The project “Material utilization of plastic waste in the production of products based on new, polymer-bound wood materials” (WPC Recycle), funded by the financial instrument. LIFE by the European Community, has been carried out by the company Werzalit AG Co. KG. The project time was 30 month. The company
The production machinery and laboratory devices are generation 2011, allowing the manufacture of high quality products, similar to those produced by West Europe companies. Beside the usual profiles for decking, floor, wall mount, pillars and fences, we can manufacture any other type of extruded WPC profile, by quickly
Final Report Summary - LIMOWOOD (Advanced wood plastic composite material for the production of bath furniture resistant to moisture and free of coatings). Executive Summary: A novel wood plastic composite (WPC) prepared with wastes from wood and plastic industries has been developed.
At the present moment there are only a few industrial manufactures of Wood Plastic Composites (WPC) in Europe. The manufactures are usually small and specified in certain products, which is contradictory to the North American manufacturing structure. A WPC is considered as a competitive material mainly in the field of
pigments. A generally accepted German term could not be established so far. The literal translation of WPC is: Holz-Kunststoff-Verbundwerkstoffe. North America has a leading position in the field of WPC production and use, in 2005 about 700,000 tons were sold on the market here. Japan Europe. Germany. North America.
The market was stable throughout 2011 and 2012, but average growth of 9% p.a. in volume can currently be expected in the EU. Decking continues to be the most frequent field of application for WPCs in Europe; solid profiles are rising compared to hollow ones. Contrary to common belief, WPC production
To achieve a reliable base of data, the study drew from a survey conducted in 2013 among WPC and NFC enterprises, producers and customers. The response rate was exceptionally high, especially for the WPC part of the study. Consequently, the study includes some 65 European WPC extrusion
