WPC Products Achieve Light Weight And High Strength
Since the 1980s, the wood industry has been paying attention to wood plastic composite decking materials and applying them to the fields of transportation, building materials and furniture. Subsequently, wood plastic composite materials are gradually applied to building partitions, pallets, floors and decorative panels. In the manufacture. In recent years, under the deepening of publicity, people have begun to realize the advantages of wood plastic composite materials and have shown good development prospects in the field of furniture manufacturing.
Advantages of wood plastic composite in the field of furniture manufacturing
The toughness and strength of the materials used in the product will directly affect the quality of the furniture. Under the improvement of the formulation of the new wood plastic products, the impact properties and bending properties of the wood plastic composite materials have been significantly improved. WPC decking materials made of fibreglass and sisal fibre have better mechanical properties than traditional wood materials. Of course, the performance of wood plastic composites will also be affected by the type of plastics and fillers. Different raw material formulations will have large differences in performance and need to be arranged according to specific application requirements.
Indoor furniture is an indispensable item in people’s lives. It must have good surface properties and a beautiful appearance. Therefore, the surface properties of WPC decking materials will affect the manufacturing grade of furniture and are directly reflected in the market. In terms of price. The surface properties of wood plastic furniture are mainly determined by color, gloss, texture, touch and texture. By molding and extrusion, the desired surface properties can be achieved.
Unlike daily necessities, clothing, and food, indoor furniture has a very long time of use and a slow pace of replacement. Therefore, people have very high requirements for the durability and corrosion resistance of furniture. Wood plastic composite materials have high-quality anti-mite, anti-corrosion, anti-drying, flame retardant and waterproof properties. Researchers are studying the wear resistance, thermal stability and creep of materials, and have achieved preliminary results.
For the furniture of the bathroom, dining room and kitchen, not only should it be beautiful and beautiful, but also have the functions of antibacterial and antibacterial. The WPC decking material has good antibacterial and antibacterial properties. In recent years, research on the antibacterial problem of wood plastic composite materials has been Beginning with broad-spectrum antibacterial to anti-pathogenic stages. In recent years, wood plastic furniture has begun to develop in more fields, and gradually reflects the artistic style of wood plastic composite materials. Designers have found that small-sized homes need simple, affordable, safe and comfortable furniture, and wood plastic composite materials can meet the needs of small-sized homes.
Application of wood plastic composite decking materials in the field of furniture manufacturing
According to the structure, common wooden houses have panel furniture, frame furniture, shaped furniture, and curved wood furniture. Wood plastic panels can be used as frame-type furniture panels and panels, or they can be made into panel furniture. Bottom plate, top plate, partition plate, side plate, etc. Since the 1990s, people began to use the die-casting method to manufacture prefabricated parts, and set up a mesh layer. Under the development of wood plastic extrusion technology, researchers will use twin-screw extruders and single-screw extruders. The combination of sheet and mould has successfully produced wood plastic furniture panels. With the development of paintable wood plastic furniture technology and imitation marble plate technology, wood plastic surface decoration technology has ushered in a better development prospect. Compared with traditional materials, wood plastic materials do not release harmful substances, which meets people’s requirements for health and environmental protection.
At present, wood plastic profiles have been widely used in the manufacture of furniture trim and door frames, and the production efficiency is very high. The profile molds can be modified to produce various types of furniture profiles. At the stage, research on wood plastic profile manufacturing technology focuses on mold size, formulation improvement, cavity design, material rheology, and process parameters. In order to improve the durability and mechanical properties of the material, wood plastic coated solid wood and embedded ribs can be used, and engraving technology and laser sintering technology are used to effectively improve the appearance of the furniture decoration.
Regarding the assembly and connection problems in wood plastic furniture, it has always been the focus of research. In order to improve the durability of furniture, it is necessary to consider the firmness and detachability of furniture. When connecting, it is necessary to pay attention not only to the function of the furniture, the force and the place of use, but also to the creep properties, viscoelasticity and nail holding the force of the material. Different types of WPC decking have significant differences in their mechanical properties. It is necessary to select reasonable structural treatment and connection methods according to the type of materials. In order to ensure the assembly effect of wood plastic furniture, special joints and screws need to be applied. At this stage, research on the connection technology of wood plastic profiles needs to be improved.
Wood plastic composite decking materials are the focus of future research, and they are applied in the field of furniture manufacturing, which promotes the further development of the furniture manufacturing industry. With the excellent performance of wood plastic furniture, the market puts higher demands on wood plastic furniture, wood plastic furniture. How to realize “lightweight and high strength” of its components is becoming a problem that material researchers and designers need to think about further.
