Recycled Plastic Wood Decking Materials

Posted on 12:02 am | Posted in WPC Decking Blog | Posted by Admin

Research on wood and natural recycled plastic wood decking materials has spanned several decades. However, there was relatively little market activity in the United states outside of the automotive industry prior to the last 5 years. Recently, however, the U. S. recycled plastic wood decking materials industry has grown tremendously. Although its total market size is small relative to the traditional wood composites industry, the U. S. recycled plastic wood decking materials industry is growing quickly and has attracted the interest of both the plastics and the forest products industries. Researchers, raw material suppliers, equipment manufacturers, and end product manufacturers often work together to develop, produce, and market these composites.

Composite Wood Decking

Installation Recycled Composite Decking Boards

As Recycled composite decking boards are standardised and normally much larger than pure timber boards, installation cost may actually be reduced. This is because larger boards mean larger areas can be decked more quickly, potentially saving labour costs. Decking supplied with below surface or ‘hidden’ fixings also require fewer screws than untreated timber, which needs a minimum of 4 screws for each and every board, regardless of length.

Long-lasting Results, Not Temporary Looks

With all of the activity meant to occur on a deck, materials should be sturdy, safe and easy to clean. The process to care for recycled composite decking can pose a serious problem. With a recycled composite deck, cleaners can leave the decking looking powdery. Products needed to “clean” the decking can be a threat to the environment. The finish is frequently easily scratched and shows flaws immediately.
