The wood industry has recently seen a strong trend toward new materials such as WPCs (wood-plastic composites). The wider range of forming options and improved technical characteristics of WPCs differentiate them from traditional wood
Abstract. Research on wood and natural fiber-plasticcomposites 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
12 Nov 2008 Futuresoft Technologies. Manalapan, New Jersey, usa. Abstract. wood plastic composites are an important and growing segment of the forest products industry. This industry segment has grown in double digit percentages
wood plastic composites (WPC) are a new material group that presently is North America has a leading position in the field of WPC production and use, in 2005 Just as in the usa, decking profiles for the exterior are produced by means of
Since last decade, wood plastic composites (WPC) have been a fast growing industry and decking represents the main part of their market in sectors such as garden furniture, automotive and buildings. WPC are widely used in usa. They are
