Updated: Feb 1


Wood Plastic Composite

What is Wood Plastic Composite?

Wood Plastic Composite also known in short as WPC is a composite material of wood fibers and plastic. This unique combination of materials leads to a solution that is versatile, highly durable, and environment-friendly. It is a great alternate to conventional plastic. The resultant material has application in a range of areas both outdoor and indoor such as flooring and decking, fencing, furniture, household items. Any product that is manufactured using traditional plastic can be manufactured using WPC. What you may visualize is a wooden finish product that is aesthetically appealing. The end product made is enhanced with a higher resistance nature to moisture, termites, and extreme weather conditions. The result is a product that has the durability of plastic, aesthetic value of wood and at the end is also sustainable for the environment.


Key Components of WPC

The key components of wood plastic composite granules are wood fibers and plastic. The wood fibers are upcycled. They are sourced from the local handicraft industry where they are a waste by product and would otherwise have been used for fuel purposes, increasing pollution. Plastic that goes into WPC can be also be recycled or biodegradable in nature as per customer’s needs. The result of the combination of these key components leads to strong granules that have high versatility, durability, and self-protectability and are environment friendly.


Wood Plastic Composite Materials

There are numerous applications of Wood Plastic Composite granules in numerous domains.


1.    In construction, WPC is used for manufacturing materials for decking, flooring, cladding, and paneling. This is due to mainly its aesthetic value but also for its durability and flexibility.


2.    Furniture industry both indoor and outdoor incorporating weather-resistance properties and aesthetics.


3.    In the automotive sector, numerous interior components such as door panels, trims, and dashboard setups may be utilized for their lightweight, aesthetics, and durability properties.


4.   For consumer goods, these materials are best utilized in the manufacture of toys and household and kitchenware items due to their ecofriendly nature and versatility.


Common advantages of Wood Plastic Composite (WPC)

1.    Resultant products are a perfectly synchronized composition of wood look and feel with plastic mechanics. The combined benefits of the two surpass the advantages of the two individually.


2.    You can experience the wood finish and benefits with an extra edge of plastic.


3.    The combination is more flexible and may be injection molded using existing machinery and in fact reduces electricity usage.


4.    Any product being manufactured from wood or plastic may be easily replaced with WPC granules. The utilization remains the same but the benefits outweigh the original components.


5.    The customization possibilities are endless from looks, shape, orientation, molding, and color.


6.   This combination results in highly versatile products that are environment friendly, sustainable, recyclable, and do not add to existing environmental woes.
