Wood Plastic composite material at home and abroad also call it: Plastic Wood, environmental Wood, Wood science and technology, renewable Wood, Plastic Wood or poly Wood, its standard English name is: Wood & Biofiber Plastic Composites, the industry known as WPC.
Is the chip of wood, bamboo, straw, chaff, peanut shell, cotton stalk, such as primary biomass materials as the main raw material, using the polymer interface chemistry principle and the characteristics of plastic filling modification, mixing a certain proportion of the plastic base, after processing by the special craft processing and molding of a reversible recycling, morphological structure, a variety of basic materials. It is to keep the look and feel of real wood floor, and has the good moistureproof and waterproof, acid and alkali resistance, fungus suppression, antistatic, insect-resistant eat by moth, such as performance, and wood plastic products with high fire resistance, no pollution, pollution-free, recyclable.
Wood-plastic composite material18 questions and answers about the product
What is wood plastic? For what occasion?
Wood - plastic is a kind of building materials which is extruded by plastic and wood fiber. It is the first choice material for outdoor building materials (floor, fence, chair stool or water bank landscape, etc.) due to the two characteristics of water resistance and wood texture.
What colors are available in wood plastic? Do you need any paint?
Unlike wood, wood plastic does not need to be painted to have a variety of colors to choose from (sometimes the difference in color affects the price). And because of the special molding process of wood plastic, it does not have the problem of color fading.
Will the wood - plastic fade?
yes. Plastic that is exposed to sunlight and humidity will fade slightly in 10 to 12 weeks.
Are wood - plastic more likely to burn than wood?
Wood - plastic profiles are C - grade building materials, burning conditions are similar to wood. Through the combustion characteristic experiment, wood plastic is not easier to burn than wood. The burning temperature of wood plastic needs to reach 86 degrees.
Do you need quarantine at the exit? Do you need fumigation? Need special proof?
No, different from natural wood, because of the special process and formula of wood plastic, the export is a fumigation product without any special supporting documents.
Is wood plastic made from recycled materials?
yes. Wood plastic is made from natural plant fibers such as recycled plastic and waste wood chips or rice bran.
What is the difference between wood plastic and plastic wood?
Unlike plastic wood (which is made from 100 percent plastic), wood plastic is made from plastic and wood chips that are approximately 1 to 1. Because of the composition of natural fiber, wood plastic has better anti-uv performance and lower thermal expansion and shrinkage performance, and is as easy to process as wood.
How about the service life of wood plastic profiles?
According to the foreign information, the life of wood plastic under normal conditions can be up to 25 years.
How long is the life span of wood plastic in the open air?
Wood plastic is widely used in outdoor, and most used to crowded public place, time to accept the test of stream of people and the environment, in this kind of high density, the service life of wood plastic can reach 5 years, when used in a private place or less traffic areas, life can be up to 10 years of wood plastic.
Is wood plastic a kind of environmental protection material? How to deal with waste wood plastic profiles? Will the waste wood plastics cause pollution to the environment?
Wood plastic environmental protection significance is multiple, on the one hand, consumes the environmental pollution caused by waste plastic and wood powder, on the other hand because can effectively replace the use of wood in the outdoor, thus greatly save precious natural resources. Since it does not contain any toxic ingredients, it can be treated in the same way as other ordinary construction waste without causing any pollution to the environment. It can be recycled.
What is the weight of wood plastic compared with general wood?
Compared with the general wood, wood plastic is much bigger than important, usually at more than 1.1, and the proportion of general timber is 0.4~0.7, even if it is a heavy hardwood, the proportion is only around 1.0. So it's much heavier with the same volume.。
How to process wood plastic, do you need special tools?
Wood plastic is as simple as wood in processing, and in some ways easier. Only use ordinary wood processing tools can be used for cutting, drilling and other processing.
What type of screw is suitable for wood - plastic profiles?
It is recommended to use high quality screws such as stainless steel and hot galvanizing, especially with threaded screws, which can help increase the grip of screws.
Can wood - plastic profiles be used for structural parts?
Can't. Ordinary wood plastic profiles have high strength and toughness, but they do not have the same rigidity as wood, so they cannot be used as structural parts. However, modified glass fiber reinforced wood plastic has high rigidity and can be used for structural parts.
Is the water absorption rate of wood plastic high?
The water absorption rate is very low because of a layer of plastic surrounding natural fibers such as wood fiber. Suitable for the waterfront landscape.
Will the cold weather have an effect on wood plastic?
Wood plastic even under cold weather still perform well, however, because the composition of wood plastic plastic accounted for more than 50%, so in the extremely cold weather become hard and difficult to punch, this case we recommend drilling in advance.
