Ecological Outdoor DIY Decking
By learning some information about wood products and plastic products, we can learn: Plastic takes up to 5000 years to degrade in the landfill. Trees need at least 10 years to reach full growth. Thanks to Wood Plastic Composite decking, these products have good degradability and can be recycled for reprocessing, Industrial logging can be minimised and plastic waste management can be improved.
So what are the wood-plastic DIY decking products?
Wood plastic composites are processed lumber or timber made out of recycled plastic and wood wastes. It is a non-pollution material that replaces the application of real wood.
Wood Plastic Composites (WPC) products are a group of materials that have been developed and refined over the past 12 years that are now generating high levels of global interest. Over recent years the market has exploded with demand for a new generation of high-performance products, with the added benefit that they are manufactured predominantly from post-consumer recycled HDPE plastic and timber.
What are the properties of Wood Plastic Composites?
WPC is true composite materials and has properties of both materials. They have stiffness and strength between those for plastic or wood, but the density is generally higher than either. The properties of Wood Plastic Composites come directly from their structure: they are intimate mixes of wood particles and plastic. The plastic effectively coats / encases the wood particle as a thin layer. The high moisture resistance of ecological outdoor DIY decking (water absorption of 0.7% compared to 17.2% for pine) is a direct result of this structure. Water can only be absorbed into the exposed sections of wood and is not transmitted across the plastic boundaries. The result is that WPC DIY decking is extremely water resistant, have little thickness swell in water and do not suffer from fungal or insect attack.
Wood-plastic DIY decking products have some excellent features:
1.Good stiffness and impact resistance
3.Resistance to rot
4.Excellent thermal properties
5.Very low moisture absorption
