wood plastic composites taking it to the next level

Wood-Plastics Composites Done Right | Plastics Technology

Adding wood to plastic to make WPC reduces the formula cost raises the modulus of elasticity and lowers the coefficient of thermal expansion. These benefits come at a cost however: Extruding wood fiber in a plastic matrix is technically demanding. Wood is not the only natural fiber used in plastics composites but it is the most common.【Get Price】


Wood-plastic composites were first brought into the decking market in the mid-1990s. Manufacturers guarantee that wood-plastic composite is more ecologically well-disposed and requires less support than the options of strong wood treated with additives or strong wood of decay safe species.【Get Price】

Some of the properties of wood–plastic composites - ScienceDirect

Wood–plastic composites (WPC) are widely used in USA the most common type of such panels are produced by mixing wood flour and plastics to produce a material that can be processed similar to 100% plastic-based products . Some of the major advantages of WPC include their resistance against biological deterioration for outdoor applications where untreated timber products are not.【Get Price】
