WPC stands for Wood Plastic Composites and is a flooring made of a sheet PVC composite decorative layer as a top layer and a wood plastic composite foam as a bottom layer, which is processed by pressing and laminating.
SPC is the abbreviation of Stone Plastic Composites, which is made by extruding the SPC substrate from an extruder combined with a T-shaped die, and using a three-roller or four-roller calender to laminate and emboss the PVC wear-resistant layer, PVC colour film and SPC substrate, respectively, at one time by heating, which is a product that does not use glue.
WPC wood-plastic composites are a new type of composite material that has flourished in recent years at home and abroad. It refers to the use of polyethylene, polypropylene and polyvinyl chloride instead of the usual resin adhesives, mixed with more than 50% of wood flour, rice husk, straw and other waste plant fibres to form new wood materials, and then produced by plastic processing processes such as extrusion, moulding and injection moulding to produce panels or profiles. It is mainly used in the building materials, furniture and logistics packaging industries. The panels that are formed by hot extrusion after mixing plastic and wood powders in proportion are called extruded wood-plastic composite panels.
WPC is made from pure plastic with natural fibre fillers, where the plastic can be HDPE, PP, PS and PVC, while the natural fibres include wood powder and sackcloth fibres. These new wood plastic composites (WPC) have excellent mechanical properties, high dimensional stability and can be used to form complex shapes.
WPC wood plastic composites are finding great application in the decoration of non-structural outdoor housing and are also being developed for other housing construction materials such as kitchens, bathrooms, balconies and outdoor gardens and parks.
