-Will drastically increase the life of the cutting surface
-Material alignment brackets will be mounted so that they are not affected by the pad oscillating to ensure that the material
aligns with the die before being cut

Vinyl Flooring Tariffs on Chinese Imports Update scheduled Increase Sept 1st 2019.

[Reuters – Extracts August 31st 2019] – U.S. next round of tariffs on Chinese imports is scheduled to take effect starting on Sunday Sept 1st 2019.

The Trump Administration has targeted some $300 billion in annual goods imports from China for 15% tariffs in two parts, on Sept. 1 and Dec. 15.

Freeman Schwabe Blog

SEPT. 1 TARIFFS

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency will begin collecting tariffs for Chinese goods at 12:01 a.m. EDT (0401 GMT) on Sunday. Guidance issued on Friday indicated that there will not be a grace period for cargoes that have left China before that time, unlike that granted for goods in transit when the United States imposed a tariff increase in May.

The Sept. 1 list covers about $125 billion worth of mostly consumer products. The target list includes flat panel television sets, flash memory devices, power tools, cotton sweaters, bed linens, multifunction printers and many types of footwear.

OCT. 1 TARIFF INCREASE

The Trump administration is accepting public comments through Sept. 20 on a proposed Oct. 1 tariff rate increase to 30% from the 25% duty already in place on $250 billion worth of Chinese imports.

These products include $50 billion worth of largely non-consumer goods, including machinery, electronic components including semiconductors and printed circuit boards, and chemicals. But a later $200 billion list of goods included many consumer goods and building products, including furniture, vacuum cleaners, lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures, handbags, luggage and vinyl flooring.

DEC. 15 TARIFFS

The second part of the 15% tariffs on Chinese goods not previously hit by U.S. duties is scheduled to go into effect on Dec. 15. This list represents the heart of the consumer technology sector, including $43 billion worth of cell phones imported from China in 2018, $37 billion worth of laptop and tablet computers and $12 billion worth of toys.

Making WPC leader in Luxury Vinyl flooring

Linkedin Post

Wood Plastic Composite (WPC)

LVT stands for luxury vinyl tiles and LVP stands for luxury vinyl planks. Sometimes you will find LVT/LVP that are also waterproof/WPC, but not always. They mean two different things.

Typically, all WPC products will be considered luxury vinyl tiles or luxury vinyl planks, but not all luxury vinyl is WPC.

A WPC vinyl has a core made of a wood plastic composite, that gives the floor a solid, stable feel. Plank Thickness – WPC vinyl floors will be thicker than a standard LVT vinyl. WPC vinyl flooring usually ranges from 5mm to 8mm, while a traditional LVT will be 4mm or less

Extracts from Duchateau’s Blog, explaining why LVT is moving from Flexible to Rigid Core and WPC is becoming the most popular type of Rigid Core Luxury Vinyl Flooring.

https://duchateau.com/2018/08/01/how-wpc-is-changing-the-game-in-luxury-vinyl-flooring/

WPC and LVT Layers

“Luxury vinyl tile is all about layers. There are many reasons to choose LVT, but for the flooring that features it, WPC is the defining layer. Its rigid core supports other layers responsible for stain resistance, wear and tear, and high-resolution wood imagery. Flooring featuring WPC features anywhere from 4 to 5 layers.”

WATERPROOF IS BEST

Of course, the signature feature of WPC is the fact that it’s 100% waterproof. Everyone wants the natural beauty of hardwood in their homes, but it isn’t always practical in every room in the house. LVT flooring has made it possible to put the look of wood almost anywhere.

RESILIENT, COMFORTABLE AND QUIET

Flooring featuring WPC is incredibly resilient, but much more forgiving on your feet. The composite wood plastic core is dimensionally stable when exposed to moisture and temperature fluctuations, while the layered structure ensures maximum sound reduction. No squeaking or hollow echoes like you get with laminate floors. Finally, padded underlayments provide comfort and further muffle footfalls and other unwanted noise.

ULTRA-LOW MAINTENANCE

All of the features that make flooring with WPC so appealing also make it exceedingly easy to maintain. Occasional vacuuming will do the trick, along with a regular spray mop using a cleaner formulated for luxury vinyl. The top layer of any LVT floor with WPC is designed to repel stains and protect against wear and tear. And its waterproof nature means there’s no need to be constantly on the lookout, guarding against leaks and floods.”
