Wood plastic composites are the hybrid compound of wood fibers and thermoplastic resin. The most common method of production is to extrude the material into the desired shape. It is resistant to rot, moisture and germ infestation. Moreover, it can be molded into various shapes according to need.
Proceedings of the 51st International Convention of Society of Wood Science and Technology. November 10-12 compounds could significantly improve the mechanical properties of the new generation of WPCs. Keywords: Wood Plastic Composites (WPCs), market trends, technology, fibers, decking
The wood-plastic composites often compete with wood in the building products market. This sharing of the market requires the WPCs to perform in various applications as much as possible like natural wood. The current WPC materials are most often compounds of wood, or natural fibers, and polyethylene,
