Wood Plastic Composite is a hybrid material composed of natural wood and plastic fiber. Saw dust from fiber fillers like pulp, peanut hulls, or bamboo are mixed with new or waste plastic powder, from materials such as polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, polypropylene, and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene. Once the materials are mixed together to achieve a relatively thick consistency, they are extruded or molded.
Additives, such as colorants, reinforcing agents, and lubricants can be added to achieve a higher level of specification for the intended product’s use. Because of the composite’s unique composition, wood plastic composite can be manipulated to assume a wide array of shapes and dimensions, including arched and bent shapes. As a result of their high cellulose content, wood plastic composite can be treated in a similar fashion as wood, but they are also moisture- and rot-resistant.
Because of the high cellulose content from the wood, WPC assumes many of the same characteristics of wood and can be subjected to the same processes, including planning, drilling, and sanding. Nails, screws, and other fasteners often achieve greater hold when used with WPC than with lumber, which results in WPC’s ability to use smaller fasteners to hold more. Additionally, WPC offers superior water resistance when compared to basic wood with minimal expansion. The lack of moisture present within WPC also results in resistance to decay. The ability of WPC to perform in high temperature environments is also better than that of wood.
