It is, thus, often promoted as an environmentally preferable or green alternative to other decking materials. In this paper we examine the performance of wood-plastic composite (wpc) decking and its environmental properties. We also highlight a recently completed life cycle analysis.

Analysis and development of recycled materials for wood plastic ...therefore, the study is performed to develop the composite that called as wood plastic composite or wpc from recycled material such as wood flour and plastic. The product made contains of the virgin and post consumer materials (e.g. the High Density. Polyethylene orHDPE) that will be functioned as the matrix material and wood are flour as the reinforcement material. The Wood plastic Composites (wpc) or known as wood fibre-plastic composites and/or green composites ...【Get Price】

Reasons to Avoid Wood/Plastic Composite Decking and Profiles TradeIn the USA, the promotion of wpc as rot free and not requiring wood preservatives was challenged as scientific evidence arose of the growth of decay fungi in wpc in service, and the failure of wpc boardwalks in the southern states of America after a few years of service".

Plastic Lumber Possibilities - Green Building SolutionsThis may explain why most of the extruded plastics or wpc boards produced have been used for deck and boardwalk surfaces, where flexibility is less important. However, recently introduced oriented wood composites offer increased stiffness and flexural strength. Single- systems rely on continuously extruded, structurally foamed high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Extrusion flow molding allows the use of even heavily contaminated recycled plastics, resulting in the ...【Get Price】
