Many projects will be designed for outdoor wood construction materials to do, and why? From the exterior, the WPC can play as real purpose, below we take a closer look at this material.snap together outdoor tiles

WPC material is understood to mean mainly engineering plastic as raw material for a wood substitute material, which is made of plastic and wood chips in accordance with the approximate 1: 1 ratio made. Its application can save a lot of natural wood, help protect the environment, because of the natural fiber ingredients, wood has a better anti-UV (ultraviolet) performance and lower thermal expansion properties.outdoor vinyl patio flooring

And WPC has antiseptic properties, is more difficult to crack than the wood preservative, mildew, greener, longer service life characteristics, suitable for use in harsh outdoor conditions. Relative logs, wood materials, better stability, is simple to install, without the advantages of colored paint. In appearance because of its surface has simulated wood grain and color perception, and therefore become the eco-friendly alternative to wood materials.

But WPC is flawed, although approximate timber visually, but it is difficult to reach and touch wood natural characteristics, such as: texture monotonous, single color, unnatural. And relatively easy in terms of timber processing, not free to be processed into the desired shape. So it limited its scope, currently mainly used in flooring, siding, railings, gazebos, pergolas, lounge chairs, gardening Pieces (flower boxes, flower beds) such as the above.wood composite products for wall
