Wood-plastic composite panels consist of PVC dust and wood dust, thus combining the properties of the two raw materials into a single product. Due to the PVC dust, WPC boards are rigid, waterproof, and corrosion-resistant.
Wood dust contributes to the final shade of the panels, facilitates their processing and gives them a lower elasticity coefficient. These features make WPC boards a better product than phenolic film faced (Tego) plywood and three-layer yellow boards.
What is composite wood? (WPC)
Known as WPC, composite wood is made from wood flour, virgin PVC, and additives. WPC panels are resistant to rain, snow, and sunlight. We recommend composite wood for various outdoor settings. WPC panels are eco-friendly, do not require maintenance or protective paints, and the total cost involves only purchasing the material. Unlike wood, which changes its appearance over time or rots, WPC boards preserve their aesthetic properties.
The advantages of WPC boards
Increased lifespan, do not rot.
Resistant to fungi and insects.
100% recyclable and reusable material.
They maintain their appearance over time, do not require repainting.
Increased resistance to temperature changes and climate change.
Low coefficient of expansion.
It does not freeze or chip.
SThey can be processed using heat.

The differences between the characteristics of WPC sheets and wooden boards
|WPC Boards||Wooden boards|
|The effect on the environment||100% recyclable and reusable, partial consumption of wood dust resulting from wood processing||They are a disaster for the forests, requiring high-quality wood|
|Moisture resistance?||Increased resistance to moisture and weather||They absorb water|
|Chemical resistance||Resistant to acid and alkaline solutions||Slightly affected by chemicals|
|Rot resistance||They have antisepsis (do not rot or mould)||Requires special treatment|
|Insect repellent||Very resistant to insects and algae effect, and marine organisms/td>||Requires special treatment|
|Resistance to cracks and distortions||No cracks appear, and they do not change their original shape||It cracks and distorts due to differences in temperature or humidity|
|Lifespan||30-50 years, easy to maintain and clean||Average, very dependent on maintenance.|
|Fire resistance||Increased fire resistance||Requires special treatment|
