Engineered Plastic Systems
Our plastic lumber products are fast becoming a standard alternative to traditional wood materials, and offer a range of benefits that composite lumber, PVC products, and wood do not. The use of our synthetic lumber can help to achieve LEED’s credits for green building construction.
Ultimate Materials Guide - 3D Printing with Wood Filament
Wood-based filaments are typically a composite that combines a PLA base material with wood dust, cork, and other powdered wood derivatives. Typically, the filament consists of around 30% wood particles, but the exact number may vary depending on the brand. The presence of these particles gives the 3D printed parts the aesthetics of real wood.
Special Report: Wood-Plastics Composites - Canadian ...
Although one well-known industry expert, Jim Morton, says the wood-plastic composite industry “is credible now,” the 2004 Progress in Woodfibre-Plastics Composites conference had a somewhat defensive and introspective tone, as this young industry searches for an identity that goes beyond deck boards.
Wood-Filled Plastics: They Need the Right Additives for ...
Wood-plastic composites, or WPCs, are already a 1.3-billion-lb market and are growing at 20% annually. That’s big enough to draw increasing attention from additives suppliers to the particular needs of WPC applications in residential decks, railings, fencing, doors, window frames, outdoor spas, and gazebos.
