Wood-Plastic Composites (WPC) refers to the use of natural fibers (wood fibers, non-wood fibers, secondary fibers and other plant fibers) as the main filler or reinforcement (10-70%), with PE, PP , PVC and other macromolecule resins as the matrix, using a new type of environmentally friendly composite material that is melted and blended through extrusion, molding or injection molding.
Wood-plastic composite material properties:
① Excellent processing adaptability,easy to realize personalized customization. Since the matrix is a polymer resin, the molding process can choose extrusion, hot pressing and injection molding methods, which can easily realize the personalized design and customization of the product, and it can be ordered, planed, sawed, drilled, and painted on the surface. Excellent processing adaptability.
② Excellent strength performance. Wood-plastic products conforming to national standards have a tensile strength of 15MPa or more, a bending strength of 20MPa or more, a flexural modulus of 2200MPa or more, and an impact strength of 15kJ/m2 or more. It can meet the needs of many application markets.
③Excellent durability. The wood-plastic composite material has extremely low water absorption, good shape stability, waterproof and moisture-proof, and can also be insect-proof and termite-proof after treatment. According to different quality grades, the outdoor service life of wood-plastic products can range from 3-25 years.
④The appearance on the tall. Compared with traditional MDF products, anti-corrosion wood products, plastic products and even some metal products, wood-plastic composite materials have a colorful appearance, which not only has the texture of natural solid wood materials and beautiful wood texture, but also can be customized according to your own ideas The color you need, the appearance can be said to be truly tall.
Application areas of wood-plastic composite materials:
① Municipal garden landscape.outdoor decking, tables and chairs, gallery frames, fences, pavilions, flower boxes, etc.;
② Packaging logistics.pallets, boxes/boxes, etc.;
③ Vehicles and ships.interior decoration materials, heat insulation materials, etc., such as automobiles and ships;
④ Home improvement and construction.green building materials (small villas), simple movable consoles, window frames, door panels, door linoleum, decorative materials, flooring, furniture and other building materials;
⑤ Other categories.disposable tableware, hotel toothbrushes, agricultural greenhouse supports, rackets, skis, stage decking, etc.
Wood-plastic composite materials are also popular in Asia, especially in Japan, where the application of wood-plastic materials in platforms, floors, walls and interior furniture is becoming more and more popular.
