Composite Decking Perth
The use of composite and plastic decking products as an alternative to timber may still be relatively new in Australia but there’s already a vast range of products available and it’s growing. Although there are rice husk-plastic and other fillers, as well as entirely plastic versions. Wood-Plastic Composite (WPC) deck products are the dominant type.
Composite and plastic products are produced by a machined extrusion process which ensures complete standardisation of products in terms of colour and shape as well as systematic control of the chemical additives.
The Manufacturing Process
Boards are manufactured via an extrusion process, whereby all the ingredients, including coupling agents, colorants, blowing agents, UV stabilizers, foaming agents, and lubricants are placed in a large hopper, mixed, cooked and squeezed out to the desired board profile.
Boards generally come with either an embossed finish or ready for brushing with an additional coating. Brushing removes lubricants in the manufacturing process and can include much needed slip resistant benefits. A downfall of brushing is that it leaves wood fibers exposed to staining which is more difficult to remove than on normal timber decking.
They come in either hollow or solid boards. Hollow boards have an increased risk of absorbing atmospheric moisture and require a more accurate installation, but are cheaper.
