Opportunities for Wood Plastic. Composites in the Highway. Construction Sector. Authors: Derek Thompson, Eric Hansen, Chris. Knowles, Lech Muszynski. Description: An assessment of market opportuni- ties for wood plastic composites (WPCs) in the U.S. highway construction sector. Annual consumption was estimated
construction. Construction is one of the largest markets for composites globally. While growth has slowed in regions hit by a decline in residential housing . in framing, the company says, adding that pricing is comparable to wood frame construction. Unlike extrusions, where plastics are pushed through a heated die,.
Wood-plastic composites (WPC) have been used as construction materials for many years due to their beneficial properties in comparison to synthetic fiber composites, like decreased density and lower costs . Thematerials used to process WPC are mainly polyolefin thermoplastics, such as polyethylene (PE),
The major output of the project would be new production technologies and lines of value added wood plastic composites (RubWPC), and a new generation of RubWPC products with superior characteristic over classic WPCs for construction. Key outcomes, impacts, expected uptake and potential market of the project can be
Wood-plastic composites (WPCs) are one of the fastest growing construction components in the wood composites industry. Their popularity is due to low maintenance, high durability, and resistance to termites and other insect attacks. However their widespread usage has been limited due to their high cost
Shanghai Seven Trust Industry Co., Ltd, founded in the year 2008, is a hi-tech enterprise which specializes in the R&D, sales, and service of WPC materials, Provide excellent products, professional technology and sincere service.
