As an alternative to natural wood, composite fibre plastic material offers a practical middle ground and can be used to For example, lubricants improve surface appearance and processing The primary use of this material is for external works such as decks, trellis, screen walls, garden furniture, etc. The following are the.
Door and window components, deck handrails and fencing are other mar- kets for the WPC industry. Wood plastic composites. (WPCs) are roughly 50:50 mixtures of thermoplastic polymers and small wood particles. The wood and thermoplastics are usually compounded above sizes, and with different surface textures.
Composite wood plastic decking also handles heat and weathering extremely well, being UV stable as well as resistant to the impact of moisture, mould and algae. As well as saving both The Dura Deck composite decking range is available in a variety of widths and surface finishes to suit every project need. Our narrower
Core Decking is composite is made from a combination of recycled polyethylene and recycled wood fibres. (60% recycled wood fibres and 40% recycled plastic) Our decking boards are constructed using hard wood fibres and recycled polyethylene giving the boards a hard wearing surface that is mould resistant.
Case study: Improved output and surface finish of WPC. We were approached by a wood plastic composite (WPC) producer who had been experiencing difficulties during manufacture of extruded deck-boards. The deck-boards were made from 1 3 polypropylene (virgin and recycled) and 2 3 wood fibre. Due to the boards
