aesthetics of the floor. When the glue is not dry, and the two floors are stacked together, they will stick together and the floor can’t be used.

5. EIR not close: EIR vinyl flooring means that the texture actually follows the pattern in the image. A metal plate containing a pattern is pressed into the surface layer, creating embossing similar to the embossed in stone or wood. Embossing can also be used to match textures or to give surfaces an “old” appearance. It is done in part to make the vinyl flooring look or feel more authentically like real wood. But when it has a 14mm error, the flooring looks very messy, having the opposite effect.

6. Damaged: What obvious and serious damage! From the figure, we can see that the shape and position of the damaged are the same. This is because the production is pipeline production, so when there is a problem, it needs to wrap all the products to find the floors of the same problems and pick them out.

7. Bulge: The bulge is due to the foreign matter on the LVT layer when the floor is covered with film paper. This kind of floor is unqualified and unusable.

Due to the limited space, we did not show all the problems we found. Our SPC flooring checklist is determined by customers, and we both support physical and chemical tests (you can find it in our past essays). Looking forward to your inquiry.

About Us

Global ZX Floor Doctor Limited Professional China Floor Inspector We focus on floor inspection only! After high school, Peter Zhang (President of Global ZX Floor Doctor Limited) directly went into foreign trade for 5 years. This trade normally has nothing to do with the inspection work, but it led to his first connection with import/export business, and made him know clearly about the different desires of international buyer and seller. From 1995, Peter started to run flooring export business of his own in China, called “New Century company”. The export volume of this company was in the top three of local area since 2003. This experience also introduced many important friends with sparkling ideas to us. And in 2012, our factory “VGreen flooring” was first founded. In this capacity, our team not only saw how flooring was made but also many manufacturing defects, which are crucial to the flooring buyers and the final use of terminal consumer. With sense of responsibility, the thought of “find a way to help foreign buyers reduce import risks” was inspired among us. A reliable friend of Peter, whom own his flooring wholesale mall in Russia called Michael suggested, “a professional inspector or quality control manager in China locally is what I am looking forward to, that may ease burden and save my time.” This great idea is quite a proper answer and very specific to our long-time preoccupation----all clouds were dispelled, thus Global ZX Floor Doctor Limited Company (A.K.A.
