The material, which is an eco-friendly combination of recycled wood flour and recycled plastic,
has opened new doors for the construction materials market.
Why wood plastic composite?
Wood plastic composite is an eco-friendly material composed of natural wood (wood powder) and polymer (PP, PE or PVC). It is a new type of exterior material with luxurious wood texture, the scent of solid wood, water resistance, moisture resistance, and insect resistance.
Wood plastic composite is a product made by extruding wood powder and polymer resin to compensate for the shortcomings of wood. It has been widely used as a substitute for wood for more than 15 years. It is becoming increasingly common in not only the United States but also Japan and Europe.
Wood plastic composite is an eco-friendly product that is harmless to the human body, is recyclable, and has excellent resistance/durability against heat, humidity, shock, friction, etc. Its use is rapidly expanding in the field of building materials.

Global Preservation Treatment Wood Regulations and Wood Plastic Composite
Wood materials used for outdoor facilities, which we often think of as eco-friendly wood, are in fact treated with chemical preservatives to prevent corrosion. This is becoming a social issue, as such materials are said to release poisonous heavy metals that are fatal to the ecosystem and the human body.
In addition, half of the world's wood production is still being used as fuel. In other words, contrary to the perception that trees absorb greenhouse gases, wood materials are contributing to global warming and desertification. Wood plastic composite, a natural substitute, is rapidly growing due to the ban on the use of preservative-treated wood (CCA), which threatens the environment and is harmful to public health.
In the future, with growing interest in children's health and the environment, consumers' preference for WPC is expected to increase. In the coming low-carbon society, wood plastic composite will contribute to greenhouse gas reduction and help protect forests as an alternative to wood.
