Wood Plastic Composite

WPC is a composite material , 55% made of wood natural fibers and 33% made of polypropylene. It can be used for products of different shapes and colors, still maintaining the elegance of wood and the advantages of a not completely natural material.
WPC can be used for the flooring of terraces, swimming-pools, verandas, patio gardens, gazebos, exterior designs, and much more. In seaside environments, it can be efficiently used for walkway surfaces, wharfs, handrails or panel sections.
Yes, it is more expensive than softwood, although the treaty, but it has a very similar price to the fine exotic wood (teak or similar), or the kind of wood that can be used outside for decades without any deterioration.
WPC does not require any special maintenance, it is easy to clean thanks to the well-thought combination of wood and polyethylene, that restrain the growth of mould and fungus. It is suggested to clean it by using neutral floor detergents, and if using a high-pressure cleaner, it is necessary to keep the machine at least 30 cm away from the walking surface.

Care & Maintenance

To remove surface dirt and chalk, WPC decking should be washed periodically with soap and water. Washing will also prevent the build-up of pollen and debris, which can cause mould and mildew to grow. Pressure washers should be used only to wet and rinse a wpc deck, not to “blast-off” soiling agents. Attempting to do so can drive the dirt deeper into the material. Before washing your entire deck, test a pressure washer on an inconspicuous area.
Deck cleaning products usually contain sodium percarbonate and a detergent, which are effective on normal dirt and grime and bleach out mould and mildew stains. Oxalic acid cleaners are effective on rust stains caused by metal furniture. Commercial degreasers contain propylene glycol, sodium hydroxide, and various detergents for removing grease and oil stains. Spot removers and thinners may be used sparingly on particularly stubborn grease or oil stains, but they should be washed off quickly with water to prevent damage to the grain pattern. These products typically include petroleum distillates, xylene, methanol, acetone, or other organic solvents.
Because it is a plastic and wood composite, wood plastic composite resists accidental staining better than regular wood decking. Many stains can be removed with household cleaners and degreasers. Act quickly after staining occurs for best results; do not allow stains to penetrate the deck’s surface or to set under direct sunlight. To avoid grease stains and burns, keep a splatter guard underneath any barbecue grills on your deck. To prevent water from accumulating and staining your deck’s surface, make sure the deck boards have adequate gaps between them to allow for water drainage.
While not recommended, wood plastic composite composite decking can be stained after three months of exposure to various weather conditions. Be sure to use a stain intended for use on composite wood products. Staining means that your deck will require more upkeep. Always test a small, hidden portion of the deck before staining the entire deck. Painting wpc is not recommended, as most paints do not adhere to the surface well and will soon peel. Because composite wood products do not accept paint or stain as well as wood, they will not look the same as painted or stained wood.
