What you need to know before you purchase Wood Composite Decking? Wood Composites are manufactured with a blend of wood and polymer. Most common polymers used are Polypropylene, Polyethylene and Polyvinylchloride (PVC). In the building industry PVC has been used for decades to manufacture piping, gutters and windows. PVC has stood the test of time. Of the three polymers used PVC is a substantially harder material. ECOWood is the only locally manufactured composite decking with PVC as a base. All imported Wood Composite Decking is either manufactured with Polypropylene (PP) or High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). Decking made from these materials normally contain a maximum polymer load of 30% as opposed to ECOWood decking which contains 45% PVC. A higher polymer load gives higher encapsulation (coating) of the wood fibers, which leads to lower water absorption and weathering.
