Create highly filled polyethylene-based wood polymer composites that retain their integrity through freeze thaw cycles while meeting the rigors of heavy traffic. By optimizing Typical applications include decking, railing, windows, doors, decorative trim, moldings, automotive parts, truck flooring, boardwalks and docks.
As per a report by Freedonia, demand for wood-plastic composite and plastic lumber is projected to advance about 10% pa through 2011 to US$5.4 bln. These alternative lumber materials are expected to continue to penetrate the building materials market at a rapid pace, particularly in decking applications. Composite and
According to the new report published by Grand View research, the global Wood Plastic Composite Market is expected to reach USD 9.77 billion by 2024, Increasing demand for wood plastic composites in construction industry particularly in decking, fencing, and molding & siding applications is expected to
I remember reporting on wood-plastic composites products, primarily weatherable decking, well over a decade ago when quality issues would steadily crop up. The growing demand for wood-plastic composites from this market segment is projected to drive the demand in coming years thanks to the superior performance
Wood-plastic composites (WPCs) are a product class that has been developing over the last 40 years mance, a homeowner may choose to use WPC decking instead of pressure-treated timber because of the ease However, to meet industrial, consumer, and environmental demand's research must continue to improve

Wood plastic composites. (WPCs) are roughly 50:50 mixtures of thermoplastic polymers and small wood particles. The wood and thermoplastics are usually Materials usage can be also be reduced through the en- gineering of special shapes e.g., hollow-core decking boards. Disadvantages. The wood component
High-performance windows and advanced insulation products allowed us to reduce the energy consumption of our buildings, but with concerns about limited Producers of wood-plastic composite deck materials operate in a marketplace that demands accountability on their products and their plants.
Decking applications will account for more than two-fifths of composite and plastic lumber demand in 2018, comprising 19 percent of all decking demand.
's eco-friendly composite decks are made from a blend of 95% recycled wood and plastic--a great choice for your home & the environment. 's proprietary, eco-friendly processing method eliminates the use of smoke stacks while our bi-coastal factories reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Additionally
