Extruded or compression-molded wood-filled/thermoplastic lumber for outdoor decks — the "killer app" according to John Pruett, marketing manager for CertainTeed Corp.'s (Valley Principia has pegged the total demand for wood-filled/thermoplastic materials in North America and Western Europe at $2 billion by 2007.
WPC deck board, alone, accounts for about 50 percent of overall WPC volume and has staked claim to a good piece of the $4.6 billion U.S. decking market. “Wood-plastic composite has increased from 4 percent in 1996 to 14 percent in 2006 of the overall decking market,” says Ferrell. That percentage is expected to grow to
In the past, some North American composite makers used polyurethane, polypropylene, or PVC as their plastic. Except for EverGrain, which is made using compression molding, each deck product mentioned in this article is made by forcing a hot mixture of materials through a heated die that forms the
decking. N.A.Hedaoo1, L.M. Gupta2,G.N. Ronghe3, S.K.Parikh4. Abstract. Thin-walled cold-formed profiled steel decking is used extensively in the composite “North American Specification (NAS 2007) for the Design of Cold-Formed yield point of steel when they are subject to compression in flexural bending, as
Regarding solely wood-plastic composites, there is a global production growth trend (), where it is primarily used for decking (;). Specifically in 2010 and 2012, the European, North American and South American production reached 220 and 260, 900 and 1100, and 10 and 20 thousand tonnes, respectively (). Manufacturers

Cold-Formed Steel .. may require that compression zones in the deck be reduced to an “effective width,” but as tensile
Eco-friendly, sustainable manufacturing processes and a high percentage of recycled content are two other hallmarks of capped composite decking. All composite deck boards for the North American market are capped and made using pre- and post-consumer recycled content. The wood
Markets and technologies for wood and natural-fiber composites are very different in North America and in Europe. Half the North American market is decking or deck-related components, and most of the rest is also extruded profiles—from marine pilings to pencils. There is some compression molding of automotive and
Color advances in composite decking gives homeowners a long-lasting, low-maintenance option for outdoor living. Remodelers can transform a dull “According to the North American Deck and Railing Association, 40 million decks are 20 years old or older, making them prime for replacement.” Those numbers present a
