WPC is a composite material obtained by mixing wood fiber and thermoplastic that can be processed just like
a plastic but has the best features of wood and plastics.
Vapolen WPC is general purpose wood fiber reinforced homopolypropylene composite to be used in injection moulding. The filler’s lower price and the increase in the strength/stiffness of thermoplastic makes the composite attractive in weight reduction compared to glass fiber reinforced thermoplastic which in turn affects the transport costs.
Using a special compounding technique makes the wood and thermoplastics to be mixed well. Special additives lead the product to have improved mechanical properties and reduced water absorption. General purpose types can be modified with additives according to the customer requirements. WPC can be used in a variety of applications due to its various colours.
