The development process of wood-plastic composite decking

February 22, 2021

Wood-plastic composites decking made of wood flour and plastic first appeared during the Second World War, but due to the poor compatibility of wood flour and plastic, the performance of the composite material obtained when the proportion of wood flour is too large is also poor. Interface compatibility has been one of the main contents of subsequent research.

Wood-plastic composite decking started as a commercial application in the 1950s. In the 1970s, WPC began to rise as a modern concept. The excellent properties of wood-plastic composites make it widely used. Since the 1990s, WPC has entered a period of rapid development, especially in the United States and Canada.

As a new type of environmentally friendly material, WPC has received a lot of praise, and then some people have been disappointed by the defects of some products after prolonged use. Therefore, its research direction has gradually focused on the weather resistance, water resistance, and flame retardancy of the WPC materials aspect.

With the advancement of science and technology, the technology of wood-plastic composite decking is gradually mature, and it has made great progress in terms of resource-saving and environmental protection. As a building material, it has greatly improved its water resistance, corrosion resistance, and durability. We have reasons to believe that with the development of the times, we will have higher and more environmentally friendly WPC materials.
