Introduction to Wood-plastic composite cladding

Summary description:


        Wood-pastic composite wall cladding, also known as WPC cladding, is a new Amalgam materials and generally have a composition of wood dust & Fibre in addition to thermoplastic materials such as Polypropylene, Polyethylene along with additives & different pigments as colorants. They are preferred for furnishing exterior & interiors walls & flooring outdoors due to their excellent qualities such as fade and stain resistance, higher thermal & abrasion resistance, and excellent resistance to termites as well as resistant to UV. They offer a rich and appealing look the places they are installed.


General performance coefficient

1. Slip resistance:

The Amalgam materials in the cladding is the best ranking for bare-foot slip resistance.

2. Weathering Resistance:

Boards of WPC cladding have very low moisture uptake. This is a key for mould & mildew resistance.

3. UV resistance:

4000 hours accelerated Xenon-arc Exposure, the Boards turned slightly more clear and coloured.

4. Abrasion resistance:

The resistance to abrasion is similar to natural Oak wood.

5. Fungus Resistance:

Whatever fungus the wood composite is exposed to, it is extremely durable. Moreover, aging test does not affect this durability.


Installation Method -Joist Installation: 

1. During the joists installation, use the electric drill bore a hole on the concreted ground or under-frames, and then put expansive plastic covered screws in the holes and drill holes on the joists which diameter should be less than the 3/4 screw. Use 7mm drills to drive into the pre-drills 3mm depth, making sure that screws can be driven into the joists The distance between two nails in the joist should be in 800-1000mm.

2. Use matching stainless clips to fix joists on the ground. When the joists placement finished, drill holes and insert plastic expansion screws, then fix stainless clips on the ground with screws. The distance between two joists is 300mm.

3. Joists are not structural components: they can only be laid down on the flat ground. They can not be fastened to the ground or to each other. A 10mm gap must be left between the joist end and a wall. When butting two joists, a gap of 10mm in length must be left.
