Future Market Development Direction of WPC
As a kind of new outdoor WPC decoration products with friendly characteristics of low carbon, green, environmental protection and sustainable development, wood plastic products have been widely used in various fields. Foreseeable future wood plastic technology and nanotechnology, biotechnology and other modern high-tech combination, with the development of the Internet era, towards a more functional (flame retardant, antibacterial, sound-absorbing, etc), is an environmental protection the direction of intelligent and can be customized, wood plastic composite material is bound to be a promising material, greatly promote industry upgrading and development in the field of green environmental protection.
Appearance and Price of Wood Plastic Composite Decking Products
Beautiful appearance, strong performance, fast installation, affordable price, development of wood and plastic products, new technology and new assembly is the main direction. “Beautiful, durable and maintenance-free” is the biggest selling point and the hot spot of WPC, which needs to be maintained continuously. The durability of WPC products is the key point of development (colourfastness, scratch resistance, stain resistance, flame retardant, mildew resistance and material rigidity improvement). At present, domestic innovative research on WPC mainly focuses on the functional design of WPC products, such as flame retardant, ageing resistant, silent, wear-resistant, light, waterproof, anti-static and movable, as well as surface decoration, such as surface relief, double-sided texture, paint layer and solid wood layer.
Co-Extrusion Decking Products
The technology innovation of multi-colour and embossing style of the co-extruded wood-plastic surface is the key point. The colour and texture of co-extrusion decking are more realistic and durable than the original wood-plastic, and the product appearance changes in rich shades, bringing users high practical value, ornamental value and aesthetic enjoyment; It is also an excellent environmental protection material used in parks, greenways, seaside resorts, waterside pavements, decks, home and outdoor facilities, etc. In recent years, PVC co-extrusion decking products as a new material can save material instead of solid wood, after more than ten years of independent development, wood-plastic composite materials have gradually developed into a new industry. Domestic enterprises are also accelerating the application and development of WPC in interior decoration, furniture and other fields, and have achieved good results.
PVC Wood Plastic Foam Products
PVC deck products are a major feature of the domestic market, in the market potential and scale is far greater than polyolefin wood plastic products. Foamed and co-extruded PVC wood-plastic products and their production technology and application development, due to different characteristics of polyolefin wood-plastic products (flame retardant, lightweight, high strength, beautiful appearance) are worthy of attention, indoor green home PVC wood-plastic products rise suddenly, and lead the trend; In order to get through the indoor and outdoor wood-plastic product line and realize the wood-plastic integrated house, provide technical and product support; The mechanical properties of PVC deck material are much better than that of wood, and the amount of resin is greatly reduced, saving the cost, reducing the density of the material and improving the sound insulation and heat insulation effect. In addition, the foaming process also endows the products with more accurate appearance size and excellent surface texture, and facilitates the installation, which has become the development trend in the fields of building materials, interior decoration, imitation wood floor, external wall insulation, interior partition board, building templates, logistics packaging and so on.
With the increasing demand for the functionalization of outdoor WPC decoration products, researchers in the WPC industry often refer to other standards for inspection and testing, so as to ensure the preparation of more excellent functional WPC composites and bring more comfortable experience to users.
