What is WPC?
WPC (Wood plastic composite) invented in the late 1980s, is a new type of material compounded by plastic and wood fiber. WPC composite decking is an excellent decking solution for outdoor living. The largest output is the composite material with PE and PVC resin as the base material. All of Wallong products are made of HDPE (High Density Polyethylene), so the strength, UV Aging performance, and life span of the HDPE decking are the best. Composite decking with HDPE integrated within it has a higher tensile strength compared to PVC decking, meaning that it will resist any splintering and decay that could happen to PVC decking. As we all know, PE-based plastic-wood composites have excellent aging resistance and are mainly used as outdoor decorative materials. PVC material is mainly used for interior due to its poor performance in strength and weather resistance.
How WPC is made?
What's the most remarkable thing about WPC is composite decking created by natural wood and plastic fibers. It is made from sawdust, pulp bamboo, peanut hulls, etc. WPC composite decking is a perfect substitute for natural wood and plywood. Furthermore, natural wood and plastic fibers work together to retain the authentic finish and feel of timber decking. For ourtdoor using, WPC product is is the perfect option with its performance on environmental, highly durable, no need painting, UV resistance, waterproof etc.
Benefits of using WPC composite decking
Since WPC decking contains HDPE, its material durability is better than its alternatives. This is because its blend and finish material make it resistant longer lifetime than normal wood decking. Protecting decking from resists fading, staining, scratching, and mold.
A main problem of wood decking is that it readily absorb water. Without the regular application of stains, sealers or paint, wood decking is easy to warping, splintering, cracking and rotting. In contrast, WPC composite decking are fully water-resistant to the core, which allows them to be installed in high moisture conditions without decaying.
Traditional wood decking is easy to getting mold and moss,and after long time using, the surface of wood decking is slippery. Under the wet situation, people are prone to fall or causes safety hazards when walking on the floor. On the contrary, WPC composite decking's special treatment makes the surface more rough to turn it into the ideal decking solution for both commercial and residetial application, such as parks, school, swimming pools and garden etc. You will have a safe paradise with Wallong wpc composite decking.
Unlike real wood, UV resiatance is one of the most extrodinary peformance of wpc decking. With the good raw material, Wallong products has strong UV resistance performance. As a resonpsible manufacturer, we will put product into our UV aging machine to test for 2000 hours which means 6-7 years in the ourdoor environment, the deck has no obvious change. Except in house test, Wallong products has tested in Intertek and the grey scale is class 4-5.
