While wood-plastic composites WPCs broke onto the scene in the 1990s as materials primarily extruded into boards for decking and fencing, optimization of these materials for injection molding since then has greatly diversified their potential applications as durable and sustainable materials.
Extrusion of Wood Plastic Composites Douglas J. Gardner University of Maine Advanced Engineered Wood Composites Center Orono, Maine 04469 David Murdock Fiber Composites 5775 Cells Mill Drive Dublin, Ohio 43017 Abstract The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of wood plastic composite extrusion. Covered in this work is a brief
In addition, wood plastic composite profiles can also be embossed and/or extruded with other materials including capstocks to provide additional functional and/or aesthetic advantages. With over 30 years of experience extruding wood plastic composite materials, Formtech can help you determine if this material represents a viable solution for you.
Newcomers from the wood industry tend to think plastic is plastic. In reality, both the fiber and plastic properties are critical to extrusion success. PVC, polyethylene, and polypropylene are the most commonly used plastics in WPC extrusion.
