What is Wood Plastic Composite Decking?
The technology of wood plastic composite (WPC) has been around for many years. However, it is in recent years that this material has become especially popular in the manufacturing of decking planks. WPC is a combination of waste sawdust and wood shavings compounded with polymers and additives. In this process the polymer is melted and blended with the wood fibres to coat the wood fibres and form a homogeneous material. The end result is a product that retains the benefits of wood and polymer without the negative characteristics of both materials.
