CONSIDERATIONS IN RECYCLING OF wood-plastic compositeS. J. E. Winandy, N. M. Stark, C. M. Clemons. RWU4706 Performance Engineered composites, USDA Forest Service,. Forest products Laboratory, Madison, WI / USA. Abstract. wood-plastic composite decking has made major advances in material performance, processing and user acceptance. The growth of wood-plastic composite decking in North America has grown from less than 1 % in mid-90's to over 10%
To look at and feel, a wood/plastic composite material is very similar to wood, helped by the fact that it contains up to 55% wood flour. Here at Kedel, we did consider stocking these wood-plastic composite planks and decking profiles, but a chance encounter at one of our exhibitions put us off the idea. A prospective customer questioned us about the performance of our recycled plastic decking at Greenbuild Expo, Manchester in 2012. He had 120 sq metres of wood plastic composite

Tecnodeck started its activity back in 2004 and today is one of the leading companies in Europe on the WPC-wood plastic composite materials. Tecnodeck is also the brand of a complete deck system and architectonic profiles, manufactured in this innovative material. wood plastic composite is already a first choice material in countries like the US, Canada or Japan. There has been a growing enthusiasm in Europe where this material is used more and more. Tecnodeck is
The Atlantic City boardwalk -- the first oceanside wood boardwalk in the United States—was made of wood, and, according to some studies, continues to be the top choice for most residential homeowners' deck projects. Hardwoods—all woods Also known as wood-polymer composites, wood alternatives or synthetic decking, the composite has quickly become the fastest-growing decking material for residential use in the past dozen years. composite decking is an
About Us. Neoture is leading in sector of wood plastic composites (WPC) materials. We think that using high quality, eco-friendly and easy to maintenance materials is more a lifestyle than just a simple advantage. The WPC materials is an innovation material with the looking, texture and warmth of the traditional wood but with the resistance and durability of more advanced polymers. We offer outdoor materials made of wpc as decking, tiles, wall panels and fencing.
decks have traditionally been made of wood. However, after extensive maintenance year after year only to end up with a decomposing unstable deck that has to be replaced merely to start the whole process over again, homeowners began to seek something better. In fact,PVC decking materials are expected to experience double-digit demand gains through 2014 and are projected to outpace wood due to this shift in demand. “US demand for wood-plastic composite and plastic
wood-plastic composite Lumber vs. wood decking. A Comparison of Performance Characteristics and Environmental Attributes. Introduction. plastic “lumber” products began appearing in U.S. markets in the late 1980s. Its development was stimulated both by the rising volume of largely un-recycled plastic waste for which uses were needed as well as by increasing consumer interest in more durable, lower maintenance outdoor products such as decking and fencing.
Another fantastic benefit of composite decking is that the boards can be made from recycled materials, meaning that they are more sustainable and environmentally friendly than some other forms of decking. For example, we are proud to be able to say that the Smartboards are made from 90% recycled materials. HIgh quality composite decking options from Hoppings. SmartBoard wood plastic composite decking.

wood plastic composites are relatively new products as compared to the long history of natural lumber or traditional wood composites such as particleboard or fiberboard. This fact sheet wood plastic composites are widely used in the U.S. They are manufactured by mixing wood particles as fine as flour and recycled plastics. In general, WPC deck has a production cost of about 15% more as compared to that of pressure-treated lumber, but requires a lower maintenance cost.
EP decking is a wood-plastic composite manufacture producing decks with plant fiber recycled wood and plastic (HDPE). Through scientific formulas and advanced processing, the composites have the advantage of durability and hardness, as well as resistance to acid and alkali, absence of distortion and a reUSAble green, eco-friendly material. The composites are used in decking, Wall cladding, Pergola, Fencing and Pallets for physical distribution.
The most abundant profiles made from wood plastic composites are boards or lumber used in outdoor decking applications. Most WPC products in the USA are utilized in building materials with few exceptions for residential and commercial building applications, which means that building codes are the most important national rules for the WPC manufacturers. Additive manufacturing Fused layer modeling Cellulose nanofibrils Adhesion strength composite.
