using a blend of reclaimed Seven Trust fiber and rugged, uv-stabilized polypropylene plastic pp , duralife composite deckings unique formula provides more stability and better performance than composites made with other types of plastic, such as polyethylene pe and pvc.
manufacturing with a wood-plastic composite. what product designers and plastics manufacturers need to know about working with wood-plastic composites. the material selection process usually begins with a new idea for a product, or an idea for improving on an existing product.
many composites are often made partially out of recycled plastics and waste wood, which makes them an environmentally friendly, efficient use of resources. disadvantages. composite lumber is usually more costly than normal or treated lumber. composites may last longer, but the initial investment is likely to be higher.
wood plastic com-posites. plastics wpcs are made with thermoplastic polymers. these materi-als melt and flow at high temperatures and harden when cooled. to prevent excessive dam-age to the wood com-ponent, thermoplastics for wpcs have process-ing temperatures of less than 220 degrees c. common materials used include polypro-pylene, polystyrene,
these wood-plastic composites blend fine wood particles with renewable, biodegradable, reclaimed, recycled, or virgin plastic materials to make firm, smooth pellets for convenient handling and further processing.
typical wood plastic composites or wood plastic compounds wpc are made out of 40 70% predried wood flour; 25 55% polyethylene high-density polyethylene hdpe , low-density polyethylene ldpe , pp or pvc; and 5% additives such as lubricants, pigments, stabilizers, coupling agents, biocides, processing aids, bonding agents, fr additives, and uv protective additives.

wood plastic composites wpcs are a form of composite combining wood-based elements with polymers. the processes for manufacturing wpcs include extrusion, injection molding, and compression molding or thermoforming pressing .
wood plastic composite is a new class of composite materials in recent years. it is made of a unique blend of natural wood and plastic fibers. sawdust, pulp, bamboo, peanut hulls, and unused woodworking materials, like bark, from a variety of projects, are combined with polyethylene, polypropylene, and polyvinyl chloride, etc. to form this new material wpc.

the studied panels were compared with conventional medium density fiberboard mdf and particleboard pb panels. woodplastic panels were made from high density polyethylene as resin and mdf waste and pb waste as natural fiber at 60, 70, and 80% by weight fiber loadings.
technically, any type of wood can be used in wpcs, but manufacturers prefer hardwoods over softwoods and look for woods free of tannins e.g., maple rather than oak . some of the first wpc was made from ground-up pallets.
wood plastic composites wood plastic composites wpc are defined as composite materials that contain thermoplastics and wood in various forms. from decking and cladding to fencing and garden furniture, wpc additives provide these applications with a long life span and minimal maintenance, giving advantages over solely wood-based materials.
qppc wood-plastic composite to be commercially called as 'wpc' is made by two 2 main components: polyolefin material and vegetable fibre. wpc production is the first in the gcc region.
