Plastic waste is a crisis for our planet. According to the United Nations, humans produce 400 million tons of plastic each year worldwide, half of which are single use. Plastics are becoming part of the Earth’s fossil record and a marker of the Anthropocene, our current geological era. Biocomposite like Wood Plastic Composite is supposed to be a major component in the New Plastic Economy. For plastics to thrive without harmful waste and negative environmental impact, a switch from a linear economy to circular economy is paramount.
Wood Plastic Composite (WPC), combines the best of both worlds: the natural warmth and appeal of wood with the durability and versatility of plastic. As we move towards a greener tomorrow, WPC emerges as a leading solution that offers a plethora of benefits across industries. Let’s explore why Wood Plastic Composite is positioned as the material of the future and how it's shaping the way we build, design, and live.
Understanding Wood Plastic Composite Granules
Wood Plastic Composite, is a composite material made from a blend of reclaimed wood fibers and plastic. The wood fibers are the waste material generated by the handicraft industry. RRAJ Bioplast has carefully engineered to strike a balance between the natural aesthetics of wood and the longevity of plastic. Our material captures the essence of wood while eliminating some of its drawbacks while the minimal plastic content provides the strength and durability required. RRAJ Bioplast manufactures a variety of grades of Wood Plastic Composite Granules to suit every custom need of consumer product manufacturers.
Advantages of WPC
WPC offers a plethora of benefits for manufacturers to shift to more sustainable solutions. Here we have a few of the advantages:
Environment Friendly: WPC takes the concept of recycling to a whole new level. Wood Plastic Composite Granules help reduce landfill waste and dependence on virgin materials, making it an environmentally responsible choice.
Durability: The plastic content in WPC provides excellent resistance to termites and fungus. This makes it an ideal for outdoor applications, such as decking, fencing, and exterior cladding.
Aesthetic Appeal: Wood Plastic Composite Granules manufactured by RRAJ Bioplast retains the natural look and feel of wood, making it visually appealing. It can be manufactured in a range of colours and finishes to match diverse design preferences.
Versatility: Wood Plastic Composite Granules can be injection moulded and extruded into a variety of forms, allowing for endless design possibilities. WPC offers design flexibility that traditional wood and plastic often cannot match.
Resistance to Water & UV: WPC's plastic content makes it highly resistant to water and extreme weather condition.
Reduced Carbon Footprint: By utilizing recycled materials and minimizing the need for constant replacement and maintenance, WPC helps in lowering the carbon footprint associated with traditional plastic products.
Applications of WPC
The versatility of Wood Plastic Composite Granules translates into a wide range of applications across various industries, with some of the most notable being:
Construction and Interior Design: From decking and cladding to flooring, Wood Plastic Composite's durability and aesthetic appeal make it an excellent choice for enhancing spaces.
Automotive: WPC is increasingly being used in automotive interiors and components, offering manufacturers a sustainable alternative to traditional plastic and contributing to light weighting efforts.
Household Products: The recycling potential of Wood Plastic Composite Granules makes it an attractive option for creating sustainable solutions for various household items like cutlery, crockery, glassware, etc reducing the environmental impact of single-use plastics.
Furniture: WPC's ability to mimic the appearance of wood while maintaining durability because of plastic makes it an ideal material for crafting indoor and outdoor furniture pieces.
Toys: Wood Plastic Composite's non-toxic and durable characteristics make it an excellent choice for toy manufacturers.
