Global Wood-Plastic Composites Market 2014-2018

About Wood-Plastics Composites

Wood-plastic composites are materials, which hare made up of wood flour or fiber and plastic resins. These composites also contain a certain degree of additives, which foster the integration of the wood and plastic and aid in the manufacturing process. Most wood-plastic composites are manufactured using wood and plastic wastes or recyclates. A minor share of these products is manufactured using virgin wood and plastic materials. Extrusion is largely employed for the manufacturing process, followed by injection moulding.
