What is the WPC?

Wood-Plastic Composites is booming at home and aboard in recent year,a new class of composite material.Instead of the usual adhesive resin,it refer to the use of polyethylene,polypropylene and polyvinyl chloride,etc,and is mixed with more than 50% of wood flour,rice husk,straw and other waste plant fiber into a new wood materials,and then extruded,molded plastic processing,injection molding process to produce sheet or profile.Plastic and wood powder by mixing after hot extruded sheet,called WPC sheet extrusion.Mainly used in building materials,furniture,logistics and packing industries.

   Based WPC is high density polyethylene and wood fiber,determine certain characteristics of its own and has the characteristics of plastic and wood.

(1)Good processability

  WPC containing plastic and fibers,therefore,it has with similar wood processing performance,such as sawing,nailing,planing.It can use woodworking appliance to complete,and the nail holding power is superior to other synthetic materials.Mechanical properties are superior to wood materials.Nail holding power is generally three times the wood,and is 5 times the particleboard.

(2)Good strength properties

  WPC containing plastic,it has good elastic modulus.Further,since the fiber-containing and sufficiently mixed with the plastic,which has a hardwood with considerable compressive,flexural and other mechanical properties.Its durability is better than ordinary wood materials.High surface hardness,typically 2-5 times the wood.

(3)With waterproof ,corrosion resistance and long service life

  Compare with wood,WPC materials and products are resistant to strong acid,water,corrosion resistant,and do not breed bacteria,can not easily be moth-eaten,not multiply fungus.Long life,up to 50 years.

(4)Excellent performance adjustable

  By additives,plastics can be polymerized,foam,curing,modification and other changes,thus changing the density of the wood materials.What’s more,it can achieve anti-aging,anti-static,flame retardant and other special requirements.

(5)An ultraviolet light stability,good coloring

(6)Its biggest advantage is that turning”waste”into wealth,100% recovery and reproduction.It can decompose,will not cause white pollution,is the real green products.

(7)A wide range of sources of raw materials

  Production of WPC material of plastic raw materials are mainly high-density polyethylene or polypropylene.Wood fiber can be wood flour,bran or wood fiber,also need a small amount of additives and other processing aids.

(8)As your need,WPC can into any shape and size.
