Like the name implies, Wood-plastic composites (WPCs) are composite materials made of wood fiber/wood flour and thermoplastic(s)(includes PE, PP, PVC etc.).
Wood Plastic Composites (WPCs) are produced by thoroughly mixing ground wood particles and heated thermoplastic resin. The most common method of production is to extrude the material into the desired shape, though injection molding is also used. WPCs may be produced from either virgin or recycled thermoplastics including HDPE, LDPE, PVC, PP, ABS, PS, and PLA. Polyethylene based WPCs are by far the most common.
There are many applications for WPC, for example, parquet application inside households, decking and fencing application in garden and outside uses, spa and bath floor applications, furniture and sports good applications etc.
